Friends bringing dog

My friend who lives pretty far away is coming for a visit. She is going to bring her 1 year old shnauzer(sp) with her. I'm not sure how my cat is going to take to this. We have a 1 year old German Short Hair Pointer who is with Kahn all the time. My Mom brought her dog over once but only for a few mins. When they met Kahn puffed up huge but really didnt do much. My friend will be spending the night and it will be more than a few second meeting. Any tips or advice would be great.

If the dog is lose in the house keep a leash on it incase a fight or chase erupts ~ that way you can get to him right away~ muzzles never hurt either esp if you dont know if this dog is kitty friendly or doggie friendly.

That way they can be loose, with you around, with mussle on. I know they do that with greyhounds when breaking them into a home with kitties or other dogs.

Hopefully it will all work out smoothly

I've met the dog before. She's come over to our house, but before you had my fur-baby. Just my husbands dog and she was really shy around him. But our dog is huge and she is just a minature shnauzer. My friend already said she would bring a crate for him plus our dog has a crate because we have to crate him while we are gone or he will chew EVERYTHING. Thanks for all the advice
