    Fantastic course

    It’s great, we are progressing much faster than I expected and we are bonding too. Before the course I was quite stuck and not knowing how to proceed, now it all seems so simple. She is already wearing the harness ok and will be ready to try outside soon. It’s a bargain price too and I love seeing the other participants messages and progress videos.

    Super easy and straight forward.

    I definitely like using this in tandem with the normal training, but only once our kitty was used to the harness. I think it has clear guidelines and is super clear on ways to correct mistakes

    The best way to do it

    I imagine if I just tried to do this on my onw it would have been a total disaster. I feel more confident having Julie the cat teacher supporting me through the process! thanks Julie!

    Great training, as always!

    We are taking our time with this new behavior, slow and steady. I think it will be successful, though, as they are not afraid of the kitty holster harness vests, and are eager when they see them come out with the treats!

    Thoughtfully constructed training and impeccable support from Julie!

    Cat school opened my eyes to so many aspects of training cats - food selection, body language, the importance of taking a step back and staying under the cat's threshold; I've learned a lot! I've been surprised with the efficacy of the program! Nora (my intelligent, restless kitten) seems to understand what I'm asking of her and I feel like we're communicating more effectively. I'm more in tune with her body language and she will do anything for a treat and is a willing participant! Julie's support has been timely and thorough. She helps me decide when to move on to the next step of training and helps me adjust and tailor my training to Nora. I'm so glad I signed up for this!
