Cats and dogs

Some people are dog persons, some people are cat persons. But if you love both dogs and cats there are some things you need to know about introducing your dog to the new pet cat.

Some dogs live just fine with cats; other dogs simply cannot stand cats. That’s why you need the help of another person when you introduce the two pets, one to mediate if necessary.

The dog should be held on a loose lead. One person should watch the dog’s body language and the other should watch the cat’s. If the cat is not acting violently (raising his back, hissing) toward the dog, he can be allowed to move around freely. The dog should be rewarded if he ignores the cat.
