I work on clicker training with our dogs and horses. Pretty new at it but having fun and telling lots of people about it.

My 14-year old daughter has taught her kitten to play the piano, moonwalk, weave in and out of poles, climb a ladder, and he is now learning to ride a skateboard! they are becoming the fast friends she'd hoped - and more.

Hi Karen,
It's been going quite well. I am also on the emailing list. Our 2yr old Pyrate has been the most responsive. He's shaking hands, high fiving, beg position, Up, Down - and I got him to jump over an obstacle last night! Thanks for this great book.

Get the Cat to Catch On

NO SELF-RESPECTING cat would stoop so low as to do tricks on command - unless there was something in it for her. That's the concept behind clicker training - what scientists stuffily call "operant conditioning" - in which the cat actually thinks she's calling the shots. With a "click and treat" approach, you can teach your kitty to come when called, walk on a leash, and maybe even do a parlor trick or two. (Hey, if it works for the dolphins at Sea World, it'll work on Fluffy ) This cat-training clicker kit contains a book, instruction guide, treats and two clickers. Available for $16.95 from www.clickertraining .com or call 800-47- CLICK.
