950 - Workshop: How To Train Your Cat

Many people believe that cats cannot be trained. They CAN be. Cats actually respond well to positive reinforcement (usually their favorite treat or being scratched in their favorite spot). The benefits of training your cat go far beyond learning how to do a trick.  We’ll teach you how to communicate with your cat and provide mental/psychological stimulation for them. The best part about training your cat, is that it teaches you both how to communicate with each other, which improves the relationship between you.   In addition, some of you may wish to train your cat not to wake you up in the morning, or some of you do not appreciate when they jump on the dinner table – we can help teach you how to use positive reinforcement techniques to train away some of these unwanted behaviors or behavioral challenges. This is an online Zoom class.  This is a 1 and 1/2  hour class.  $20
