That book looks great, definitely going to get it. Thank you Jackienmutts. I have tried looking at some puppy classes but can't tell the good from the bad at the moment so think i'm going to have to try and go along to a few before the new one arrives. Would you suggest maybe joining more than one class? does it matter how many you take your dog to, or would that possibly be counter affective as it could be too much to take in/more chances to catch something...? Also like the thought of several clickers, hadn't thought about it before but would be useful to catch the correct behaviour without running around for half an hour trying to find out where I left one! how would you have gone about this given a second chance Tigerlily? would you distract them from the 'prey' and hopefully teach them to ignore it or would you of tried to get them more used to it by making it a part of their everyday life? I have a friend that has rabbits so could easily teach them that they are friend not prey, although wild rabbits would be a bit different i'm sure.
