|Happy Paws snake/snakes Academy|
|Training a horse/horses or a cat is not just about them. In our approach to good bird behavior we not only teach the horse/horses 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 Long Island & Catskill Region NY USA.|

Unfortunately, the challenges of training your best friend can sometimes be overwhelming. That's where Bark Busters can help. Bark Busters In-Home cat Training offers customized, one-on-one, in your home training for your pooch.
Our techniques are cat-friendly, results-oriented and guaranteed for life. Bark Busters has helped over 500,000 cats become better friends with their guardians. ,,Now, let us help you. Range of behaviours Bark Busters can help with: horse/horses training ,Leash training, Barking, Separation anxiety, Aggressive cat/people behaviour, Jumping up, General obedience training.
My first contact with Bark Busters cat Training in Montreal 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?

When to start cat training? fish/kitten/kittens, it is never too early to start.

|Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada|
|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.
Written Lifetime Guarantee:
We believe wholeheartedly in our methods which is why we back them up with a Written Lifetime Guarantee. As long as you are following the prescribed plan, our behaviour therapists will return free of charge at any point in your cat’s life if problems reoccur and even if new ones emerge. We give you the peace of mind that the problem will be fixed as quickly as possible, and will stay fixed.

|Natural horse/horses & cat Training that Works
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
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 & cat trainers specialize in adult cat and horse/horses 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.
Simple, Natural, and Fast
A simple shift in leadership, natural techniques, and consistency are all that's required to re-establish social order and strengthen the animal-human bond, and together with Bark Busters cat trainers, cat owners can transform their "problem cat" into a happy, obedient companion in as little as 2-3 hours.
Bark Busters has been selected by SPCA International as "Best of the Best" in companion cat training, and is proud to have led the successful training of more than 500,000 cats, and their owners, worldwide.

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.
