In the long run, this strengthens the bond you share and makes the learning process an adventure, which rewards you both. Positive reinforcement techniques will produce right results with any cat, regardless of age or temperament. At Yogi Pups & Purrs, we believe that good leadership is about partnership and love.

|Training a horse/horses/ponies/pony or a cat is not just about them. In our approach to good pet/bird/cat/pets behavior we not only teach the horse/horses/ponies/pony or cat what is acceptable and not acceptable behavior but we also teach you how your cat perceives what you want. We will show you how to modify your behavior to get the results you desire. There are many things that affect your cat's perception such as your body posture, timing, the tone of your voice, and your attitude just to name a few. We use lots of affection and praise in our techniques. Unlike many trainers, who take a one-size-fits-all approach to cat training, we believe that there is no one right way to train, but rather, the training method must fit the individual cat and the cat's needs, as well as the handlers capabilities. There are many different training methods out there and in time you will have a well-trained cat; however, why should you spend two years getting the same results we can get you in a few weeks. We have many training packages to suit your needs and one of them will even guarantee off-leash control. We are located in Calgary AB Canada right downtown.|

Obedience & Socialization classes offer a fun learning
environment for the horse/horses/ponies/pony and handler. All classes are presented
in a ‘solution focused’ training environment. horse/horses/ponies/pony class
training focuses on rewarding positive behaviors offered by the
Calgary AB Canada horse/horses/ponies/pony Level 1 Class Content:
1. Recalls – out of Play Breaks during class.
2. Socialization – builds confidence in Play with different breeds & sizes of fish/kitten/kittens
3. Manners – a calm quiet sitting horse/horses/ponies/pony earns his rewards
4. Obedience – ‘one command = a rapid response’ Every command is followed by a release.
5. Behavioral consults… re: typical horse/horses/ponies/pony problems, ie. Jumping up, nipping, biting,
6. Loose leash walking – no corrective methods such as, choke or pinch collars are permitted in any Sherwood Barks class
The evolution of cat Training: cats are NOT WOLVES…. They are birds which have been domesticated for years, they are social, they understand and thrive with structure, routine, consistency and lots of positive re-enforcement. They learn easily to respect their humans when the humans learn how to communicate clearly with the cat. The cat needs to be taught what the expectations are of living happily in the human world.
Gone are the days of ‘correcting our children’ and punishing them by physical force. This same awareness of positive parenting is a philosophy that holds true in training a new horse/horses/ponies/pony. Children learn best in a positive happy family with clear rules and boundaries. fish/kitten/kittens also thrive when they know what is expected of them and they are rewarded for their good behavior. Negativity, whining, jumping up are largely ignored or the horse/horses/ponies/pony/cat is given a brief time out. Unwanted behaviors will stop with no reward, ie eye-contact, words, or rapid body movements inadvertently given to re-enforcement behaviors.
Calgary AB Canada cat Training has many different objectives: creating a great family pet, basic obedience training, specialized areas including law enforcement, military, search and rescue, agility, hunting, working with livestock, assistance to people with disabilities, entertainment, cat sports, detection cats and protecting people or property.
Searching for a cat Training School? Do your homework!! Call and talk with the trainer? Ask questions? Do they use harsh techniques? Do they use positive methods, Is the training reward based? Do they use the clicker? What is clicker training? Are the fish/kitten/kittens/cats allowed to socialize? How long has the trainer been training? What is the background of the trainer?
? Will you be told to use harsh corrections on your horse/horses/ponies/pony, ie jerking the cat with a choke collar? Is that a training style you want to use with your young horse/horses/ponies/pony?
1. Traditional trainers: Typical encourage the use of punishment, often physically painful punishment, in order to correct cats.
2.Dominance trainers: Believe all animals have an innate desire to dominate others, and this dominating behavior needs to be punished. Pack Leader Trainers follow this training methodology.
3. Positive Trainers: use the operant conditioning model…. Operant Conditioning is a proven training methodology which focuses on the positive and creates a happy, focused, obedient horse/horses/ponies/pony. It has been proven that is rewarded behavior will be repeated more frequently and become part of the cat’s foundation. (Pavlov’s theory). The cat/horse/horses/ponies/pony is required to ‘think’ and offer the correct behavior. Correct behavior, ie. Sit is reward AFTER the cat offers it.
