How to Clicker Train Your Cat

How to Clicker Train Your Cat

Clicker training is a positive reinforcement training method that can be used to teach cats a variety of behaviors.

What You Need

To clicker train your cat, you will need a clicker, a small, handheld device that makes a clicking sound. 

Introduce the Clicker

Start by introducing the clicker to your cat. Click the clicker and immediately give your cat a treat. 

Mark the Behavior

Once your cat understands the clicker, you can start marking the behavior you want to teach. 

Be Patient 

Clicker training takes patience and consistency. 

Add a Cue

Once your cat is consistently doing the behavior, you can add a cue. The cue can be a word or a hand signal. 

Practice Makes Perfect

The more you practice, the better your cat will get at the behavior. Be sure to practice regularly and in different environments.
