Cats can be trained. The secret is clicker training. In this 2-min tutorial, learn what clicker training is and why it is an excellent way to train your cat. A clicker is a hand-held tool that makes a clicking sound. We teach the cat that one-click = one treat. Then we can use the clicker to pinpoint a behavior we want to reward. For example, if you are working on high five, you would click the split second that your cat raises their paw. Now your cat knows that raising their paw is the desired behavior. Once your cat learns that they earn a reward for that behavior, they will start to repeat it in anticipation of winning at the clicker training game. Once the cat presents the behavior repeatedly, we add a signal to it. This method is how we train your cat!
Clicker training your cat has so many benefits. It helps overcome boredom, improves behavior, and strengthens the cat-human bond.
Have fun training!
