Format: Paperback
In his book, Ray Berwick provides a comprehensive cook book approach to training cats along with very helpful photographs that show you how its done. In it you'll see how easy it actually is to train your cat to not only come when you call but to also "stay", "sit", "speak", "beg", "give paw" and much more.
The myth that cats are too independent to obey is quickly dispelled when you see how easily your cat responds to your commands while you both have fun together. Cats learn fast when you speak their language and as an animal trainer for Universal Studios who trained many cats, Berwick knows cat speak!
Following his formula, many owners will find as I did with mine that their cats are able to learn some of the simpler tricks like "come", "stay" and "sit" in as little as one five minute training session!
More advanced things such as leash training, toilet training (on a human toilet) and learning to be hearing for the deaf will take time but they are also covered in detail in the book. It is a soup to nuts guide with everything you'll need to transform your cat into everthing from the most well behaved cat in the neighborhood to VIP kitty!

This is a review for the soft cover book with the blue front that has a photo of ray Berwick holding a couple cats.

The movie animal trainer Ray Berwick shares some of his animal training secrets and they really are good ones to know. He takes advantage of a cat's instinctive understanding of certain body language to allow you to communicate with your cat in subtle ways that make everybody's life much easier.

I got this book in the late 80's and followed its instructions for the life of my cats. They have never scratched my furniture, never scratched or hissed or bit anybody. They have used the toilet and flushed for years, come when called, never beg for food, never even THINK of jumping up on kitchen counters and know a bunch of cute tricks.

This was the best book on cat training I have ever seen. It is a wonder that it isn't in its 20th printing and flying off the shelves to this day. There is nothing out of date in the book.

This is a must-have book for all cat owners.

I have trained my cats according to ray berwick's book since I got them in 1987. They are exremely well behaved. They NEVER beg for food. They use the toilet and flush. They come when called by name. They have never ever scratched me on purpose. They have not once scratched the furniture. People are amazed that the cats understand me when I give them commands. It's all because of Ray Berwick's book. I am so sorry it's out of print. I have two old copies that I've been lending to people for years. This movie aninimal trainer really knows his stuff.
