Next Level Feline: Leash Train Your Cat for More Fun, Less Stress

leash train your catDogs and cats are like apples and oranges, but they do have some things in common. While it may seem like a cat would never, ever enjoy walking down the street at the other end of leash (attached to a harness, no less), it may be time to shift our collective perceptions. To be sure, creating the opportunity and encouraging your cat to embrace this activity isn’t without its challenges or complications. However, when you decide to properly leash train your cat, the results are highly beneficial.

Exercise in Futility?

People have a widespread misunderstanding that felines detest walking on-leash, but this could be fed by the perception that people walking cats around the neighborhood could be “overdoing” it a bit. Cats are independent creatures, right? They couldn’t possibly be trained to wear a harness and walk on a leash. Wrong!

Simple Steps for Success

Not only can we train cats using positive reinforcement (and a lot of patience), but when you leash train your cat, you build confidence, create socialization opportunities, and reduce stress when traveling together.
