Training Your Cat Not to Scratch Furniture

Grinding claws is a part of nature of cats, so it is impossible to stop them. For cats, the claw is its most powerful weapon, so it must always wear away the aging keratin to make it sharp.

In addition, grinding the claws is also used to show their own power and increase the odor. There are scent glands inside the forefoot of cats, so they grind their claws are also to let feet have their own smell.

Despite this, if you let it grind the claw casually, the sofas, curtains, chairs, carpets, wooden floors, walls, etc. of your home will become ragged and terrible. And once the cat has determined where to grind its claws, it can not be changed easily, which will be even more costly.

It is the hardest thing to educate cat to grind the claws in an acceptable place. Therefore, such education should be started as early as possible before the furniture is badly spoiled.

Training should begin from kittens. First, you need prepare a special grinding tool. If the cat begins to grind its claws on the furniture, you should immediately say “no” and bring it to the special plank you prepared before, grasp the cat’s front legs with both hands and place them on a wooden post and simulate the scratching of the cat. So that the exudates of the glands on the cat’s feet can be painted on the wooden posts.

At the beginning, the cat may be disobedient, but after a few moments it will grind its claws patiently. Praise it when it can skillfully grind its claws on the special plank. After several time’s training, coupled with the scent of the secreted fluid, the cat will take the initiative to scratch on the wooden post. Once your cat developing such habits, it will no longer scratch the furniture.

How to Correct Cat Bad Behavior

If your cats are doing some things that you’d really prefer they didn’t do, it will be a good chance that you can train that bad behavior away.

But first, try to understand why the cat is behaving in that way. There must be a reason, and from the cat’s perspective, that behavior is perfectly reasonable.

There could be several reasons why your cats are acting out — they might be stressed over a new change in your home, they might have a medical condition or they simply may not understand that their behavior is wrong. While you may think that your cats is misbehaving because they are upset or spiteful toward you, this is usually not the case.

Redirecting the behavior instead of punishing your cats for it is more likely to put they back on track. By punishing them, they may feel threatened by you, which can ultimately lead to even more stress and bad habits. If they are fearful of you, this will also damage your bond with one another.

However, they should be made aware of unwanted behaviors. One way of doing this is by connecting bad behaviors with something unpleasant. For instance, cats are averse to certain scents like perfume and citrus. You can use these scents in where you don’t want your cats to go to keep them away from those places.

If cats are clawing your furniture, for example, they are driven by instinct to do that. They need to claw something – it’s a survival instinct.

So there’s not much chance of getting your cats to stop clawing. But you can train cats to focus their clawing instinct on acceptable objects, like scratching posts.

If your cats sometimes play too rough, and begin biting or scratching, that’s also a behavior that can be trained away – at least to a degree. 

When you’re playing with your cats and they begin biting or scratching, startle them with a loud noise. You can clap your hands or make a hissing sound – just something to startle cats into stopping what they are doing. And then just simply walk away. Do that every time that your cats get rough, and they will learn that the consequence of biting and scratching is that playtime comes to an end.

Always remember to praise your cats for good behaviors as well. Give them a treat for a job well done, and they will learn to associate their actions with their rewards.

Tips for Cat Training

Everyone knows that cats are cold and wild, and they are difficult to tame. But if cats are not trained, they will be more destructive and naughty, scratching furniture, going to bed secretly, pushing down fragile items and so on. Therefore, cat training is necessary, and as long as you master the correct method, the cat will behave well.

Suitable training age. Cat training should start from a young age. The best age is 2-3 months. Kittens are easier to train at this time.

Master the timing of training. The best time to train a cat is before eating food,  the greater the temptation of food, the easier the cat to be trained.

Control the length of training time. Cats can just focusing attention for a short period of time, controlling each training time about ten minutes is appropriate. You can train them several times a day. Teaching one action at a time. It is difficult for cats to learn several actions at a time. If they always fail, the cat will lose confidence and don’t want to learn anymore.

Quiet training environment. It is best to train cats in a quiet situation. Noisy environment or large numbers of people will scare away the cat, and it will be difficult to train them in future. When training a certain action, we should use a fixed training method. If owners adopt different training methods, the cat will feel confused, and the training effect will be worse.

Patient training attitude. Everyone knows that cats have strong self-esteem. In fact, many times they don’t want to be at the mercy of people. So you should have a good attitude,and combines training and play. And be more patient, even if your cat do something wrong, you should not scold or punish it too much, in case the cat is disgusted with training, which will let your mountain in labour bring forth a mouse.

If you want to train dogs to fetch a newspaper, you should use the moment every morning newspaper delivered.

When you give a command to the dog to get the newspaper, the dog will feel puzzled at the beginning. You should take it to the place where newspapers are put in and fetch the newspaper.

Hold the newspaper up and says “newspaper”to the dog. Give a“fetch newspaper” command, then let it hold the newspaper in the mouth, patting and praising it after it complete the action.

Induce the dog back to house, and give the newspaper to you, then admire it again. Praise and treat to reinforce the behavior. Repeat the training. After a few days’ training, you can try to command the dog to fetch the newspaper.

Once your dog gets the hang of fetching newspaper and successfully bringing it to you, you can try other command words to train her to fetch other objects for you.

Tips for Training Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever is a very intelligent dog, which ranks in the top ten in the dog IQ list. Its IQ can reach a level equal to a three years old baby.

Therefore, compared to other dogs, Golden Retriever training is still relatively easy to use. For some not too difficult movements and skills, they can master faster. Please follow me to take a look at some tips for training Golden Retriever and make it more clever.

  1. Do not praise too much. The praise of Golden Retriever should be limited to when the Golden Retriever dog is very obedient. If you praise it at every turn, it will be confused. It does not know when it will be praised, that will increase the difficulty of future training.

  1. To correct in time. When the Golden Retriever is preparing to do something that is wrong, it should be stopped loudly and decisively. If you reprimand it later, the dog will not understand the reason and will continue to do those wrongthings. What’s more, if it is often reprimanded in the case of unexplained reasons, it will gradually become distrustful to the owner and no longer listen to the owner’s orders.


  1. Improve adaptability. Golden Retriever often evades or yells at what it doesn’t like, or even destroys it. This may sometimes cause great trouble for the owner. In this case, we must first have patience. Let the Golden Retriever slowly approach what it does not like, and at the same time, keep talking to it in a gentle voice and calm it down. If you fight thedog at this time, it will make Golden Retriever hide even further.
  1. Have patience. Golden Retriever can not remember and handle byonly once or twice teaching. It needs to form a memory gradually during constant training. Therefore, the breeder is required to have patience and keep train it.


With the above tips, training will be easier. We hope that each owner will have a well-behaved dog.
