Cement Your Bond And Ensure A Peaceful Household
Cats have only been domesticated relatively recently. This first domestication happened in Turkey about 7,000 years ago and the second, much better known, in Egypt about 4,000 years ago. Dogs beat that by at least 10,000 years. Moreover, cats, unlike dogs, are solitary animals so have a more limited way of interacting with humans.
Cats, like any other animal, are not only amenable to training using positive reinforcement, they really enjoy it.
Why Should I Train My Cat?
Cats have adapted well to living with humans but need a little help sometimes. Indoor cats need to learn how to use a litter tray and outdoor cats may need to learn how to use cat flap. Long-haired cats need regular grooming and older cats may need help as they find it harder to reach some spots as they groom themselves.
Cats are territorial, so many owners struggle to get their cat to leave home to visit the vet. Training can help from getting your cat used to a carrier to being happy being handled by a groomer or vet. They will thank you for it too!
It’s important to provide indoor cats with enrichment, and training can help to expand their repertoire of games and make interaction more varied and fun for you.
We recommend starting with a 1 hour session at £100 followed by 30 minute sessions at £50 per session.
