3 Cat Tricks To Teach During Kitten Training | Petplan | Petplan
While treats are a good way to motivate your pet to learn a new trick, using sound is an alternative way to condition your cat. Clickers can help your cat associate sound with performing a trick. Each time your cat correctly performs the trick, use the clicker as a sign of a job well done. They are more effective taking cues from sounds using a clicker or treats. In order for them to associate the word with the trick, train them first to do the trick with treats or sounds and then add the word in once they have mastered it.
Cats can learn to do multiple tricks, but when training only teach one trick at a time. Keep it basic and simple so you and your cat can have a successful session. A sure way to get your cat to not master a trick is to punish it for not doing it. Never punish your cat.

Time is of the essence with cats. Because they can lose interest pretty quickly, treats are a way to keep their attention and the momentum of the training session going. Reward your cat immediately after they perform the trick. This has to happen within seconds so the cat knows that their good performance is associated with the treat being given. The second your cat moves on to doing something else not related to the trick, it will be too late. Training at the right time is also beneficial to a successful training session. Training right before meal time may make your cat more motivated by food because they are hungry.
This makes them willing to try harder to get that treat they are craving. If you wait until after they are full from their meal they may seem disinterested and just want to take a nap. Reduce the amount of treats you give them to reduce their calorie intake. Cats can relate cuddles and head massages to positive reinforcement too and they will realize that soon they are rewarded eventually for their good behavior. Your cat may become a beggar and want treats just for being cute. Keep the treats just for training so the cat knows that treat time is related to trick time.
The rule of rewards whether it be treats, sounds, or cuddles is to only reward when the cat displays good behavior or has successfully completed the trick. This works for other types of training too like giving the cat a treat when they use their scratching post instead of the sofa. Do not reward the cat if it does something unfavorable just to get them to stop doing it, i. Your tone is everything.
During training, using more sugar than spice will get you further in along in your session. Use a loving tone in your voice while training instead of a disciplinary one. This goes hand in hand with the reward they will get once they show good behavior. Next is Sparkey.
