Cat on a Walk

by Jane Moreno 30 Mar 2022 0 Comments

Why should cats miss out on outdoor adventures while dogs enjoy them freely? Many indoor felines yearn for the chance to bask in the sun and explore the great outdoors, but the risks of allowing them to roam freely can be daunting. Busy roads, aggressive dogs, and inattentive humans pose significant threats to our beloved cats. That's where leash training comes in.

 Many people initially scoff at the idea of leash-walking cats, assuming that felines would find it beneath their dignity. While it's true that some cats may resist the notion, others surprisingly take to it quite well and even come to enjoy their walks. Until you try, you won't know where your cat falls on this spectrum. So, let's dive in.

To begin, you'll need a well-fitting harness and a lightweight leash. It doesn't have to be fancy, just sturdy and comfortable for your cat. Avoid using just a collar, as some cats may freeze up with pressure around their necks. The goal is to encourage forward movement, not induce paralysis. Treats are essential for positive reinforcement, so have a bag of your cat's favorite snacks ready. And last but not least, patience will be your greatest ally throughout this training process.

Start indoors, allowing your cat to acclimate to wearing the harness. If your cat is timid, let them investigate the harness before putting it on. Gradually increase the time your cat wears the harness each day, offering treats to create positive associations. Once comfortable with the harness, introduce the leash in the same manner, letting your cat drag it around at first.

Once your cat is comfortable with both harness and leash, hold the leash without trying to lead your cat. Follow their movements and offer treats as encouragement. When ready, teach your cat to follow your lead by holding a treat in your right hand and gently guiding them with the leash in your left hand. Reward forward movement with treats and praise, gradually increasing the distance you walk together.

As your cat becomes adept at walking indoors, venture into the backyard. If your cat freezes or resists, reassure them and try again another day. Use the leash to gently guide them if they attempt to stray. With time and patience, you can gradually expand your outdoor adventures together.

Remember, every cat is different, so progress may vary. Stay patient, be consistent, and celebrate the small victories along the way. With dedication and love, leash-walking can become a rewarding experience for both you and your feline companion. Before long you will be able to take nice walks wherever you choose.
