We've all heard about training and obedience classes for puppies, but what about our feline friends? Contrary to popular belief, it is just as important for kittens to be properly socialised and trained as it is for puppies. Kitten Kindy® is a perfect way to get your kitten on the right track to becoming a happy and well-adjusted member of the family. We help teach positive behaviours and thereby preventing potential unwanted behaviours later on in life, while aiming to establish a close relationship between owner and kitten.
Our kitten classes have been developed by our experienced team and are based on the Kitten Kindy® classes created by leading veterinary behaviourist Dr. Kersti Seksel. The principle aims of our classes are the same;
Kittens develop quickly so start their journey when they are most impressionable and open to teaching, training and bonding. Through using only positive reward-based training methods, our experienced team will cover the kitten basics while also teaching you a few tricks along the way like teaching them how to sit and come when called - and yes, we're still talking about a class for kittens here not puppies! We will also guide owners through behavior management, and prevention of unwanted or problem behaviours and give additional support over the phone and email.
Although the classes will benefit every feline family member, they are especially important for those who were removed from their mother and litter-mates early on and so have never had the opportunity to learn important social skills.
Do you have an older kitten or cat and want more information about how to better care for them and prevent future unwanted behaviours? Anyone is welcome to attend without their cat - please contact us to find out how we can help you!
