Today’s session is for both my human and I. 🐱 👩‍🏫 My human needs to practice how to *smoothly* put on the buckle, and I need to learn to have patience while she fiddles around with my neck and harness... 😒
How’s your training going??? 🧐

‘Piggyback’ or ‘Pick pack’? 🐷
Back in the 16th century, goods were transported in packs that people carry on theirs or animal’s backs. They called it ‘pick pack’ because you would pick up the pack in order to put it on your back. ‘Pick pack’ became ‘pick-a-pack’;
‘Pick-a-pack’ became ‘pick-a-back’;
‘Pick-a-back’ became ‘pick-i-back’;
‘Pick-i-back’ became today’s ‘piggyback’. 🤷‍♀️ #feedyourbrain

Today’s training for me to be fond of the motion of wearing a harness. The harness now wraps 360° around my neck?! 🙀
My human says I will be okay and having it touching all around my neck means a click💥+treats. 😺 ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ #cattraining #desensitising #animaltraining #clickertraining #positivereinforcement #bestcat #harnesstraining #catskills #cattricks #bonding #trustbased #treats #catsofinstagram #catsofmelbourne #catstagram #catoftheday #adopted #adoptdontshop #melbourne #melbournecat

In today’s Harness Training session, my human taught me that the bearing the weight of the harness on my back equals click💥+treats!
Gradually, I am getting used to the sensation and weight of the harness on the back of my neck, and my human thinks that I am ALMOST ready to have my harness buckled on!!! 💪
How exciting!!! 😽 ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ #cattraining #positivereinforcement #clickertraining #harnesstraining #leashtraining #cattraining #cattrainer #animaltrainer #desensitisation #behaviourshaping #catsofinstagram #catsofmelbourne #catstagram #catoftheday #adopted #adoptdontshop #melbourne #melbournecat

The consequences of staying up all night for fun and games include grogginess, difficulty in keeping your eyes open and occupancy of the couch for a prolonged period of time. 😴 Other than that, there are no significant side effects and our food bowls will still be automatically refilled in a timely matter. 🤷‍♀️ Let’s do it again tonight. 😎🤙

Harness Training 3! 🤟
In this session, my human concentrated on teaching me to like the sensation of the harness on my neck and back, for longer and longer periods of time.⏱️ At this stage, I am quite happy with her dragging the harness around my neck/back area. It is just like a back scratch, with click💥+treats!!!! Have you gotten your harness yet? Show us how’s your training is going! 👨‍🏫 And are you a 🐱🐶🐰🐹🐦 or 🦖? Apparently harness training for all animals are the same!!! 🤔

I hope you’ve enjoyed our first video of Harness Training. Here’s the second one of the series! 🤗
Today, my human focused on desensitising me from the feeling of the harness brushed against my beautiful fur. I learnt that no matter where the harness touched me - back of my head, my neck, my chest, etc - I get an immediate click💥+treat.
I am happy, and my human is happy. Life is great! 😺

I used to love my harness, but after a few occasions when my humans strapped it onto me without my consent (because we were in a rush to go for walkies), I hate it now. 😡
My human feels guilty and now she’s trying to make up for it by teaching me how to love my harness again. 💕
Join us for a series of Harness Training videos, and together, we shall let our humans teach us how to love our not-so-scary harnesses. 🤗 In each video, your human will be taught how to progressively introduce the harness to us. 🐱 Each step should be done multiple times over short, regular and frequent training sessions. ☝️
The cat harness we use is from #Rogz, but the training for any harness is practically the same. So get your harness and clicker now and start training! 🔊Turn sound on to hear when exactly a click💥+treats are given. Timing is crucial! 💪 Tag your friends who might be interested in walking their cat like a normal cat person one day! 🤗

Oreo is submitting her video to @cat.school for an opportunity to win a scholarship! I think we totally deserve the scholarship because: ☝️ Our tunnel is super low - only 10cm low! ✌️ Our tunnel is twice the length of Oreo and she went through it twice! 🤟 Oreo is toooo cute!!! 😻
With the scholarship, my human can learn proper training skills ➡️ train our foster kittens to be #trickkittens ➡️ find them their furrever homes more quickly!!! ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ #cattrick #scholarship #wedeserveit #kittensofmelbourne #kittensofinstagram #kittenoftheday #animaltraining #positivereinforcement #cattraining #cattrainer #animaltrainer #fosterkitten #catsofinstagram #catsofmelbourne #catstagram #catoftheday #adopted #adoptdontshop #melbourne #melbournecat
