I found with Miggy, in just three days, teaching him "leave it" in conjunction with his crate taught him not to chase the cat. Whenever he started fixating on her, which of course she'd fixate on him and they'd have a pretty epic stare-down before Miggy would just charge at her. She stood up for herself a few times, but usually just ran in another room which would then be a game of chase to Miggy. So if he didn't leave her alone when I said, "leave it", I would wait until he charged at her and would snatch him up and put him in a time-out. He learned quickly when he does something bad he gets a time-out. Took three days, but it's been about a month since he's even thought twice about chasing her. He's getting pretty fluent w/ "leave it" in regards to stray cats too.

That method worked just as well tweaking his housebreaking skills too.

I've used the leashing method too. It's easier to have better control of the situation.
