Cat owners face some of the same behavioral challenges as their canine counterparts. Frustrating behaviors, such as aggression, biting, scratching and having accidents in the house, have led many to seek expert advice. With more than 40 percent of dog owners also having cats, professional dog trainers have seen an increased demand for feline behavior counseling services. Due to these facts and that there are 85.8 million cats in the United States kept as pets, according to the 2015-2016 American Pet Products Association (APPA) National Owners Survey, Animal Behavior College will introduce a core Cat Training Program this April.

To meet this increased demand, Animal Behavior College is offering a new "Doggie Day Care Short Term Program" in the first quarter of 2017.
