Cat Training Handouts and Links

Crate Training Your Cat (Teach Your Cat to Love the Crate) Teach your cat to approach and enter their crate. The technique discussed is passive, meaning your cat makes the choice and should never be forced. The goal is to have the cat realize that good things happen when it is in the crate; this process is called desensitization (becoming more comfortable with the carrier) and counter conditioning (changing the emotional response from fear to comfort). 

If you would like to clicker train your cat to go into a carrier, follow this link to a wonderful video showing how to take a fearful cat and train it to enjoy being in the carrier.
