What is your spot like with cats? Our Flo detests them and is making it her lifetime ambition to catch and probably eat one!
A couple of occasions when she has been off lead she has spied one from distance on the field and then she is off in hot pursuit Greyhound style. Nothing will stop her. I just laugh and wait for her to come back which she does.....looking ever so disappointed.

I have one who I know that, given the chance, he would kill a cat. Luckily at 14 he's now much less of a threat than he was in his young fit days when he could outrun and kill a rabbit.

None of my others have thankfully had such a high prey drive, and my current other dal was extremely well-behaved at a friend's house when their cat (used to dogs) ambled across the garden towards us. Daisy was slightly unnerved by it and sensibly kept her distance, showing no desire to chase. Smile

We don't currently have a cat, but Caper is very ncie with them when we go visiting. I could not have said the same for Kiri who would have chased and eaten anything small and furry - she decimated the bunny population of our old French village.

Most of my dalis have been fine with cats - they've nearly all lived wth them and one of our cats used to always sleep in the dogs beds with them. Howeversome dogs have very strong hunting instinct and if you have one of those cats are probably a no go area.

We have birds - a cockatiel and a budgie - and our dogs take absolutely no notice of them even though they are at doggy noce height. I have howver had to rescue them from the odd visiting dog as I tend to forget that not all dogs are 'bird proof'.

Kosi came from a home that had a cat and was fine with them until he met our resident one who was not at all welcoming to him. Kosi tried to make friends but she was hateful to him, lunging from under the table, growling at him if he got within 3 foot of her and the final straw was the scratch to his nose. Now he will chase her at every opportunity and as she is getting on in years my heart is in my mouth in case he catches her.

Kibby is a total hunter of anything small and furry so she was never going to be cat friendly Sad

We got two kittens last year and introduced them very carefully to the dogs over a couple of weeks. They all get on fine now in fact Sophie sits and washes 'her' cat and the cat licks her ears. However when we are out Sophie plays 'hunt the cat' and tries to drag me through bushes to chase the cats.

I think it is how you nurture them, rather than allowing what is their nature to chase.

My Draco chases the cats but he is getting better, he knows "No" and I've allowed him to sniff the cats when I hold them but once he starts getting rough I tell him no and push him back a little bit.

I have 2 cats but Poella seems ok with them. She was abit scared of them to start with and would come running behind my legs if one entered the room, thenshe got a bit brave and approached Oreo a bit too quickly for his liking so he hissed at her and she has been a bit more cautious approaching now. Oreo will tolerate a lick to the face but our older cat has no patience for the pup, she will however sit on the kitchen counter and pretend to ignore Poella barking at her.
