Kitten Training and Behavior
Did you know you can teach your kitten to respond to basic cues and walk on a leash? Positive reinforcement works to encourage the behavior you want (such as only scratching the post you've provided) and discourages behavior that's not desirable (like scratching your sofa). This the best time to get your kitten used to all types of handling. It ensures they’ll be friendly, well-adjusted members of the family.
Nirvana Tails Training
All private training services begin with an initial consultation. (See below for group training options.) When you schedule your initial consultation, you’ll receive a form to detail you pet’s history so our time together will be as beneficial as possible.
During the 90-minute session we’ll review a training plan based on your pet and your individual situation. As part of the assessment, I’ll spend some time interacting with your kitten. At the end of the session, I’ll outline which service package will best meet your needs to achieve your goals.
Individualized training will be tailored specifically for your pet. All sessions after the initial consultation will be 60 minutes.
Initial consultation (90 minutes): $260
One hour: $175
Virtual (online) training:
Initial Consultation: $240
Hourly rate: $160
All training sessions are available at a discount in multi-session packages (for coaching) or by the week (for day training).

Here are some of the most common.
Mary is wonderful to work with! She was very responsive and really listened to what we needed to ease into the transition of getting new kittens. I have two boys who were anxious and excited to learn how to care for their kittens. Not only was Mary patient with them (and their short attention spans) but she made it FUN to learn about how to care for our new kittens. I highly recommend working with Mary, she is so knowledgeable and down to earth and is a pleasure to work with.
