|From day one, the house rule has been that Rexy does not chase the cats. No exceptions. She is also not allowed to interfere when they play (she will be sent to her bed or her crate if she doesn't listen).
I also don't allow any mouthing, pawing or fur nibbling.
It's good to remember that cats and dogs have very different body language, and it sometimes doesn't translate...I make sure that Rexy backs off when the cats tell her to leave them alone.
One of my two cats won't tell Rexy to back off, so I have to make sure to step in. The other cat...well I sometimes have to step in and remove HIM from the situation. He's been known to not allow the dog to pass on the stairs...
