The Oregon State University Human-Animal Interaction Lab Offers FREE kitten training classes in Corvallis, OR!

Have a kitten between 3-8 months? Join our next free 6-week class!

Upcoming Classes:

  • Spring 2017 (Still accepting participants for our research program- see below!)
  • Kittens must be up to date with their vaccines to attend class

Kittens socialize and play with one another and meet new people (and you meet other cat owners!) Learn how to use positive reinforcement to work on problem behaviors and teach:

-Come when called
-Go to mat & stay
-Walk on harness & leash
-Trick behaviors like stand, high jump, jump through hoop, fetch… and many more!
