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.
