How to train cats to retrieve items.
Many dogs will help retrieve the thrown objects under the training of their owners. In fact, cats can also do this. As long as the owner has the patience to train, today I will teach everyone how to teach the cats to retrieve the thrown objects.
When training, put a collar and leash on the cat to control the cat’s behavior. First, take a small plush toy or other things the cat likes to play with, and say to the cat: “bite”. If the cat doesn’t bite, you can open the cat’s mouth and force the toy into the cat’s mouth. As long as the toy is not too big, the cat will usually grab the toy. At this time, the cat can be rewarded with food immediately.
At the same time, this method can be used to train the cat to understand the “put down” command. Whether the cat does the right bite or release, it must be given food rewards and stroked back to consolidate the training results.
After the cat is trained to master the commands of “bite” and “put down”, you can start playing games with the cat, throw the small toy out in front of the cat, and then point your finger to the small toy and call the cat “bite”. If you start The cat doesn’t understand, you can lead the cat to the little toy and call it to bite. After the cat catches the toy, you immediately step back and ask the cat to run over. After the cat catches the toy, you call the cat “put down”. Since the cat already understands the command to “put down”, you will generally put it down obediently. After reaching the goal, the cat will be rewarded with food and petted immediately.
