It is common knowledge that dogs and cats do not make good companions, and this is because dogs tend to chase smaller animals and cats tend to run away from larger animals, which is why there are many expressions such as: “they get along with the dog and the cat”.

Can a dog and a cat live together in the same house?

There are many studies that show that a dog and a cat can live together in the same house without any problem, especially when the dog and the cat have known each other since they were very young, as the predisposition to play and socialise at this age is very good!

How to get a dog and a cat to get along?

The first thing you should do is to make a good presentation to avoid maximum problems. The meeting should take place in a large space where there are not too many objects. During the first few meetings it is recommended to keep them apart, but if possible they should be able to see each other.

It is advisable to have a cushion or stuffed animal with the smell of the other to see how they are reacting. If the reaction has been correct and they are calm, we are probably going to be lucky! The next thing you have to do before approaching them face to face is to try to tire them out separately with games, going out in the street, etc… so that they are much more receptive when they meet.

It is very important that you are also very calm, as this is what you will transmit to your pets. Before the meeting, try to have help and make sure that both the dog and the cat have a collar so that they can be rectified in case the meeting gets complicated.


It is very important that you do not force them to get to know each other or to be together if you see that it is not the right moment, each breed of dog and cat is different and all meetings are not the same, some will last longer than others, you have to be very patient and try to get to know each other better little by little.
