Clicker training involves using a clicker as a reward or encouragement when training a cat. Cats can interact with the clicker and show the right actions and behaviour. Clicker training is often associated with a healthy state where cats associate sounds with food and function, and where cats make movements to eat.
We find that a clicker is more effective than the verbal command because cats can hear the clicker’s sounds more clearly than a voice because the tones of the human voice change while the clicker’s music is always constant or constant.
The click is short and precise, while a voice, phrase or word at the position of the cats is quite long. The saying “good boy” takes more time than a click.
With a clicker, cats can successfully train in three simple steps: to capture the behaviour of cats, mark their practice and increase their behaviour.
Guidelines for training with a clicker:
1. To make a sound, press the end of the spring and then release it. Treat the cat.
2. If you notice any behaviour that you want your cat to continue, click during the practice, never after.
3. Click once to express your enthusiasm for your cat’s actions and add more goodies.
4. Remember that training times should be short. In three short, five-minute sessions per day, you can learn more than annoying and stressful rehearsal hours.
5. Correct incorrect actions by ignoring and clicking if the proper behaviour is displayed. Click when your kitten is using the cat litter box or when playing on the scratching post, not on the furniture.
6. Click for random and voluntary actions near your destination. You should lure the cat into one position, but never throw, push, or hold it.
7. Never wait for your cat to do the perfect action that you ordered to do instead of clicking and rewarding you for small steps in the right direction. When your cat asked to bend over the back, click.
8. Wear the clicker whenever you are with your cat to see the good deeds.
9. Make sure you put the clicker aside when chastising your cat.
The clicker’s freedom of confrontation makes it the ideal instrument for training your cat.
You can also be happy with the results you achieved all of the positive behaviours for which you have worked with your cat. With a lot of understanding, love and patience, training with the cat clicker will continue to deliver beautiful results that you and your cat will enjoy over the next few years.
