When you're around I suspect that you take charge....as you should....intercepting other dogs, people...letting her know that you'll handle the situation. That's probably not how your wife deals with it....she's probably letting the dog make the decisions about other dogs/people.

The shock collar can backfire on you....ie; the dog sees the cat and gets zapped...it's the cats fault. Everytime she sees the cat she gets 'punished' so, now she needs to get rid of the cat.

A better approach is to teach her that the cat is not hers to chase, taunt or harass. You do that by stepping between them...declaring that you own the cat....it's yours...not hers. Make her back-up....that tells you that she got the message. This takes consistency....if she gets to chase the cat sometimes then, the lesson takes alot longer to learn.
