I had great success clicker training our dog (she's extremely treat driven, and other training methods like choke chain and dominance-type methods just didn't work), and had the bright idea of trying to clicker train my cats, too. I gave it a shot this morning, conditioning them to associate the sound of the clicker with food rewards. But I don't know if I'm slowing myself down. I put the treats in a belt pouch (bought for training el muttnik), and all they do is stare at the pouch. Cats are smart! Anyone else trained their cats? Any tips, tricks, ideas, to make the process smoother and faster? I'm not planning on entering the kitties in any obedience competitions, I'd just like to teach them a few "useless" tricks like coming on comand and sitting.
