How Clicker Training Can Help Your Cat's Behavior

Clicker training

Kitten image The principle of clicker training is to associate the "click" with the right behavior, reward that behavior, and make sure your kitten understands why she got the reward.

By using the "click" to mark the correct behavior, your kitten will know exactly what she did to be rewarded.

Start by giving kibbles of kitten food as rewards and then, as you progress with each command, move to using praise as her reward.
