We’ve been using a title by Pippa Mattinson, and it’s pretty clear and comprehensive. No one book covers everything you want, or in a way that suits every puppy and situation so we’ve supplemented this with various web sources when necessary.
That reminds me of my neighbour's 2 cats, which never really got on, sitting next to each other in solidarity while the new puppy pranced back and forth, trying to engage with them towards getting them to play, it was in vain.
To summarise: 4.75 different cats and 4 different dogs at various times. Some dogs have been acquired as puppies, some as adults. Some cats as kittens, some as adults. There's never been any problems inter-species wise. Intra-species wise, a bit trickier at times.
Might depend on dog breed though. All ours have been GSDs (or half GSDs). We did foster a terrier for about a month, and he couldn't be left alone with the cats. In a previous life we've also had spaniels and border collies mixing with house cats, again with no problem.
