Foundation Behaviors Are Going to the Cats!

With Jacqueline Munera

Millions of cats make their homes in America, frequently as indoor-only residents. While this is generally much safer for the cats than an outdoor lifestyle, their human families often need help dealing with behavior that is natural for cats, but inconvenient to those of us that are not cats. The great news is that domestic cats can easily be taught behaviors that make indoor cohabitation less stressful and more fun! This presentation will explain why cats should be taught five important foundation behaviors commonly taught to dogs. The presentation will cover the basics of teaching: Name Game, Recall, Go to Place, Nose target/follow, and On/Off Switch (impulse control). These five trained behaviors can be part of a modification plan for a wide variety of problem situations. Cat and dog not getting along? Cat ambushing you when you walk by? Don’t worry, the foundation skills for cats webinar is here!

Learning Objectives:

  • A) Learn WHY cats should be taught foundation behavior skills
  • B) Learn how to train the following behaviors a. Name Game b. Recall c. Go to Place d. Nose target/follow e. On/Off Switch (impulse control)