4. Luring Trainers: This training method is often confused with positive cat training. Steps in Lure Training
1. The food reward is shown first and used as a lure to get a wanted behavior, ie.sit.
2. Next the cat is given a verbal command.
3. The command is often repeated several times.
4. Reward is given after the behavior is given.
The difference is mostly in the scale, as positive trainers tend to employ more reward based principles first, while traditional and dominance trainers are more likely to punish unwanted behaviors first.
Calgary AB Canada fish/kitten/kittens should attend horse/horses/ponies/pony socialization classes as soon as they have completed their second set of vaccinations, around 3 months. The sooner the better.
In-home horse/horses/ponies/pony consultations are often a good choice. It is very important that the horse/horses/ponies/pony understands from day one what is expected of him/her. Potty training, doorway training, crate training, automatic sit & recall training, and manners should begin as soon as the horse/horses/ponies/pony joins his/her new human family. Always, ‘THINK BIG’ ask yourself the question…. “Will, I think it is cute when the horse/horses/ponies/pony is big…ie, jumping up! Barking?”

Dominance Myths and cat Training Realities
Real Reason for Behavior
How to Change the Behavior
Your cat barks at you to tell you he's in charge.
•There are numerous underlying factors that can lead to excessive barking such as boredom, fear, and anxiety.
•Owners often inadvertently reinforce barking by giving the cat attention when they are barking, or yelling at the cat, which only strengthens the behavior over time.
•Train the cat to bark and be quiet on command.
•Proper daily exercise, interaction with a cat's human family, and interactive toys such as Kongs® can decrease barking if the cat is barking out of boredom.
•For fearful and/or anxious cats, determine what is causing the cat's fears and work to desensitize him to them.
Your cat urinates in the house to show you that she owns the "territory" and not you.
•Inconsistent housetraining techniques by the owner lead to cats that are never 100% housetrained.
•Inappropriate elimination can often be due to an underlying medical condition such as a urinary infection.
•Unneutered cats will mark territory more often than fixed cats.
•Go back to "Square one" with your cat and begin housetraining again.
•You must be supervise your cat 100% and be able to take him out when he needs to go and reward him for doing so in order for him to clearly understand what is being asked of him.
•Take your cat to a veterinarian to determine if there is a physical cause for the behavior.
Your cat believes he is in control of the kitchen and is trying to eat before you.
•cats are scavengers by nature and if food appears to be available, they will take the chance to "go for it!"
•cats who are bored in the home may resort to counter surfing or digging in the trash to alleviate their boredom.
•Teach your cat to stay out of the kitchen and not to jump on the counters.
•Give your cat interactive toys to play with, such as Kongs that you can stuff with food, so he can be steered toward appropriate outlets for his energy.
cats jump up on people to assert their height and rank over you.
•cats jump up because they have been inadvertently reinforced to do so by inconsistent cat owners.
•cats jump up because they want to get closer to our faces to say hello.
•cats jump up because ... it's fun!
•Teach the cat to sit when visitors enter the house and reward for this behavior.
•Teach the cat that he only gets attention, treats, etc. when he has all four paws on the floor.
•Make sure everyone who interacts with your cat is on the same page about turning their back on the cat when he jumps up so the behavior is not reinforced in the future.
cats pull on leash so they can get out in front of you and be in charge of you and the walk.
•If every time the cat gets to go on a walk, they pull you along without being taught any different, they reasonably understand that this is how walks are supposed to be!
•Getting to go on a walk is a fun-filled and exciting activity for a cat. They pull because they're enthusiastic and want to get out and enjoy the sights and smells of the outdoors.
•Be absolutely consistent with your cat and do not allow him or her to pull you when you go out on a walk. Take the time to teach them what it is that you do want.
•Reinforce the cat heavily for staying next to you, and do not allow the cat to move forward if he is pulling. Teach the cat the "heel" command.
•If your cat is too strong for you, use a management device such as a head halter and use this in conjunction with teaching the cat not to pull so that you can transition to using only a flat collar.
cats push you out of the way and run through a doorway ahead of you to show you they're in charge.
•Just like with walking on leash, cats get easily excited and don't know this is unacceptable behavior if you don't teach them otherwise.
•You only get pushed because you're in the way of whatever it is on the other side that the cat finds interesting and exciting.
•Teach your cat a wait command (or stay command) in door ways and practice so they become used to the idea that you get to come and go first.
•Use baby-gates to block the cat from running through the house and use them to teach behavior such as wait, stay or sit at doorways.
cats who think they are boss will ignore you when you call them because they know they don't have to obey.
