Training Programs

Executive Cat Aggression Training Program

Our Executive Training Program is for Kansas City cat owners looking to eliminate any cat aggression directed towards other cats or humans in the home.

Our goal is to modify your cat’s aggressive behavior and eliminate all cat conflicts. During our personalized, in-home training programs we will:

  • Reduce or eliminate aggression between cats within the household
  • Minimize instances of cats fighting over territory or resources
  • Address aggression directed toward family members or owners
  • Teach effective management strategies to prevent future conflicts
  • Increase understanding of cat behavior and body language to prevent misunderstandings that lead to aggression
  • Create a safe and stress-free environment where all members of the household can coexist peacefully

After over two decades of treating aggressive behavior in hundreds of cats, our team, led by Dr. Echterling-Savage, can confidently treat any instance of cat aggression. Our Indirect Assessment of Feline Behavior is based on years of experience as well as the latest scientific research in cat behavior. Upon completion of the Indirect Assessment of Feline Behavior, our pre-training team will craft a personalized training plan based on classical conditioning to modify your cat’s behavior. Our treatment is supported by the latest research in animal behavior such as the study conducted by Mills et al. (2004) in which 8000 cases of cat aggression were analyzed. Through our unique approach, we aim to equip cat owners with the knowledge and tools necessary to modify their cats’ behavior. According to our Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist, Dr. Echterling-Savage, “By reducing and eliminating aggression in cats we create harmony in your home. Creating a stress-free environment for everyone is at the heart of what we do at Beyond the Dog.”

The Executive Training Program offers comprehensive in-home cat training sessions tailored to your cat’s specific needs. Over the course of three to four weeks, you’ll receive 1-hour sessions, three days a week. Upon submitting your training contract and completing the Indirect Assessment of Feline Behavior, our pre-training team, under the guidance of Dr. Echterling-Savage, meticulously designs a personalized training program for your cat. Your designated trainer will then conduct two one-on-one sessions with your cat each week, focusing on targeted behavioral modifications. The third session, dedicated to developing your cat training skills, ensures a holistic approach to pet training and integration. Please be advised that additional fees may apply if the indirect behavior assessment indicates severe behavior issues in your cat, as confirmed by our expert team.

If you are a pet parent with an insurance policy covering behavior modification, our cat aggression behavior modification is likely covered. Most companies with behavior policies such as Trupanion cover behavioral training when under the direction of a CAAB or a Board Certified Veterinary Behaviorist.
