    Default HELP needed- My dog is obsessed with birds

    My 16 month old bulldog is obsessed with birds. Everyday crows swoop down and feed on the hill being my yard and drive my dog crazy. He barks and runs all over the yard trying to get the crows. He is out of control. I have tried a bark collar, spray collar, spraying him with a squirt bottle, however he is impervious to all attempts to stop him. I worry the neighbors will become annoyed by this barking, so I lock him in his kennel. Any suggestions of how to stop this behavior?

    Are the crows there all the time or only during specific times of the day? I listen to this pet behaviorist out here in So Cal who sometimes advises on the use of an airhorn for behaviors you would like your bully to change. Just blow it when Angus starts going nuts over the crows and see how he responds. I've never used one myself but it may be worth trying. You can buy airhorns on Amazon, btw.

    Oh, and Angus is a real cutie!!

    I wonder if there's a way to stop the crows from feeding in that area?

    On a lighter note, the title made me

    If you can do this(don't hate me) if you kill a crow, and hang it where the other crows can see it-they will not come back. They will move on.
