Another Advancement

We all like to think that animals, even wild animals, do what they are asked because they love us.  In reality, it’s all about food.  Along with the food you have to get the animal’s attention for successful training.  

This small clicker does the trick.  The sound becomes associated with a treat so Tommy T will come when he hears it, receive a treat for doing so, and we are on our way towards a well-trained cheetah ambassador.

Welcome to Tommy T’s first “clicker training” session! 

Exhibit A:

one clicker and small portions of Tommy T’s dinner

You can even try this with your house cat!
