How To Train your cat

Is Your Cat Living Their Best Life?

Are you worried that your indoor cat may be bored?

Do you find yourself spending lots of money on food puzzles and toys that don’t occupy your cat for very long?

Seeing your cat spend the whole day on the couch can create a feeling of guilt — we all want to have the best relationship with our cat, and that means giving them the most enriched life possible. Well-intended cat “experts” will tell you that all you need to do is play more with your cat, but many cats are not that interested in toys. If your house is a graveyard of 'dead' cat toys, you can probably relate.


Not All Cats Sleep All Day

Many people say that cats are easy pets and that they don’t need much attention.

And training? No way! Cats train us, and we don’t train them! Right?


Maybe your cat is more energetic and demanding of your attention. Plus, there are some behavioural challenges you may want to improve, but google searches always lead you to cruel and ineffective methods like spray bottles and sticky tape.

There has to be a better way!


How To Train Your Cat

The Struggle Is Real

Many cats exhibit problem behaviours related to boredom, such as biting and inappropriate scratching. These behaviours result in frustrated owners and a weakening of the cat–human bond.

Furthermore, many cat owners get caught in the "I can't train a cat misconception," often accepting their cat's problem behaviours as unsolvable.

It's Time To Bust The Myth That
Cats Aren't Trainable

Learning new skills and behaviours is a form of enrichment and activity.

Training solves many problem behaviours that frustrate cat owners.

Every cat can learn. No cat is too old or too young to learn.

Training a cat isn't hard, especially when you have someone to show you how it's done.

It only takes a few minutes a day to enrich your cat's life with training.

Get To Know Your Teachers

Hi, I'm Julie, the cat teacher, and this is my assistant, Jones. Five years ago, Jones entered my life and changed everything I thought I knew about cats. At that time, I was working as a dog trainer and training my dogs in the evening. It didn't take long for Jones to notice that the dogs were participating eagerly in their training time — getting treats and attention, and he wanted in on the action. Suddenly, I had a new student that quickly demonstrated his eagerness and ability to learn. I shared our fist bump tutorial on Instagram and saw so many cats having fun learning. It became my mission to pass on the message that cats love clicker training, and that training strengthens the cat–human bond.

I hold the Associate Certified Applied Animal Behaviourist (ACAAB) designation, your assurance that I will always present the most progressive training methods. Jones and I can't wait to help you learn!
