Description

Potty problems? Inter-cat aggression? Antisocial behavior? Many people think that these are part of a cat's nature or just something they need to accept. It turns out that these and most cat behavior issues can be prevented with early socialization and training. A few techniques applied early on can change the course of a kitten's life. Attendees will: 1) Understand the sensitive period of socialization -- what it is, why it's important, and how appropriate experiences during this time can help you create a friendly, interactive, and sociable cat. 2) Learn how to desensitize and countercondition cats so they enjoy toenail trims, injections, and any handling procedure making treatments at home or in the hospital are a breeze. 3) Train cats simple but essential tricks such as sit, come, and touch their nose to a target. These tricks can be used to replace naughty behaviors. 4) Identify the components necessary for a successful kitten socialization program.
