WE OFFER UNIQUE TRAINING SERVICES FOR CATS

Cat Harness and Leash Training: Your clever feline companion might be slightly perplexed by having a harness placed on them in the first few instances. However, with patience, perseverance, and training, we will get your cat accustomed and excited to go outdoors and roll in the sand, grass, and dirt. Cat Harness and leash walking are not suitable for every cat; forcing an anxious or skittish cat to walk on a leash can exacerbate their anxiety.

Clicker Training: Clicker training is an excellent way to teach your dog or cat a new cue or behaviour. It’s also a wonderful tool for modifying undesired cat behaviours.

Target Training: Targeting is teaching your dog or cat to touch a part of their body, such as a paw or nose, to a specific object. A target stick is easy to use and can help owners teach their dog/cat anything from simple cues to complicated tricks.

Cat Tricks: We can train your cat to perform many tricks, which can help reduce fear, anxiety, and frustration. Some cats are food—or play-driven and can be easily clicker-trained. Once we determine their most desirable treat or motivation, we start with weekly or monthly sessions and make it a fun experience for you both.

Cooperative Cat Training: By training our cats to cooperate willingly in veterinary care, we can significantly reduce stress for our cats, us, and the health care team. This training includes teaching your cat to undergo veterinary or grooming procedures, voluntary carrier training, taking medication, wearing a muzzle, clipping their nails, stepping on and off scales, receiving ear and eye medication, and being wrapped in a towel. These are just a few examples of how training can positively impact our cats’ veterinary experience.

Cat Nail Clipping: Trimming nails can be stressful for both owner and cat. Coaching owners and their cats to accept nail clipping fear-free will improve the human-cat bond and reduce the destruction of owner belongings and injury to people and household pets. Learn how to train your kitten or cat to Love nail trimming without ruining your relationship!

Cat to Carrier: Cats are masters of hiding pain and disease and require regular husbandry care, grooming, and vet check-ups. Cat to carrier training aims for your cat to associate the carrier with a positive, happy encounter and enter/exit the carrier voluntarily. Reducing travel stress means you and your cat will have a stress-free experience and get the health care they need for countless years.

Cat Agility Training: Cat agility is a fun sport or hobby where owners entice competent cats through timed obstacle courses. Agility is a great way to play, exercise, and improve your relationship with your cat companion.