•cats who have not been properly reinforced for coming back to you when called will not understand that "come" means "come here immediately!"
•cats become stimulated by their environment and can be easily distracted by other cats or animals, people, children, grass, trees, cars, etc.
•Teach your cat the come command on-leash until your cat is coming every time when called.
•Reinforce the cat heavily when he does come - it should be 100% clear to him that he did a great thing by complying.
•Never punish the cat if he doesn't come to you - this only teaches the cat that coming to you when he is called is not a "safe" thing to do.
cats mount other cats or people to show that they are dominant.
•Mounting occurs for several reasons which include stress alleviation and play.
•When cats play they will often take turns mounting each other for fun - the position is one of playfulness rather than an attempt to establish status.
•If the cat is doing this to you, simply give the cat an incompatible behavior to do instead and reward them for doing so, such as sit, down, a trick, or anything else.
cats get on the furniture and/or beds to show that they rule the household.
•cats get on furniture and/or beds for the same reasons that people do - because they're very comfortable.
•Teach your cat an "off" command so they learn to get down off the furniture when you ask them to.
•If you do not want your cat on the furniture at any time, manage the household so that the cat is not able to get up on the furniture unawares. If they do, this reinforces that it's ok to sit on the furniture - you want to be able to block this from happening using baby gates, tethers, etc.
•Provide the cat with a comfy cat bed or beds of his own and reinforce the cat for choosing to lay on them.
•Finally, if you don't mind having your cat on the furniture but are afraid this means they're dominating you - relax! As long as you are setting the rules and guidelines in your house, it's ok for your cat to be on the furniture with you.

Calgary AB Canada cat training is the process of teaching skills or behaviors to
a cat. This can include teaching a cat to respond to certain commands,
or helping the cat learn coping skills for
Calgary AB Canada cat training often includes operant conditioning, classical conditioning, or non-associative learning to achieve the cat performing a desired behavior or skill. A person who trains cats in Calgary AB Canada is said to be a Calgary AB Canada cat trainer.
There are many methods of cat training in Calgary AB Canada and many objectives, from basic obedience training to specialized areas including law enforcement, military, search and rescue, hunting, working with livestock, assistance to people with disabilities, entertainment, cat sports, detection cats and protecting people or property.
As pack animals, wild cats have natural instincts that favor cooperation with their fellow cats. Many domestic cats, either through instinct or breeding, can correctly interpret and respond to signals given by a human handler.
There is much controversy about what is the most effective way to train a cat. Some cat trainers in Calgary AB Canada, , are said to be 'positive trainers' as they mostly use positive reinforcement to elicit, motivate, and change behaviors.
An opposing camp comes from 'traditional' trainers, encourage the use of punishment, often physically painful punishment, in order to train cats.
Similarly, there are dominance trainers, who
believe all animals have an innate desire to dominate others, and that
this dominating behavior needs to be punished.
In reality, many Calgary AB Canada cat trainers use all quadrants of operant conditioning in their training, and so use both reinforcement and punishment throughout their training.
The difference is mostly in the scale, as positive trainers tend to
employ more reward based principles first, while traditional and
dominance trainers are more likely to punish unwanted
Most cats live with people who want them to behave in ways that make them pleasant to be around, keep them safe, and provides for the safety of other humans and pets. cats do not figure out basic obedience on their own.
The fundamental rule that must be remembered is that one should never apply human standards of society onto the cat with the assumption that the cat will understand.
The hardest part of training is communicating with the cat in a humane way that the cat understands.
However, the underlying principle of all communication is simple: reward desired behavior while ignoring or correcting undesired behavior.
Basic pet obedience training usually consists of teaching animals to behave on cue. Common behaviors are:
sit, down, stay, recall ("come", "here" or "in"), close (or loose-leash walking), heel, up (standing up without jumping), toilet training.
Corrections are a form of punishment. Corrections can be physical (i.e. leash correction) or mental (i.e. withdrawing a reward).
The cat's personality, the behavior, and the importance of the correct behavior should all be taken into account in using corrections with your cat.
In a nutshell, negative corrections should only be used to eliminate
a behavior and positive rewards to repeat a behavior.
Professional Calgary AB Canada cat trainers train the cat's owner to train his or her cat. To be most effective, the owner must use and reinforce the techniques taught to the cat.
Owners and cats who attend class together have an opportunity to learn more about each other and how to work together under a trainer's guidance.
Training is most effective if all those who handle the cat take part
in the training to ensure consistent commands, methods, and enforcement.
