Training Your Cat

Contrary to popular belief, cats are trainable. You can teach them useful behaviors as well as novelty tricks. You can even train them to compete in agility tournaments. Cats respond to positive reinforcement, not negative punishment. Cats are also less instinctively driven to work in partnership with their human companions. Behavioral issues aren’t uncommon, but with patience and perseverance, behavior can be changed. Behavior issues that pop up suddenly could be an indication of discomfort or pain so please contact your vet for a wellness check. Animals can’t tell us what is wrong so they show us in ways that make us think they are being naughty, when in fact it’s a medical issue. If you have any questions about your cat, please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to give you some tips and advice to help you with your furry friend. Here are some links to articles that can assist with basic training and other behavior issues that may arise: Cat Behavior Problems: Prevention Cat Declawing: The Price of Convenience Cat Not Using Litter Box: Causes and Solutions Common Cat Behaviors & How to Train Your Cat How to Teach a Cat Tricks How to Train a Cat from Purina Introducing a New Cat Leash Training Your Cat from the Anti-Cruelty Society Training Your Cat With Treats and Praise from Humane Society Train Your Cat To Go To A Place With Clicker Training from Cat School
