Customer Question

How long does it usually take for an established 9 yr old cat to get along with a newly introduced 3yr old dog ? It has been two weeks and they still don't like each other. I have a baby gate up so the cat has one section of the house and the dog has the other but they still grawl and hiss at one another.
