I have got a kitten and have a resident (good friend) who has a dog of 5 years (curly coated retriever).
The dog goes completely crazy when we try to get them to meet.
Even though the dog is on a leash, he tries to attack the kitten and becomes almost uncontactable for a couple of minutes at a time.
The kitten runs and hides under a locker where the dog does not reach, and the dog still tries with all his might to get there to attack the kitten.
I’ve never seen anything quite like it.
What should we do to get them to accept each other…
Or to get the dog to incorporate the kitten into the herd?
Any advice is appreciated!
Your friend has to train his dog at cat meetings and it can take a very long time.
If you are unsure of how to best train your dog, it is easiest to enlist the help of a professional dog trainer.
Hope it works out in the best way!
