Training Tips And Everything Feline

Thank you for your interest and for following Service Cats U.S. a.k.a. Deziz World, where all who visit become family. We are always adding links to this page, so check back often and/or bookmark it in case you need it in the future. Links included here will also cover Feline Behavior, Nutrition and Health. The Training Tips featured here will never go out of date or fashion as they incorporate Positive Reinforcement and the bond between animal and human. There is no other bond quite like it in the world. If a cat has chosen to love you and share it’s life with you, count yourself Blest. And then, check the post links below to help you  and your cat live a more harmonious and happy life together.

Below you’ll find links to Training posts written to help Cat and Dog owners train their pets. These Training posts are not meant to be all inclusive and should not be taken as a Training manual. All of the Tips/Tricks/Techniques discussed have been developed/used successfully by me (Audra High) throughout my many years of animal training, cats in particular. Training is all about Repetition and Rewards and takes time. No two animals learn at the same speed, but all animals do well with some training. These posts are not meant to train your animal to be a Service Animal, but rather to be a happy well adjusted member of your family. All Training posts are written in human English for reader and translator ease. If you have any questions, concerns or topics you would like to see covered, please contact us using the private form below or e-mail us at We try to answer all questions in a timely manner.
