    OH YES to that one. Shmi is known to run to safety most of the time, but Sith is ummm, more of a hairball for brains kitten. He runs to a corner and then backs himself in, even bypassing an escape route to a safe place on the way to the corner smashicon

    Luckily one good hiss works as well as me telling Jedi to back off. It is much better but in the beginning when Jedi was scarey to the kittens, Sith would corner himself a few times a day.

    ok, well we have broken down and called a professional trainer in. He will be coming this Sunday to evaluate the situation and teach us some training. I swear he was laughing at me on the phone..it was funny he said, now we are talking about a little Boston Terrier right? kind of like, how on earth is this tiny dog causing you so much trouble...I said, yes he is a Boston Terrier but is 36lbs of muscle and plays very aggressively (and of course is very stubborn but what BT isn't?). For those who do not know, BT's come in 3 weight classes but the cap is 25lbs...(the vet said he is only about 5lbs overweight) hopefully the trainer can give us some advice on how to teach Augie that the kitties are off limits and maybe, just maybe, we have a shot at a peaceful co-existance:D I will let you all know how it goes!

    LOL! Calling in a professional trainer is NOT considered breaking down! It's doing the right thing - bringing in an expert, who has experience and insight into these situations shows how dedicated you are. appicon

    And you're right - size of dog doesn't have anything to do with the amount of trouble they can cause...the stories I could tell about my little ones, esp. my chihuahua evilicon ... :LOL:

    Good luck!!

    And put some pictures of the little dude up when you get a chance! Maggie will be more than willing to give his picture such a lecture! :D
