  1. I love how she tries to go "over" the "tunnel" and ends up hitting her head on it. XD

    But this is such an awesome video. It gives me hope that maybe one day I can train my very shy cat.

  2. Try Turkey baby food without any seasonings or additives. She can eat it quickly and most cats seem to love it.

  5. I know your problem, my miniature poodle is exactly the same way. I found out that she becomes a completely different dog around tennis balls, though … so toys can actually mean more to your pet than food does!

  6. You can see this is not the case if you watch the cat's behavior. She's focused on finding that object and tagging it, actively looking for it. An untrained cat will maybe pat something you wave in front of her face, but it takes communication to establish that she gets "paid" for tapping that particular object, that she must seek it out.

  8. have you tried using treats? if you use the same food as the one it's already receiving "for free" in a bowl, it won't see any reason to work for it. it needs to be something worth it's attention. also maybe there's other things it likes. like being pet or playing with a certain toy.

  11. actually, you click AFTER to mark the behaviour, to say good job, heres your reward. look up zacgeorge21 or some of the horse ct'ers. they ALL do the same, with outstanding results. not to mention that they are pros.

  12. actually, in every training vid ive seen, u click AFTER to REWARD the behaviour. that tells the animal "u did great!"

  13. So glad to see this vid up on youtube! for those just getting started, note that her clicks are a bit late. This could be because of the delay between video and sound… I don't know! You want to click WHILE the animal is doing the bheaviour, not after.

  14. True, but can you get your cat to do the same consistently as she does with her cat? That is the key. They are communicating, not just playing.
    When was the last time you saw a cat go through an agility course? My cat acting like a cat wouldn't do that.

  15. i have always found that cats will "touch" a moving object and chase a beam of light without any special provocation. i can't see anything extraordinary happening in the vid. to me it looks like a cat being a cat and a person giving a bunch of treats to a cat.

  17. Brilliant and impressive! I am glad you posted this – I have been looking for that last bit to show my cat-owning friends (and I couldn't find it anymore on the Karen Pryor Clickrtraining site). I liked the bit about the variable reinforcement scheduals — something I find a bit tricky. Thanks for the post!
