This guide to cat training includes:
  • A progressive approach—Start small with essential commands and practical skills that serve as a foundation for additional training, solving behavioral problems, and bonding through play.
  • Step-by-step instructions—Find clear directions that break down each cat training lesson into small steps so both you and your cat feel confident and comfortable.
  • Cat communication basics—Learn what your cat is telling you through their body language, facial expressions, and vocalizations, and how their unique traits require training them differently than other animals.

Build a stronger connection and improve your cat's behavior with this positive approach to cat training.
