Remember the name training method
When it is in a state of excitement, it is often called by its name so that it can easily remember its name. For example, it is a good time to touch it, play or before feeding. Special attention should be paid to that, do not impose punishment when it hears the name running, otherwise, it will associate the punishment with calling the name, and fear in front of you.
Motor behavior training
Cats also have some behaviors. For example, when you call it and want to hug it, you have to give instructions to the cat. At this time, you have to repeat these actions frequently, and when the cat does the right thing. At that time, you have to reward it, and if you do something wrong, you have to punish it. The general situation is the reward of food, language, touching and other behaviors.
Language Behavior Training Method
Including verbal compliments, touching the head or back, and giving food snacks can strengthen the cat’s correct movements. At the beginning, every time the cat completes a simple action, he can be rewarded. As the training moves are upgraded, the threshold of the reward conditions should also be improved. When he completes some complex actions, he will be given a moderate reward, so as to give full play to the reward.
Train British Shorthair to sit down
Train the British Shorthair to shake hands with you, you can adopt the method of food temptation and reward. Before training, prepare some foods that British Shorthair likes to eat, such as: fish fillets, beef jerky and so on. The owner smeared some minced meat on his right hand to make the finger smell of minced meat. Then he tempted British Shorthair to come over, and then the owner stretched out his right hand to the cat to let him smell the scent of the food, and at the same time gently gave the cat the instruction to “handshake”. Waiting for the cat to smell the scent of minced meat, he will naturally stretch his head. Then the owner raised his head with his hands smeared with the scent of minced meat. Of course , the cat would stand up and stretch out his front paws in order to eat the minced meat. At this time, the owner can stretch out his hand to grab the cat’s paw, and then shake the hand of the cat while saying “handshake” again and again, and at the same time pass the delici ous food to British Shorthair to eat.
