7 month old excitable with the kitty

My cat is brilliant with dogs for my previous dog Tess played a motherly role to her when she was a kitten. But when Tess died she didn't have other dogs to socialise with and so I don't think she knows what some are capable of. My new pup Bear got introduced to her straight away firstly through scent, then sight and so on but there's never been a calm introduction since! Whenever he see's her he'll whine constantly and wag his tail, bless him I know he has good intentions but he nips her ears, pulls her tail and she just keep's purring, rubbing herself against his face and on the odd occasion warning him with a stare if he get's to rough. But he just doesn't calm down and she's such a petite little thing and he's a massive lumbering oaf! They aren't soft nips though because sometime's she cries out when he nips to hard and then continue's to be affectionate - she put's up with a lot. This is always from a height though because on the floor she'll just run away and they're be a massive chase. It's like clash of the titan's sometimes honestly!

Does anyone have any suggestions to prepare him for a calm introduction? And any idea's on how to teach him some manner's for the lady?

Just work this into your 'leave it' training. And if he doesn't you REMOVE him from the situation calmly and crate him. No PUNISHMENT, just a firm and calm removal if he gets too excited.

Best way to teach 'leave it' is on this site (click ---> https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...t-puppies.html )
