    Hi;

    Find out if you have a board certified animal behavior veterinarian in your area. That would be your best bet for getting help with him.

    What you have is a cur and they are not like other dogs. They are very intelligent and need allot of work and a real job to do. They are bred to hunt wild boar etc. Tough dogs.

    You don't want to risk another dog life. You can get hurt, the dogs can be hurt, and most of all it will just make things so much worse,

    If you can't find a boarded vet behavior vet then try to go on the vet behavior website and see if you can find some qualified help from there online.

    Good luck.:catahoularescueil@yahoo.com


    Also try writing the problem into these people as they may have some suggestions.

    Thanks for the continued suggestions!

    Quick progress update: tried yet another trainer and puppy has greatly improved his responsiveness while in a pinch collar. He is now cooperative enough to go on my morning run and mostly stay in "heel" position; still some pulling excitment when passing fenced barking dogs, but the lunging/barking/chaos is greatly improving. Took him to the barn this weekend and he spent some time playing (while leashed) with two other dogs. Still a long way to go, but huge improvements.

    ETA: If he is ever "socialized" enough where off-leash play is tolerable, he'll get to spend his weekdays at the 10 acre ranch I original planned to use when we first were considering adding a dog to the family. Until then, our little morning runs are wearing him out enough that he's enjoyable to be around the rest of the day.
