Dog Started Going After Cat?

I got 2 kittens recently, but my dog has actually started going for my older cat who I've had for years. Why is this and how can I prevent it?

Your dog is trying to be good, but his prey drive is causing him stress. Instinct makes him want to go after the kittens, but he knows you would be very unhappy with him if he did. He is taking it out on his old friend.

Be sure to walk your dog more at this time and play with him more, using squeak toys and other prey-related toys that he can safely take out his stress on. Give him things to chew as well.

Be sure that your cat has places in every room where he can hide safely but the dog won't fit.

This should pass when the kittens get older.
