Overview

Train a cat? Yes, you can! Clicker training, the new way of communicating with animals, is quick and easy for you -- and it's fun for your cat. Clicker training can improve your cat's health, activity, and attitude toward life. It can make your cat happier and more affectionate.

In this easy-to-read beginner's guide, Karen Pryor, the world's leading clicker training expert, tells you how to teach your cat: to come when called, to play without biting or scratching, to stay off the table, to get along with dogs, to walk outside on a leash, to do cute tricks and games! All with a click and a treat!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Behavioral biologist Pryor dispels the commonly held idea that cats can train their owners but cannot be trained themselves. The author of Don't Shoot the Dog! is a leading authority on clicker training, a method based on operant conditioning that uses positive reinforcement and a "click" signal to shape useful or amusing behavior. Pryor illustrates how clicker training can be used to teach a cat to come when called, to sit up and beg, and to walk on a leash. For those owners who thought that they could never stop their cat from scratching the new sofa or leaping on the counter, she offers step-by-step instructions for eliminating such undesirable behaviors. In addition, Pryor asserts that clicker training can enhance communication between cat and owner and, since it provides for increased activity, can have health benefits as well. Clicker training really works, and though it is based on scientific principles of operant conditioning, it is easily used by the average pet owner. Pryor's book is unique, as no other book available treats use of this method with cats. Recommended for public libraries. Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll.
