We have all heard about training your pet dog but did you know that even cats can pick up instructions as quickly as dogs? You might not know this, but cats are pretty quick in picking up some of the cat tricks. With time, your cat will also get used to you calling them by a name. To help your pet pick up these skills, it’s important to train your kitten from an early age and as soon as possible.
The behaviorists at PURINA believe positive reinforcement is not only the best technique for establishing a good relationship with your dog while training, but that it’s also the most effective. Positive reinforcement consists of associating a reward with a desired behaviour. If you use positive reinforcement during training, your dog will learn to associate training time and behaving well with praise, affection or treats. Some forms of punishment training may lead to stress and anxiety for dogs and may weaken the relationship you have with your dog.
Start with a set of basic social skills. It’ll help the little one to deal with situations with ease, rather taking them by a sense of sudden surprise or shock. Try helping them build the confidence and curiosity from an early stage. Without your help, your pet cat won’t be able to adapt to new situations and surroundings. Kittens usually become more aware after reaching 7 weeks.

Be patient! Training is bound to take time, so encourage your pet in each session with lots of positive praise and rewards for good behavior. If your cat does something wrong, use a firm “no” before directing them to something else. For example – if they are knocking items off a surface, say “no” and dangle a toy for them to play with instead.
