Pro cat workshops

Feline behaviour training focused on the technical side which incorporates workshops and demonstrations with cats, allowing you to fully understand and put into practice the concepts learned.

The workshops take place in small groups of 5 to 5 people under the supervision of members of the Cat Educator team. Each participant will get to interact with cats, which requires a particular attention to respecting the rules established at the start of the course.

Specially designed for animal professionals dealing regularly with cats, such as feline behaviour consultants and the staff of veterinary clinics, shelters, pet stores, security and pension companies, as well as foster homes. The places available for this course are very limited, in order to allow everyone to participate in the workshops while respecting the welfare of the cats.
