How can I train my dog not to chase rabbits while on leash walk?
Bella is 85 lbs and 1-1/2 years old, so still kind of a puppy. She walks very well otherwise. Even with squirrels, I have trained her to sit until they get up a tree.
Rabbits are a whole other thing. She strains and whines, and it is all I can do to hang on to her. If she sees the rabbit before I do, I sometimes have to let her go, and catch up with her when the rabbbit has found a safe place and she can't get to it any longer.
I appreciate any suggestions.
