FuzzButtMum SoCal Rebbel - Oh gosh, that's adorable! I hope to have that bond between my gang one day!

Can I ask how you introduced them? Would be good to hear of how you did it

SoCal Rebell No problem had the cat first, introduced the pup @ 10 weeks old, they're besties now

Chip18 That's certainly not going to hurt. I never did it with my puppies but it makes sense. Or maybe tire the puppy out first you also don't what a cat slapping the crap out of the puppy!

As long as the cats sense the new arrival is not insane, all should go well.

The link has some good advice in it.

And here:

I pretty much don't do dog parks don't do "I though my dog was friendly folks" my dogs don't have problems. You can ask other questions there or start a thread.

FuzzButtMum Hehe

I've read it's good to use the crate so that the pup and cats can get used to each others presence without physical contact and then slowly get them closer and then closer outside the crate....also praising the pup when he turns away from the cat or ignores them.....do you think that sounds right?

Thank you! I'll have a good read up on that x
Aww much different! I'd still limit the chasing but if they are cat/dogs, that's much much different!

Chip18 Puppy or dog? In any case:

In essence never allow the dog to chase the cat! Not one paw forward period!

Three dogs and up to 14 cats at once (cat rescue) for over 12 years and not a single cat/dog incident ever.
