Cats, like people, are individuals. Each Cat will react differently when the training begins. Your Cat may ignore you when you begin to train him, or he may be very curious and eager.

Whatever your Cat's personality, here are some pointers that will make the process easier and more enjoyable for both of you:

 

Ø  Train your Cat before he has his regular meal; a food reward won't be very enticing to your Cat if he has just finished dinner. Do not withhold food from your Cat to make him eager to learn. An overly hungry Cat will be an annoyed Cat and Cats, like people on a diet, often lose their appetite when their food is cut back.

Ø  Use your Cat's favorite food as a reward. This could be a little bit of his regular food or a special flavor or treat.   I find small pieces of dried liver or dried white bait work wonders.   Don’t’ forget to count in the training treats when you are measuring how much to feed your Cat in a day.

Ø  In the beginning train your Cat in a quiet environment which is free from distractions. Training your Cat in the living room with the radio or the television set on will make the process difficult, if not impossible.

Ø  Keep the training sessions short. End them before your Cat gets bored or tired and he will be more eager for the next session. We recommend 5 to 15-minute training sessions.

Ø  Keep the training sessions the same—same trainer, same behaviours, same commands and signals and the same reward.

 

Ø  Keep your behaviour focused and consistent. Your Cat will be confused if your behaviour or commands change during training.

Ø  Stay with it. Training your Cat once a week won't provide results. Once you begin, try to spend 5 to 15 minutes every day training your Cat.
