Weekly Trick – Top 5 Cat Tricks (According to Animal Planet)

Next week will be a new Saturday topic, as I have run out of tricks to share for now.  For this week, let’s talk about the top 5 tricks (for cats) according to the popular channel, Animal Planet.

The fifth trick in the top five is “shaking hands.”  This is probably the first trick anyone should try to teach their cat, as it is (believe it or not) the easiest trick for a cat to learn.  If they are receptive to learning tricks, this will be the test.

The forth top trick is “hurdle those obstacles”.  This trick is a little more advanced, but the basics of it is to put an obstacle on the floor (like a paper bag or a stick) and have the cat examine it and play with it, then run a “lure” (something like a feather or their favorite toy on a string), so that they will cross over top of the obstacle.

The third top trick is “hoop dreams”. This trick calls for a hula hoop and teaching your cat to first walk through the hoop, and progress to jumping through the hoop with the use of clicker training.  Animal Planet goes through how to perform each trick, step by step.

The second top trick is “paws-ing to shop”.  Use a large box with flaps, or if you don’t mind your cat crawling into a cabinet, and then place some of your cat’s favorite toys inside and use the command “go shopping” along with your clicker and have your cat pull out the toys one by one.
