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.
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!
You know the truth – even though cats are independent spirits, they are also are our teammates. As long as we are smart and patient trainers, we can achieve exceptional results.
The Trick Cat Title validates your training skills and proves that you and your cat are an unbeatable team.
The trick cat title makes it easy for you to spread the message and share the joy of positive-based cat training.
The Trick Cat Title honors your commitment to enriching your cat's life with training. It celebrates you for building a rewarding relationship with your cat one click at a time.
Record each trick behavior in a separate video clip, no longer than 30 seconds each. Upload each video to a video sharing/hosting service (ie: YouTube, Vimeo, Google Photos), put the trick in the title of the video. Videos can either be shared individually or as a single link to a collection of videos. Each trick must be recorded separately.
After purchasing the title you will receive an email with the submission form.
Using the form provided via email, submit the links to your recorded skills.
Anyone who trains their cat with positive methods can apply. Participants can learn from our Youtube channel, our program or any other clicker training resource.
Listed above, and available in PDF, are 30 behaviors with clarifying instructions on how the skill should be performed. Fifteen of the 30 skills are needed to qualify for your cat's Novice title.
Successful applications will receive an iron on patch, a PDF certificate, and bragging rights for your cat to all their feline friends by being listed on our webpage of Title Holders. You'll also have the option to be tagged on Cat School's social media channels.
We strive to confirm titles within 5 business days, if not sooner, depending on volume of submissions.
While we encourage you to use food to teach the different tricks, the final recording of the tricks must not involve food to get the trick (luring), but we encourage you to reward your cat after each skill.
We encourage you to have taught all behaviours prior to purchasing the title, in order for you to promptly submit your videos within 24 - 48 hours of having purchased the title.
Yes, there will be more advanced title levels to come. Each title level must be achieved before applying for the next level.
