I brought my WL into a home with a miniature poodle and two cats. From day 1 it was firm rules set that they were not play things, no chasing and no pouncing allowed. With consistent work it was easier and easier
I also made sure that I always had toys and treats on me so that it was ME that was the most exciting thing in the world. So if I saw fixation I pulled out a toy and immediately engaged him in play, soon he was running to me whenever he wanted to play because he knew I would always oblige. Even now whenever he grabs a toy he brings it to me first to see if I will play with him
Be firm and offer that outlet and you will see improvement, it took a few months before I allowed my two dogs unsupervised anywhere even just in the house but now I trust them to get along and just make sure I'm in hearing distance to step in if ever needed.
