You got some great tips above! That should help you out quite a bit.
Have you ruled out any medical issues with the dog? Have you tried a Thundershirt, calming collar with pheromones or any medication? That’s only a short term solution (like a band aid), but can sometimes help the process.
Can you hire a positive trainer (or even a Veterinary behaviorist) to come out and help you through this? If possible, it only seems fair to give everyone the best possible chance at getting along.
If you do this, please do your research. Do not hire anyone that uses aversive (choke, Prong or electric collars are a big no).
