I recently got a Doberman puppy and I have two cats at home. I want to make sure that my puppy and cats have a good relationship and form a bond that will last through the Doberman's adulthood. I understand that Dobermans have a natural instinct to chase small animals, so I'm a bit worried about how my cats will react to the new addition to the family.
My cats are both indoor cats and have never interacted with a dog before. They are both very friendly and curious but can be a bit skittish around new things. I want to introduce them to the Doberman in the best possible way and make sure they feel safe and comfortable around him.
I'm also a first-time dog owner, so any tips on how to introduce my puppy to my cats and how to train him to coexist peacefully with them would be greatly appreciated. I want to make sure that my puppy grows up to be friendly towards my cats and that they can all live together in harmony.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer!
