We adopted a puppy (lab-shepherd mix) as a 3 1/2 month old (now 6 mo) and have been struggling with how to train him not to chase our two cats. Our dog trainer maintains that we should make sure that he doesn't fixate on them and that we should correct him when he does, which we have done. We doesn't pay too much attention to them now, but occasionally wants to play with one of them. He wants to play with one more than the other (the one that hasn't stood up to him much). I was hoping that the cats would help "train" him by letting him know when he crosses the line and one of them has and he doesn't mess with him much. We have thought that a vibrating e-collar might be effective and quicker than verbally correcting.

Any thoughts on how to train this guy so we can have a peaceful menagerie? Thanks!
