                            Behavioral Challenges: Managing Ongoing Issues

                                                                $250*

 If your cat is already displaying  behavioral problems, don’t give up!  I can

  help with these, too. It’s very challenging for both you  and your cat, but

  there are things we can do to make the situation better for everyone. I can

  help you with behavioral challenges such as:

  • Over-grooming

  • Excessive vocalizations

  • Furniture scratching

  • Elimination in inappropriate areas

  • Aggression: Intercat and towards humans

 

This package includes: A 1-2 hour in-home or virtual meeting, personalized action plan,

two months of support via email, and one 30min virtual or phone check-in.

               

           Kitten Kindergarten: Setting You and Your Kitten up For Success

                                              $300*
 A new kitten is about as fun as it gets; everybody loves playing with

 kittens! More than most people realize, this early part of a cat’s life plays

 a crucial role in later development. If a kitten is not socialized properly, it

 could lead to behavioral problems down the road. You will learn exactly what

 to do and what not to do with kittens so they end up being happy, well adjusted,

 loving cats who will enjoy your company for the rest of their lives.

 

This package includes: Four one-hour in-home  or virtual meeting, an intro to clicker

training, clicker, skills  check list, and one month of support via email.

 


            Clicker Training: Managing Your Ongoing Relationship with Your Cat

                                            $200*
 Clicker training is an incredibly effective tool that can help with some

 of the problems listed above. While it can also be extremely entertaining

 to teach your cat how to “High Five,” there’s a more serious and more

 rewarding aspect to the training. You will learn methods and the

 behavioral science behind them, so that you, in turn, can confidently

 use clicker training with your cat.

 

This package includes: Clicker; three in-home or virtual private lessons;  written

training instructions,  and one month of support via email after last lesson.

     behavior issues, aggression, or anyone that would like additional support.
