1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi, this is my first post here, so try to bear with me...

During August I adopted a 4 yr old husky from my local shelter. She had been abused and neglected, her previous owner took no care of her what-so-ever, aside the food and water.

Well this week my husky started living with my cat.
-I have 1 boxer and she loves cats
-I have 1 staffie who loves cats, but he doesn't like her soaking him with her grooming mouth

My husky is apparently terrified of cats... so my question is... any advice on getting her used to him cause he likes to lay with the dogs and he likes my husky until she jumps like somebody shot her in the booty when she notices he is laying by her.

I don't want her ever attacking him out of fear either*

Any advice?

Treats. Treats treats treats.

Look! Cat! Treat!
Oh you noticed the cat? Treat!
Look the cat walked in and you didn't jump AS quick? JACKPOT (lots of treats)!
Kitty in my lap! Treat!

Basically, make the cat a signal of very good things to come! If your dog isn't treat motivated, then use her motivator. Toys, praise - anything she loves. She only gets it when the cat is around (So for a few weeks, she may not get a lot of treats - only when cat is around).

If it helps, we used the same technique to train both of our huskies to be ok with our guinea pigs. Granted we take precautions and a sturdy cage to keep them separate but after a couple weeks they lost interest. Aside from Mia mothering them that is.

We did the treat thing when we got a bunny. If my dog stayed still while the bunny hopped around, she got a treat. After a few weeks, she would lay on her side and let the bunny climb on her Smile

Thanks for replying, that was very helpful. They have now moved onto sleeping in the same room.

Though they won't leave my side so I have to sleep with them... And now I get two showers a day... Yay dry skin lol. But things are proggressing very fast and very smooth, by Christmas they should be able to have free run of the house when I'm home.
