The good news: It isn’t true! Though a cat needs a different approach to training than a dog does, she can learn a lot from a Pet Parent who guides her in a way that will be effective for her unique feline mind.

The articles in this guide will give you helpful pointers on shaping your cat’s behaviors so you can both better understand each other!
