Harness Training Guide
Take the First Leap to Adventure Cat Success with These Easy to Follow Steps
Every day, we see dogs out for walks with their owners, but how often do you see a cat on leash? We dare you to ask "why not?" and train your cat to wear a harness and walk confidently on a leash. It's fun, and a great way to bond with your cat!
Harness training is a great way for your cat to safely explore the outdoors! They can soak up the sun and navigate through the grass, looking at birds and small critters. Harness training is a fun way to bond with your cat. Even if you aren't planning on taking your cat for walks, it is an important skill to have in an emergency. In case the cat needs to wear a harness in an emergency, they are already acclimated to wearing one.
We'll show you some great ways to build trust with your cat to facilitate harness wearing and leash walking. We'll start from getting your cat used to the harness itself, and by the end, we'll teach you and your cat what you need to know to harness your cat's desires to explore outside.
