Your Guide


Julie, The Cat Teacher

My mission is to help people enrich their cats' lives with clicker training. I am a Certified Applied Animal Behaviourist, and I have been training animals for more than a decade. I love to break complex behaviours into tiny achievable steps and show people how rewarding it is to train their cat. When I'm not busy teaching Cat School students, you can find me spending time training my full-time live-in student, a black cat named Jones.
