Low Stress Handling

We are in the process of earning our certification in Low-Stress Handling.
It’s not just a piece of paper – we are truly changing the way we work with dogs and cats!
Yesterday we closed the practice for a couple hours to hold a workshop to practice the different towel wraps for cats.
There are SIX different ways to wrap a cat in a towel to make him feel safe, yet keep him somewhat restrained. Why six? You pick the wrap that best fits the cat’s personality and preference! We had some cats who wanted to have their head covered and feel hidden. Others hate having their head covered and want to know what’s going on!
We started with practicing on stuffed animals (wrapping a cat properly is harder than it looks). Then we graduated to wrap Kelly’s and Miranda’s cats – they were very good sports!
Here’s some photos of the action…
