My dog is obsessed with our family cat, she will sit and stare for long periods of time down the hallway because she knows the cat is in one of the bedrooms and she is not allowed to go down the hallway. My dog knows she is not suppose to stalk the cat and when she is about to get caught will come running from the hallway. If she gets close to the cat her whole body will shake. Can anyone offer a solution?
You should never leave your cat and dog unsupervised if this is the case. What breed is your dog? Some breed types are stimulated by small animals and their instinct tells them to chase. Even with constant and quality training, this instinct cannot be overcome in most cases. You need to make sure that your cat has a high place where it can escape to should the dog suddenly decide to go after it. It should have a place like this in each room of the house. Please protect your cat and seek the assistance of a professional dog trainer who may be able to help with this issue.
