When considering what kind of training game fun to have for this months Positive Pet Training Blog Hop 101 Things To Do With A Box challenge, I realized that cat Amelia and I have never played any cardboard box training games. The dogs and I have a lot of fun with boxes. They particularly like using boxes for practicing paws up tricks and playing scent games. Amelia likes to chew apart cardboard boxes so it had never before occurred to me that she and I could play cat training games with one. Trying out new things is exactly what the 101 Things To Do With A Box game and the Positive Pet Training Blog Hop are about, so Amelia and I spent some clicker training time with a box.
Like most training games with any pets, dogs, cats, parrots, etc, Amelia started the first session by offering her best/favorite trick, a simple "sit." I watched her patiently and as soon as she looked at the box, I clicked and treated.
The Positive Pet Training Blog Hop is hosted by Cascadian Nomads, Dachshund Nola & Tenacious Little Terrier. Our theme this month is 101 Things To Do With A Box but any and all posts with a positive reinforcement training theme are welcome. Our Linky is open all week so we hope you'll join us. The next hop begins November 3rd and the theme is rear end awareness.
