“Cats have a reputation for demanding whatever they want and becoming frustrated when their expectations aren't met,” said Jacob. “Clicker training empowered Kitty, offering an effective means of communication and enriching his life with mental stimulation.”
The tricks in this video were predominately trained using free shaping, and included some targeting with a Clik Stik and marking the behavior using a musical sound. In just a few months of clicker training, Kitty transformed from a shelter kitten to a sensational and happy cat.
“Cats love to win. Clicker training sets up cats for success by focusing on rewarding desired behaviors,” Jacob points out. “Clicker training gives cats more influence over their worlds, and elevates their caretakers from ’servants’ to teammates.”
