Overview

The perfect resource to nurture the talents and relieve the boredom of your tame little tiger

 

Cats are clever animals and are often hopelessly under-stimulated in indoor life. This book shows cat owners how to nurture their cat both in body and mind and how to teach them a variety of different tricks and exercises using clicker training in a cat-friendly way. Great fun for owner and cat, this guide walks owners through planning and preparing training; explains the three paths to the perfect trick: shaping, luring, and capturing; and demonstrates how to smooth the path to the first tricks. It covers such easy tricks as begging, jumping over an obstacle, rolling over, and washing; offers solutions to possible difficulties, and includes directions for trick training with more than one cat.

    Very good book...

    A relatively short read at only 90 pages or so, but a wealth of information. I was able to read through and start applying the clicker training right away. It amazed me how quickly my maine coon picked up on the shaping in just two short sessions! I would definitely recommend this book.
