Julie, The Cat Teacher

My mission is to help people enrich their cats' lives with clicker training. I am an Associate Certified Applied Animal Behaviourist (ACAAB), 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 work with their cat. My assistant in the videos is a black cat named Jones, who has a full scholarship to Cat School.

About this Course

In this course, I will guide you through the process of improving your cat's response to nail trims. With some patience, consistency, and delicious treats, your cat will learn to be comfortable having their paws handled and their nails clipped.

This course includes:

  • Four weeks of exercises.
  • Access to the course for a minimum of one-year.
  • Unlimited email support from Julie.

Weekly goals include:

  • Week 1: Change your cat's emotional response to the clippers or tool that you are using.
  • Week 2: Establish the baseline for your cat's level of comfortability at being handled and start to extend this to other parts of their body.
  • Week 3: Condition your cat to accept paw touches and holds.
  • Week 4: Condition your cat to be comfortable with nail trims.

Please Note:

The goal of any good behaviour modification plan is to make progress. There is no timeline for achieving stress-free nail trims. Each cat is unique, and their speed of learning will depend on their initial level of fear and how often your practice.
