Happy-go-lucky labs can learn to be gentle with cats. While some Labradors are hostile to cats, most can be trained to get along with your kitty. The dogs' playfulness and size can seem threatening at first, but when they get used to each other, labs and cats often can become best friends.
Whereas, a cat that stands up for itself to the dog does better in the long run because the labs learns that the cat is not a prey. Generally, Labradors are not a high prey drive breed, but they may still chase the felines or small animals. Some individuals have more prey drive than that of the others.
