Lunging at the cat

This is a discussion on Lunging at the cat within the Puppy Help forums, part of the Dog Training and Behavior category; Here's a better video. I'm so glad the cat likes to play with the puppy. Otherwise I think the puppy would be super bored. YouTube ...

That is FANTASTIC! They have really become friends, and amazingly worked out a way to play cross-species! Your cat is impressive with how dog savvy she has become! Wow! I had suspected they would learn to get along, but this is waaay beyond that!
You did a terrific job socializing them together. I bet the way you really monitored their interactions so carefully for those first few weeks is why they are doing so super well now. They may have learned to tolerate each other pretty well on their own, but this playful friendship is something special!

Yeah, it takes awhile. I did try this with my old rescue and failed, but I think what I learned from that situation and this one to ensure success is that you cannot have your dog off-leash if the cat is out until you are positive he won't chase. I probably played it overly safe in this situation, and I think it took about a month with treating them several times a day whenever the cat was comfortable enough to come out.

You may need to wait a bit for the cat to get comfortable with the new house too. I think it's easier to bring a new dog into a house with a cat vs. a new cat with a dog, but that's just my gut feeling. It's definitely easier the younger the dog too. Another reason the last dog failed is because he was 2 years with a high prey drive, and it just required way more management.

LOL. That's great. It's easier with an assertive cat. Our last cat was also really wimpy.
