They sure can. Anyone who owns a cat knows that they are intelligent, inquisitive beings.

Most people associate obedience training with terms that include stay, heel, come, down etc. However, obedience training is only one type of training.

While that might seem obvious to some, it is at the core of every successful training program. Cats might find different things rewarding to them than dogs but that doesn’t mean they can’t be rewarded and can’t learn. Instead of a scratch behind the ear or tossing a stick, both of which will send the typical Golden Retriever into bliss yet earn you a blank stare or contempt with many cats, try a catnip toy or a delectable treat.

Steven Appelbaum Guest Post – Car Safety for Dogs

Car Safety for Dogs

Jack Russell Terrier Dog Enjoying a Car Ride. Can you take advantage of the safety harness for your dog, when traveling with him/her in your car or truck?

The President of Animal Behavior College, Steven Appelbaum, wrote a guest post on WayCoolDogs.com which talks about safety harness crash test results for dogs.

The non-profit Center for Pet Safety tested several brands of pet harnesses using the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS 213). The crash test was conducted at an independent laboratory that also tests for the Department of Transportation, using life sized dog test dummies.

Steve believes that all pet products designed to keep a pet secured in an automobile will be held to the same or similar standards as human seat belts.