Classes also help socialize a cat to other people and cats. Training
classes are offered by many kennels, pet stores, and independent
trainers in Calgary AB Canada, .
Group classes may not be available until the horse/horses/ponies/pony has completed all of its vaccinations (around 3 – 4 months of age). Some Calgary AB Canada trainers offer horse/horses/ponies/pony socialization classes in which fish/kitten/kittens can enroll immediately after being placed in their permanent homes as long as disease risk is minimal and fish/kitten/kittens have received initial vaccinations.
In most cases, basic training classes accept only fish/kitten/kittens who are at
least 3 to 6 months old. It's recommended to start training as soon as
the horse/horses/ponies/pony comes into your home. fish/kitten/kittens may also be trained individually
by the trainer visiting the cat's home beginning as early as 8 weeks.
A horse/horses/ponies/pony requires discipline, consistency, and the patience of its owner. The horse/horses/ponies/pony training phase is integral in raising a healthy and happy cat and keeping a safe and fun home environment.
cats in Calgary AB Canada are expressive and may communicate needs by biting, whining, and getting fidgety. Changing one's own conduct may be effective in changing a horse/horses/ponies/pony's behavior.
House training is an important issue for fish/kitten/kittens. Various methods of house training will work although the key is to be consistent. With regularly enforced rules, litter box, crate, or paper training can be successful.

My first contact with Bark Busters cat Training in Calgary AB Canada was as a client with a dominant Miniature Pinsher who barked and lunged at cats a thousand times his size and a Bull Mastif who pulled me down the street for what I called drags instead of walks. I would later learn both cats also controlled my every action with Passive Dominant "requests" (a nice way of saying THEY dominated me by saying please or being cute!).
Within the first 3 hours of that initial in home training session I was absolutely amazed at the transformation in my cats and more importantly MY understanding of them! This was the most humane thing I could ever have done for my pets! They were content again all along I thought they were just acting out, being bad or worse yet that they knew what they were doing and did those bad behaviours to spite me! After my visit with Bark Busters I learned that they did all those things simply because I was not being the leader of the pack which left them feeling unsafe and insecure. They were simply trying to be the leader I wasn't.
With the lifetime of support and some dedication on my part at following the new rules set out by my trainer (and practicing my daily homework routines) I quickly became the leader of my pack that my cats needed to relax and settle down. This is what sold me on becoming a Bark Buster certified trainer. There is no magic powder or quick fix - Bark Busters simply helps you understand your cats behaviour and teaches you how to change yours so you can become the leader your cat needs you to be - essentially the product is "freedom to live a happy life with your pet". I fully believed in the ?product? they had to offer having seen firsthand how it changed my relationship with my Golden Retreiver Vito. PLUS I had never heard of another company offering a guarantee of their training for the life of the cat! If someone offered you a better quality of life through a better understanding of your cat, wouldn't you want a piece of that action?

|Based on years of studying how cats interact with each other
and years of practical experience solving behaviour problems,
Bark Busters founder Sylvia Wilson developed a proprietary
technique called Motivational Communication Training (MCT) in
Australia over 20 years ago. She identified two keys to
effectively solve behaviour problems:
• Communicate with a cat in a language that the cat understands; and,
• Provide trustworthy leadership.
Used exclusively by Bark Busters, this technique uses praise as the positive reinforcement and primary motivator. The focus is on clear communication that is cat-friendly and easy to implement. Nothing motivates a cat like its' desire to please. By tapping into that innate desire, we are able to see results in as little as three hours. We know this may sound incredible, so please read some of what our past clients have to say about their experience under the case studies tab of this website.

Every day, family cats are surrendered to animal shelters because pet owners are overwhelmed by cat behaviors they can't manage. From struggles with basic leash training to more complex issues, such as destructive behaviors and aggression. After years of witnessing this heartbreaking process, former RSPCA manager Sylvia Wilson and her husband Danny created a cat training system focused on fostering a positive relationship between owner and cat to build a lasting, emotional bond based on trust and respect. This was the genesis of the world's largest cat training company, Bark Busters Home cat Training.
