Error Free Kitten Raising Tips

Just minutes a day of learning gives you the best relationship possible with your cat!

Getting Started - Teaching Sit

Teach your kitten to sit on cue

Teach your kitten to do specific things to earn your attention. Offer treats to keep your kitten's attention on the lesson. Learning new things enriches your kitten's spirit and your relationship.

Start simple. Show your kitten a very tasty treat to get undivided attention on the treat. Allow the kitten to lick it as you SLOWLY move the treat slightly up and back.

Done correctly, the kitten will sit automatically because it's easier as the nose tilts back. Release the treat as soon as the kitten sits and praise. If the kitten stands up, the treat is too high. If the kitten keeps walking backwards, try the lesson with your kitten's back in a corner.
