Fifteen Rules for Getting Started with the Clicker
by Karen Pryer
 
Don’t worry, at first, about getting rid of behavior you don’t like. Instead, start with some good things you want the cat to learn to do. Keep notes (the refrigerator door is a good place.) Jot down what the cat was doing when you started. Once a day or so, jot down what you have achieved with each behavior. You will be surprised at the progress! Reward YOURSELF for the cat’s improvements. Here are some simple tips to get you started.
Push and release the springy end of the clicker, making a two-toned click. Then treat. Keep the treats small. Use a delicious treat at first: little pieces of tuna, say – not a lump of kibble.  Make it something special the cat will want to eat, you will get better results.
