Getting Started -
Reinforce coming when called
When your kitten has learned to come when you call, then try
this game. Start with a hungry kitten and human partner. Sit on
either end of a hallway with the hallway doors closed and the kitten with
you. Take turns calling
the kitten from one end of a hallway to the other.
If needed, show
the kitten a treat to get the game going.
If your kitten
knows how to sit, give one treat for coming and a second treat for a sit.
Call your kitten
before every meal and before anything wonderful happens. Praise and
give treats each time the kitten comes to you.
