My dog gets really jealous.

Hi, I'm new here. And I just had a question about my dog. Well he's a very jealous dog. He is most jealous and possessive of my mom. And usually it's just an annoying problem but today he bit my cats ear when my mom was petting her. And it wasn't a bad bite there's only a scrape and where the fur is missing. But I really don't want something like this to happen again. For now we are keeping them separated which is no problem because usually the cat is confined to upstairs and the dogs are confined to downstairs.

But I was just wondering if there's anything that I can do to help remedy the situation. If there's anything that I can do to reduce this behavior or to eliminate it alltogether.

And if there's any way that we can do this where my other family members have to do minimal work then that would work best because I'm the only one that's committed to training animals. But any advice on how to remedy the issue would be welcome.

Thanks for any input you can give me

You're mum is the one who has to solve this problem. I think it would be okay to have them together some hours a day, so the dog gets more used to the cat's presence. Giving to both of them exactly the same attention is crucial, although don't know how serious the problem is, and if what I'm saying would be possible.

What does a GPS tracker have to do with jealous dogs or clicker training?

You might look for information about resource guarding, specifically guarding people. There are protocols that can help. Resource Guarding, causes, prevention and modification

I strongly recommend working with a qualified trainer at least in the beginning. The basic idea is fairly simple, but timing, reading body language, and management can be tricky, so having experienced assistance is important. Also, because your dog has bitten your cat, you want to keep everyone safe as you work through this. Finding a Trainer, Behavior Consultant, or Behaviorist
