Default New Dog to Resident Cat Introduction

Hi all. I've been volunteering with a local rescue group and doing some training with them. I have been working with a dog that might be getting adopted next week. They are going to be doing a introduction between the resident cat and the rescue dog. She is a 3 y/o lab mix.

My plan was to have her on leash in the house and give both her and the cat plenty of room to feel each other out. If possible, I would try to utilize a baby gate to allow them to smell each other. One concern I have is that the dog has shown some leash frustration with other dogs when on walks. I have had the foster parent working on some loose leash walking exercises.

Do you think this will transfer over to the cat if she is pulling to try to get to it?

How do you prefer to do dog to cat introductions?

Thanks for any and all help!
