San Francisco (PRWEB) July 7, 2008
Are you thinking about adopting another cat or do you have cats that are at war with each other? Or do you want to learn more about the exotic Bengal cat breed? If so, "The Cat Coach" Marilyn Krieger, a nationally recognized Certified Cat Behavior Consultant, will be teaching two telecourses this summer, which are designed to address these interests.
Often referred to as a "cat whisperer," Marilyn Krieger has a unique talent for understanding and interpreting feline behavior issues. Raising Canine, the respected organization known for dog training, now is presenting a rare look into the cat world by offering the following live, telephone-based telecourses:
"Introducing the New Cat to the Resident Cat without Stress," is being conducted on Wednesday, July 16, 9:00 pm ET/6:00 pm PT. This telecourse focuses on acquainting new cats to the resident cat, using fun techniques that are stress-free for both humans and cats. Among the topics being covered are: phases of introduction, body language, recognizing aggression before it occurs and what to do when a cat becomes aggressive.
"Bengal Cats," a session devoted to this popular and intelligent breed, is set for Saturday, August 9, at 6:00 pm ET/3:00 pm PT. As one of the foremost experts on Bengal cats, Krieger's research has appeared in Catnip, the prestigious monthly newsletter produced in cooperation with The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. This class is primarily targeted at trainers and behaviorists, but is open to the public.
Raising Canine is making these 90-minute telecourses available to both the general public and to animal behavior professionals. The cost is $30.00 for each class. All of Raising Canine's telecourses are audio-taped and available to conveniently download from the Internet if users are unable to attend the live presentations.
