Not Fighting Like Cats and Dogs
her first walk
Dogs and cats can peacefully co-exist!
Here's my personal story... A friend adopted a kitten
that frightened my dog, Kompis. Kompis had been attacked a few
months earlier by a small gray kitten, so when she first saw Astro,
Kompis shook uncontrollably and even started to have a bowel movement.
Kompis would not move or look at the kitten for the first 10 minutes.
The kitten kept a safe distance, too. Once Kompis stopped being
frozen with fear and actually took a few steps, Beverly called it
quits for that session.
evening, Astro's new mom brought her over for a visit. Beverly
worked her magic and, within one hour, had Kompis and the kitten
laying next to each other, relaxing!

The Pooch Coach trained Astro to come, sit, shake paws and more!
next day, The Pooch Coach took them both to the park...
the kitten's second visit, Kompis and Astro were officially friends!
They cuddled on the couch together and started playing and running
around the house chasing each other and having a blast.
your furry friends to love and respect each other.
The Pooch Coach tells her clients to expect dogs and cats to adjust to each
other in about 2 months. It takes them that long to build trust
and figure out how the other species interacts and communicates.
The younger the cat/kitten, the better for the quickest and best
possible adjustment. Puppies and dogs of all ages can learn to peacefully
- and hopefully playfully - co-exist with their feline housemates.
With help from a good behaviorist, you can speed up this process
greatly, as you have seen above.
that you're going to have to train your cat(s) as well as your dog.
Cats also need to learn to trust the trained dog, and they need
to learn to not actively tease (torture :-) ) your dog. As in all
relationships, it is a 2 way street!
