There was a huge german shepard who passed us by and I could see the dog looking quite scarily at Leo and Leo bristled right up and pulled with his ears bolt upright (or as upright as the floppy things will go :lol: ) and he went nuts! He doesn...

Re: Hello!

I hope so :) He's such a softie really and wouldnt hurt a fly (just spiders that the cat chases then Leo steals it and tries to eat it :lol: ) Well I have tried one thing and it seems to be working. he pulls a lot sometimes so I have been trying a different kind of technique that seems to be working...
