Change Unwanted Cat Behaviors. Does Punishment Work? What are Effective Alternatives?

with Marilyn Krieger

Join Marilyn Krieger for this exciting webinar on cat behavior. Many people resort to squirt bottles, cans that hiss, mats that shock, yelling, force and (positive) punishment in their efforts to stop unwanted cat behaviors.

Participants will learn whether these techniques work to change unacceptable behaviors and the common side effects of them. They will also learn effective, force-free methods for behavior change. In addition, the webinar will cover implementing these techniques to change 2-3 common cat behavior challenges.
