I have worked with cats on: eliminating in inappropriate places, scratching people and/or furniture, biting, spraying, introducing another family member (dog, cat, baby, partner), retraining them to become indoor only, maintaining proper diet & exercise, giving proper mental stimulation, yowling/meowing excessively, moving: relaxation tips for your cat, building comfort with a carrier, feeding kittens through a bottle, caring for strays and educating on Trap-Neuter-Return, socializing your kitten, selecting the right cat or kitten for you and your family, walking your cat on leash. I now exclusively work with your puppy starting at 4-6 months and helping them continue to grow and learn as they age through and stay in my program. I would love to work with you & your family!
