    Rory is in my room now. I haven't had any progress with him and my dogs, and now I have another problem.... He is so far 'okay' with my rabbit, she is in her hutch and I covered It with a blanket. He will stare and stare at her, it really worries me. I did a 'watch me' session with just kibble and her hutch covered, and he did a pretty good job. I need some suggestions on how to get him relaxed and not focused on my rabbit, and I also need tips for introducing him to our cat. I know for sure he will want to herd them....

    Have you checked out the dogs chasing prey thread? I think some of the ideas there might help you - most hunting dogs have the same sort of focus on prey as herding dogs have on their charges so it is probably the same ideas for desensitisation that you need for the rabbit.

    Cats are harder but here is a good thread on cats with some useful links.

    Sorry if you already looked at these :-)
