When at home, how will the dog behave with our cat?

How will the dog handle our cat?

We will give the dog exposure to cats, but we highly recommend introducing the dog to your pet cat in a specific way, which we will supervise. It's best if the cat has claws, although it's fine if they don't. We will introduce them with the dog not on a leash, but under our (and your) close supervision. The goal is to introduce the animals together in such a way that the dog won't chase the cat like a squirrel, but rather, the cat will stare down the dog. The cat should have a nice high place (like a cat tree) where the cat can always go to feel completely safe from the dog, and in this way, the cat can devise its own long-term strategy of figuring out a good way of living with the dog long-term.