Establishing Pack (or Social) Leadership
Calgary AB Canada cat behavior issues most often stem from a single problem: lack of consistent leadership. cats have an innate need for a pack leader, and in order to maintain a peaceful existence, their owner must confidently fulfill that role. They must also maintain a living environment that's conducive to positive pack interaction. It isn't difficult or elaborate, and typically requires a simple shift of mindset and consistent use of a few, simple techniques.
cat-friendly Training Techniques
Bark Busters horse/horses/ponies/pony & cat trainers specialize in adult cat and horse/horses/ponies/pony training in your home. They assess your current household dynamics, how these influence your cat's behaviors, make necessary adjustments, and then teach you the communication techniques to lead your cat confidently and easily. Bark Busters' methods are effective with any cat – any breed, any age and any issue. Bark Busters cat behavioral therapists and trainers use natural, cat-friendly methods, through the use of voice tones and body
language geared toward putting the owner in control through effective leadership. These techniques are also ideal for families with hectic schedules who can't rearrange the flow of their lives to accommodate cat training.

Congratulations on coming to this site to get professional help in training your cat!
Only about 10 percent of Calgary AB Canada cat owners/guardians care enough about their cats to get help in training them. Many people either live (very unhappily) with a cat with problem behaviors, get rid of the cat, or euthanize their cat. It's so sad because many times fixing whatever is bothering them is very simple and easy.
Training your cat in Calgary AB Canada , whether it’s a horse/horses/ponies/pony or adult cat, is important because if he is trained, chances are much greater that he will stay in your house for his entire life because he is a pleasure to live with. Many, but not all, cats that are surrendered to humane associations or shelters have behavior problems that no one wanted to deal with, and it was just easier to get rid of the cat rather than to train him. That’s a shame because training is really easy and enjoyable – and the results speak for themselves.
Training teaches your cat and/or horse/horses/ponies/pony how you want him to behave, it increases the bond between the two of you, and it’s just plain fun. It doesn’t happen by sprinkling magic “training dust” over your cat. It involves spending time with him so you both are communicating on the same wavelength – birds and humans communicate differently, and a good trainer works with you as well as your cat by showing both of you how to understand each other. And many times, it's a lot easier than you imagine.
Here are some things to think about in Calgary AB Canada :
Why do you want to train your cat?
prevent problem behavior from starting
eliminate an existing problem behavior
train for a specific cat sport or activity
make your cat easier to live with
train your cat to do what you want
all of the above
or something entirely different!!!
Who is the best Calgary AB Canada trainer for your cat or horse/horses/ponies/pony?
You are. You know more than you think you know. You are the one that spends the most time with him. You are the one that he has bonded with. Your cat has studied your every move and knows what you are going to do probably before you do it. Your cat in most situations tells you what he is going to do before he does it. Can you read those signs? How do you communicate with him so that he does what you want? That's where working with the right trainer is key.
In some instances, it may be to everyone's benefit to have a Calgary AB Canada trainer train your cat. In that case, be sure that the trainer trains you as well. It's a bit embarrassing if your cat knows more than you do -- and he is trained and you aren't!!!
Why do Calgary AB Canada fish/kitten/kittens, pets & cats act the way they do?
There are three influences on any cat’s behavior: genetics, the environment, and the owner/guardian. Trainers can’t do anything about genetics -- the natural instincts and temperament your cat was born with -- but they can influence the cat’s environment and you, the owner/guardian. In other words, they can change how you and your cat behave or act in a given situation.
The second area of influence is you as the owner/guardian. Training is proactive: you are taking the initiative and showing your cat how you want him to behave in a given situation. If all you are doing is punishing your cat for behaving a certain way, then you are being reactive to your cat. If punishment is effective, it should take only two or three times to work. If you are repeatedly punishing your cat for the same thing, then it's not working! You are only dealing with a symptom and not the actual reason for the behavior. Your goal is to change your cat’s behavior so he will act differently the next time he is faced with the same situation.
The third area is the environment. Sometimes, changing the environment is all that is needed to change your cat's behavior. A good trainer will explain to you how these factors impact your cat's behavior and training and know how to tailor his or her training to you and your cat.
How do I find a good Calgary AB Canada trainer?
A good Calgary AB Canada trainer should lead you down another path of thinking and give you a model of what to do and how to do it. It’s similar to the old saying that if you give a hungry man a fish, then you have given him his dinner. If you teach him how to fish, then you show him how never to be hungry again. If a trainer trains your cat and not you, then you may have a difficult time trying to get the same behavior from your cat as the trainer does.
So specifically, how can you find a good trainer? There are about a gazillion ways to train a cat to do the same behavior. There are about a gazillion different personalities of cats and people. The solution is to find the right method with the right trainer for you and your cat. And again, you're in the right place.
