Yeah, that's an attention issue and you'll have to spend time (and always a lot of time with a dog with high drive) training him to pay attention to you and what you want from him at all times.

Go back to the beginning with attention training and try to avoid areas with high distraction points (cats in Hoss's case).

Lotsa' luck LD

LaDi- As you read in my past posts, I was having the same cat-prey drive issue with Spock and less with Eva on walks.

I'm happy to report that with feral cats we sight on walks (many) there are virtually no continuing issues with lurching or barking- just some attentive glances paid. In fact, now I have to point out cats I sight first by saying "Kitty, leave it" as sort of a game to make our walks more interesting. I then praise either Spock or Eva for acting calm with me and continue on walk.

The other evening a feral cat came walking opposite way down middle of sidewalk Eva and I were on, headed straight toward us! Not wanting a face-face feline/canine confrontation, I diverted Eva over to opposite side of street. She looked at the kitty, but didn't bark or lurch. That cat had some gal, though!

Only issue with cats now are those ones that come right in front of our front windows promenading to and fro like they own the yard, sometimes sitting obliviously on front walk while both Dobes are barking like lunatics inside! (Cats are evil...)

Ten Doberman Rules
Poke Everything.
It's New? Bark At It.
Moves? Chase It.
Doesn't Move? Smell It.
Liquid? Spill and Dribble It.
Treat or Food? Wolf It Down.
Not Food? Chew It Slowly, Be Quiet & Hide From Human.
A Toy? Shred & Destroy It.
Stuffed? De-Stuff It.
Bites You Back? Wrestle It!

Yepper back to the at lunch we exceptions...good manners all the way..........set him up for success! Approached the back door at lunch ......and he tried to lunge out the door to check out the cats..... both ears up with that demonic stare in his eyes.............boom...door shut......he jumps back........I started to open door again.....he stood there ...looked up at me .....waited for me to go out the door....also waited for me to invite him thats more like him !!!!
Atta boy..........then gotta nub rub.

Thinking ......If necessary when off leash our fenced yard...... I will go back to my 15 foot lead ...allowing me to correct him in the event he refuses my call.

My correction method with Hoss is to simply apply constant leash pressure .......until he gives in to the pressure.... and moves towards me .......then I loosen the pressure on his lead ..... allowing him to voluntarily come to me as requested.

Hoss was informed this afternoon his CAT PREYING day are over...........done.......all done!!!!! I think he understood......

Glad you are doing better with your pups spock...........Hoss will pick up fast .........he knows better!!!
