Clicker training is a way to have fun, positive interactions with cats. This is especially important in a shelter where some cats don’t view humans in a very positive light. It reminds the cats that nice things happen when people are around. Eventually cats become less fearful and more interested in potential adopters.
PAWS volunteer Gail has been teaching clicker training to other volunteers, and working with a number of cats at the shelter.
Here’s a session with Roamer, one of her star pupils.
“Good job, Roamer!” Gail gives him a little reward.
