Encourage your cats to see hands as always rewarding. To discourage biting, dab your knuckles or the back of your hand with a little homemade or store-bought treat paste
Say "gentle" as your cat or kitten licks your hand, pulling your hand away calmly if she begins to nip or bite.
Toss high-value treats at your cat's paws, and once your cat can follow the toss, add the phrase "Find It." Yes, it's that simple. You can then play the shell game with Tupperware containers or even your hands
Say "gentle" if she claws or bites your hand, using a dab of cat paste to encourage licking. Reveal the treat after she licks or taps your hand gently with her paw.
You can use a DIY or store-bought target wand or even the point of your finger
The moment she touches it, click and reward her. Once your cat reliably moves to the target, say the word "target" to put this behavior on cue.
Whenever your cat sits naturally, click and give her a reward. Soon you'll notice your cat sitting to cue you when you bring the treats out. Add the word "sit" once you can predict her behavior
Then, try luring her into position with a target wand or pointing signal. Click and reward this pose. Gradually phase off clicking every correct response, using the clicker and treats intermittently.
Create a cat mat by laying a flat mat, towel, or cloth napkin on the counter, sofa, or tabletop. Curiosity might not kill your cat, but it will get the better of her! When she steps on the mat, click
Teach your cat to stay on her mat with treats. Introduce "stay" cue. Use the mat to encourage her to stay in specific locations. Handy for travel and vet visits.
Cats can learn to come from the minute they enter your home. Pair positive experiences and the shake of a treat cup with the word "come
Train your cat to go in the carrier by rewarding her in it. Use treats and meals, add cue "in the box." Reward her for getting in and carrying her.
