Can a cat hurt a big dog?

A cat can definitely injure a dog. Instances where cats are violent against dogs happen when cats feel threatened by the dog or simply annoyed. Don’t worry though.

What do you do when a big dog attacks a little dog?

Best to try to act calm so that you appear in charge, in control, and use simple low-tone “leave it” commands to take the emotional charge out of the situation. Ditto for the owner of the aggressive dog. Screaming at your dog and flailing about to no effect only shows you’re not in control.

What makes a dog attack another dog for no reason?
