Cat Behavior & Training

Cat training wrong with 4 reasons

Cat training wrong has always been part of the deal when you own a dog, though methods have changed a lot over the generations. Cats are a different story—but they shouldn’t be.

Herding Cats

It’s a basic principle of training

The bad news is that you’re often training your cat to do the opposite of what you want. How many times have you yelled “No!” and run over to scoop your cat off the kitchen counter? And yet, it never seems to learn. It’s a basic principle of training wrong. If a behavior results in something the animal likes, it’ll do it again. So, stop letting that principle work against you and get it to work for you instead.

The Power of Positivity

Cats happy when you the scratching post instead of trying to teach her not to scratch the couch

Cat training wrong gives you a more effective way to communicate and you may even find your cat communicates back. When you taught her cat to use the scratching post instead of trying to teach your not to scratch the couch. When you start ignoring undesirable behavior, you’ll need to hold your ground through the “extinction burst,” as trainers call it. Initially the animal will try harder.

Cats are pampered and their owners do as they please
 

To start teaching your cat to do things you want, you suggests training it to come when called. Stand two or three feet away, call your feline friend’s name to get its attention, then say, “Come,” and hold out a treat. If necessary, reach out with the treat then move it closer to your body to get the cat to follow it. Repeat until the cat starts to respond consistently, and then gradually call to your cat from farther and farther away.

Rich Rewards

Feed the cat when it completes the requests

Once that makes a believer of you, you can start training you cat to do more challenging but useful behaviors, such as tolerating nail trims or going willingly into a carrier. For nail trimming, start by rewarding your cat repeatedly for just allowing a paw to be touched.

Cat training wrong make sure you’re using food rewards that your cat is enthusiastic about: If kibble isn’t exciting enough, try soft treats, or bits of canned food. These rewards should be very small, and make sure to cut back a bit on your pet’s regular meals, to prevent weight gain.
