Kate, she does pretty well with the leave it command when it comes to the cat and only chases her when the cat runs which thankfully isn't very often.

Same as the little dog, they play together, but if the dog takes off running, Gracie will chase her.

So will it confuse her encourage her to chase the flirt pole, but get onto her for chasing a cat/dog? I don't want to amp up her prey drive if it means creating trouble in the house.

Will she chase the little dog as in, "Oh yay, we're now playing chase?" or as in "Oh man, you're running away and so now I must eat you." way?

I don't think the flirt pole should increase her prey drive. As long as you're consistent every time with stopping her from chasing the dog and cat, it should be fine and she will learn the difference.

Kate, no she doesn't try to eat them, but if they run, she'll run after them and pounce on them. It's all in play, no aggression.

I can tell you that in the house you have nothing to worry about.
Now outside is a different story.
My dogs love the flirt pole and get along fine with my cats.
But if a neighbors cat crosses my yard it is open season.

Sampson's dad, I think we were posting at the same time. Thanks for the feedback. Do you just tie a rag at the end of yours?

Dogs are smart. They can tell the difference between a toy and an animal. I was using rabbit hide on mine and I did notice my dog got excited when she smelled our rabbits. So I think as long as you are not using kitty hide you should be perfectly fine. I have a cat and my dogs love it even though they play with the flirt pole.
I think of it like this. Who ever asks if chasing a ball will make a dog aggressive towards other animals? A flirt pole is only a toy on a string.

My pit wasn't raised with small animals, but doesn't go after my cats at all, since I introduced her properly from the very beginning. She understands the difference between Cat and Toy very clearly. She may not 'like' the cats because they tease and taunt her when she's in her kennel, but she tolerates them with good humor for my sake.

In my house onyx drive is out of control. Flirt pole has no affect on his drive to our cat nor the new 9 week old Boston terrier. If it's outside the house it's game in his eyes. Ad of present time he isn't DA and I truly believe he is driven for performance against himself and previous workouts

OP,now i can see why you were so defensive over the thread you got closed up
(DA puppy) due to your own ignorance and self doubt about your abilities.
it's one thing to be an apprentice of a breed, it's another completely to
stay and remain green about these dogs, as i can see you absolutely are
with your childlike mindset and views on dog ownership. the reason your
"pit bull like" dog goes after a flirt pole so intensely is called "prey drive"
it's this same innate drive that will trigger it to attack one of your other pets
in the not so distant future. you don't need this type of dog in your life either.
you should stick with cats and gerbils. IMHO.
