Principles to be adhered to in pet cat training
1. Never use violence
Letting pet cats suck water through their noses is a well-known case of violence. Don’t do this. This practice is very serious to pet cats and can cause pet cats to urinate incontinence. Don’t hit the pet cat with newspapers or other light objects, it will always remember it, and when it sees you again, it will immediately avoid it. If there is a reason for punishment, such as prohibiting a pet cat from going to the dining table, and it runs up, then you can’t stand by with a smile. And it must be very clear that it will not work. Drive it down, or use a watering can to spray water on it, which is enough to show it that something is forbidden. If your pet cat scratches your hand and howls like a cat, you may find it funny, but this is a clear and non-misleading signal.
2. Intervene immediately when doing bad things
If the matter has passed, it is absolutely meaningless to punish the pet cat. The pet cat does not understand why its owner is so angry. This kind of it is uneasy and doesn’t know how to get along with others. Then other bad habits may develop, such as being sloppy, not paying attention to hygiene, or scratching everywhere.
3. Praise as often as possible
Only when praise is followed by good results can praise truly have a cumulative meaning. Its effect will be strengthened, and even if it doesn’t take effect immediately, at least it won’t be harmful in the future. Using the methods of praise, reward and encouragement, great success has been achieved in the tuning of pet cats. Unfortunately, most pet cat owners often neglect to praise their pet cats. For example, when pet cats are obedient, they will use scratching trees and learn to sleep and eat in the basket, or when they are very quiet in the car. It should be praised at the right time.
Exceptions are always humane, but pet cats may only feel confused. In the case of uncertainty, the only exception may have such consequences. Pet cats will act on their own rather than human wishes.
5. Keep your distance
If saying no out loud or adopting similar methods still does not change the cat’s bad habits, deterrent therapy can be used. That is, pet cats are suddenly frightened when they do bad things, such as the screaming of a mouse or whistle that pops up suddenly. But don’t let the pet cat feel that the owner is the mastermind of frightening it. This kind of thing can happen at any time, so the fifth principle is that if you want to use deterrence therapy to get rid of the bad habits of pet cats, you must stay out of the matter.
6. Patience, time, will
If you want to change your pet cat or adapt it to something that it fears, you must have a lot of patience and give the pet cat a certain amount of time. Once it shows a little courage, immediately praise and encourage it. Don’t worry about setbacks, especially don’t show that you are angry with it, so the sixth principle is to have enough patience, time and strong will.
The training of pet cats may be a very long process. Moreover, not all pet cats will be successfully trained. Every pet cat has its own personality and personality. If some habits cannot be changed, the owner should not be too much. Regardless, as long as it does not affect life, pet cat training can be cancelled.
