Training Help for your Cat

Are you at your wits’ end because of your cat’s behavior? We can help! The Oregon Humane Society’s Training and Behavior Department offers one-on-one consultations, a free pet behavior helpline, and an online resource library. We want to help keep pets happy in their homes by educating people about humane and responsible treatment and training of their companion pets.

One-on-One Training Consultations

During a one-on-one consultation, we’ll review your unique situation and help you discover solutions to fit your specific needs. We can help you with litter box issues, fearful behavior, preparing your cat for a baby, issues with cat and kids living together, or problems with multi-cat households.  As of March 18, 2020, all cat consultations will be held virtually via video conferencing.

We utilize humane and positive training methods and encourage you to have fun while working with your cat.


$80 for one consultation. Consultations are typically 45 minutes.

$205 for a pack of three consultations. Consider purchasing a 3-pack for problem behaviors that have been going on for a long time.

Proceeds from consultation fees go to support the animals and programs at OHS.

Book an Appointment

You can book an appointment online. Trainers are typically available for day-time appointments. If you are planning to purchase a 3-Pack, we recommend meeting with the same trainer for each appointment. Consider meeting with your trainer once before scheduling your second and third session so you can work out a plan for follow ups together.
