Cat Behaviour & Training
Expert behaviour change for you and your cat
Yes! Cats can be trained! Cats can learn just as many things as dogs – and it’s very good for their mental health and enriching to learn new behaviours. Impress your friends the next time they come around.
Jade will visit you and your cat in your home, take a full functional analysis on environment, management, lifestyle and discuss problems you are experiencing. She will work with you to create a behaviour program, tailored to suit your individual circumstances.
The initial consultation takes anywhere up to 2 hours. Your sessions will include advice and practical training with you and your cat, a full written behaviour report (time included) including any management and customised training programs.
Initial behaviour consult – $300
(allow 60-90 minutes)
Follow up session – $140 per hour
****Currently sessions are online only (Zoom or Skype) due to Covid-19.****
Travel expenses based on mileage are applicable for in-home visits outside of the Yass Valley and Canberra region. Due to an increase in no-shows during the time of COVID, half of the consult fee will be due at time of booking. Thank you for your consideration of other pet carers who would like that appointment time.

Keeping cats happy inside
Advice on environmental set-ups for a thriving indoor cat. Safe and entertained.
“We were at our wits end with our 10 month old kitten. Thinking we would have to re-home her, we reached out to Jade and in three sessions our kitten has lost her anxiety, stopped meowing constantly and has been trained to sit and station.
Thank you so much for helping our family! It’s amazing how much you can teach cats.”
