Clicker Cat Training

 Clicker Cat Training

Clicker training is a booster or reward for a cat when you train it. Clickers are most often used as a support when training a cat for a reward. Cats associate the clicker with good behavior that they will use for a long time. Clicker training is associated with the classical condition (they associate sound with food) and operant conditioning (the cat performs movements to receive food).

Why use a clicker and not tell a cat or make a sound to get your cat to do a trick? A clicker has a sound that a cat can hear and associates good behavior. With words, our tones in our voice can change from time to time, which a cat may mistake for training. When speaking through commands, a cat could confuse commands. With the use of a clicker, it is more of a training tool to initiate the behavior with the cat. You can then save the clicker for that behavior or trick once a cat has learned the behavior

When you take the cat out for a walk or on a trip, the clicker is a good item to take with you. Cats can be distracted by other people or animals in the area. By using the clicker, you will reinforce the behavior you have taught them. Also, a clicker can help your cat walk with you instead of wandering around.

A good example would be the cat jumping a hoop. The cat will have to know that when you click it will get a treat. Start with very small treats in your pocket.

Once the cat touches the hoop, click, try. Then show the cat to go through the hoop once it clicks, treat. Keep doing this until the cat goes through the hoop on its own or you order it. Reinforce the behavior Remember to have snacks on hand so that when you see your cat go through the hoop, there are snacks available.

Training a cat with a clicker can be fun for both you and the cat. Taking steps in training will be rewarding for you and the cat. Try not to rush a cat into training, as they can get confused, especially if they didn't step before going down. Training will take time and steps to achieve this behavior. Patience, love, and rewards will be the key factor in training your cat.
