JUMPING ON HANDS UPDATE!
We hit a plateau with this trick so I decided to shift gears and use the yoga blocks to practice an important foundation behaviour I call perch. The yoga blocks allow me to experiment with what my ideal hand position should be to facilitate him stepping up. Specifically, I need to know how far apart my hands should be and how high they should be in relation to one another. .
BEGINNERS: If you are interested in starting to train your cat an excellent exercise is to work on two front paws on a block. Make sure the block is stable!
So what's the next step for me? Putting each of my hands on the block and eventually fading out the blocks. You can see he is still not fully comfortable putting his paws on my one hand so this will take time and patience 😉🙋🏻.
Have a better way to teach jumping on hands? I would love to know! #catteacher #clickertraining #catschool
