You done real bad.
The most useless animal in the entire universe is the blue healer.
I'd recommend the following:
Shoot the dog.
Get a shock collar for the wife.
I'd send you mine but my wife still needs it, really. Getting it on her was a real fight but once around her neck just a touch of the button keeps it there.
It sure is a lot quieter around here.
Gee wizz, a blue healer
If you'd a got a Border Collie you wouldn't need the collar and your points with your wife, neighbors and visitors would go way up.
PS: This isn't intended to be a flame, I just dislike healers.
The truth is that the use of the collar is for reinforcement not training. It won't work the way you wish to use it.
To cure jumping up on people.
Start with you.
When it puts it's front paws on your leg, press his rear paws with your toes. Don't stomp them, cause it'll hurt. Simultaneously give a command, like NO! or Down!
Healers are bone heads but will catch on quickly.
Teach your wife to do the same thing.
As for stopping chasing cats. That's a waste of time. Dogs are for catching cats. Hard to tell I dislike cats more than I dislike healers, huh?
When you mean NO mean NO, and put a bit of a growl in your voice.
NO can even be his name stated strongly with a bit of a growl in your voice.
If he begins to kind of ignore you or snear, as is kind of sulking away and turning his head to look back with one eya and seems to be saying "Just wait until you're not around", shoot it in the ***** with a BB gun. When the wife isn't around that is.;)
I've trained bunches of stock dogs including two healers (before I quit taking them in_. The foot on the toes works and they begin to under stand "no". However, the farther they are from you, the deafer they get. Thus the BB Gun. Lots less expenisive than a collar and with their poor trajectory its good LRH practice.;)
