Training your cat has important benefits
Training your cat has several important benefits. Not only are you stimulating his body and his mind, which helps keep him healthy, you are spending time together means you’re strengthening the bond you share.Clicker training uses a distinct and consistent signal to mark a desired behavior in real time and then follows that signal with a motivating reward. Because animals understand precisely which action earned the click and their reward, they learn new behaviors quickly, easily, and enthusiastically.
