Cat trick: Teach your cat to wave with clicker training.

Did you enjoy teaching your cat to fist bump or high five?

If so, this tutorial is a cool way to start challenging your cat. When we want to make a behavior more challenging, trainers often refer back to the three D's: distance, distraction and duration. Wave is basically high five at a distance. The cool thing about distance is that you can always make it harder by cueing the cat from further away.

What do you need: A clicker, some treats and a the same container you used to teach fist bump. 

To be successful at this trick I recommend the following purrequisites: sit and fist bump. It would also be helpful if your cat knew how to stay on a spot so if you are having a hard time with your cat moving forward you would want to work on sit/stay. If you are using clear communication with your clicker they should be able to grasp this one. 

Have fun training!
