Default Certified cat chaser

Any suggestions for my almost 10 month old to stop chasing and pouncing on the cat. Her prey drive is very strong, anyway to stop this behavior?

I have a strict no chasing the cat policy in my house, it takes time, but it can be done. Hows the cat reacting to the pouncing? A lot of times my kitten gets Lakota in trouble, he actually goes after the dog it's hillarious. At one time I had to resort to the water bottle. Now if Lakota starts to run after the cat and she sees me she'll walk after the cat.

Well the cat is old and her attitude towards Sasha is mean. The moment she sees Sasha she will hiss. The moment she turns her back, Sasha goes after her and chases. Sometime it happens so fast, we can't catch her in time. If I see her look at her I will try to tell her to sit and treat her, treats are not always at hand. I catch her say no firmly and put her outside as a time out. It is quite frustrating, it seems like its gotten worse now that she is older, we are scared that she will hurt the cr

You need to teach a strong "LEAVE IT" and protect the old cat. I've had a lot of different cat/dog issues over the years and some cats like dogs and others do not. Just recently it took me almost 6 months to get my one dog, Kiya to accept the new kitten, she wanted to hurt the kitten. With Kiya the best exercise I did was to have her in a down stay with the best treats I have, homemade liver brownies. Eventually the kitten was able to walk freely without Kiya lunging to kill him. It takes a LOT of work and persistance. Theres not much you can do with the cat, they have a mind set of their own. Has the cat smacked the pup yet?

Yes it's like a regular, she gets slapped every now and then, that's when Sasha gets riled up and goes after her. I think Sasha wants to play but her commands go bad after she is in the actual chase. If I can get her before, she will leave the cat. I know it. Will take a lot of work, just wanted suggestions on what worked best for you
