Description

Dog owners know that dogs can be trained, but the idea of training rarely crosses cat owners’ minds.

But as bestselling anthrozoologist John Bradshaw and cat expert Sarah Ellis show, not only can cats be trained, but they absolutely should be to ensure a happy and healthy relationship between pet and owner. Once we comprehend cats’ emotions and needs, we can train them to overcome their natural fears and anxieties.

Full of training tips and exercises for nearly every scenario — from introducing your cat to a new baby to teaching cats to live alongside dogs to helping cats deal with visits to the vet — The Trainable Cat is an essential manual for cat owners everywhere.

    The Trainable Cat gives a detailed overview of all you need to know about the behavior of cats. It teaches you countless ways to train your cat to be more comfortable with whatever may cause it stress, and to behave in a way that is beneficial for both human and cat. Each chapter reviews one or two specific behaviors, such as making your cat comfortable in a cat carrier or teaching your cat to come when outside, and goes through dozens of ways to train the behavior with exceptions for all the unique cat personalities out there. This book does a good job combing through the evolutionary and behavioral differences between cats and dogs. As someone with a certification in dog training, I was surprised to find how many training techniques that would work for dogs, would be inefficient or even detrimental to use on a cat. I especially enjoyed all the evolutionary descriptions on why cats do what they do, and why it is important to provide for your cat's instinctual needs.
