Clicker Training for Cats

Cats are often considered untrainable – but nothing could be further from the truth. Not only are cats far more sociable than many people used to think, they can also be easily trained. One popular and effective way to do this is with clicker training.

Clicker training is a positive reinforcement method based on behavioral psychology. Marking desirable behavior with a sound, usually a click, communicates to the cat that she is doing something you want her to do.

In  a recent article for Animal Wellness Magazine, I explored why clicker training can be a great way to bond with your cat, and how it could even save your cat’s life in an emergency.

    We tried this with Rumpy and he was doing pretty well with it until his asthma intervened.

    If I get another kitten, I think I am going to try this. Mine are so set in their ways now that I don’t know if it would work now.
