Clicker Training for Clever Cats
Sofort lieferbar (Download)
BeschreibungWrong! There is a method of learning which no mammal is impervious to - not even the cat. It is called 'classical conditioning', and is used in a very specific way as part of clicker training. Every click results in something positive for the cat: a treat, a cuddle, a favourite game. And because cats are intelligent, they quickly understand what kind of behaviour gets them a 'click' and a reward, and they will experiment in order to find out what else might work. This manual gives you the knowledge and the chance to explore a new world together with your cat.
Inhaltsverzeichnis- What does classical conditioning involve, and why the clicker works with every cat- How mistakes can be avoided, and how to use rewards properly and develop chains and sequences of behaviour.- How to practise small tricks - 'sit, 'down', and 'stay, 'go and lie down in the cat carrier', or 'Home! Now!'- How you can use the clicker to resolve your cat¿s problems (e.g. when scared) and eliminate bad behaviour (aggressiveness, or scratching the furniture).
