How to train a cat

Thursday, December 14, 2006

In this video a cat named Zimba is clicker trained by Richard Norton to operate a light switch.The clicker has previously been established as a conditioned reinforceer for operant behaviour and Zimba has earlier experience with this type of training with a clicker. The training consisted of short approximately 5 min sessions over a period of 3 days. All the training was videotaped. The total training time to get the results you see at the end of the video was 28 minutes and 34 seconds.

In the beginning any approach to the switch results in a click followed by food.After approaching the switch is established contact with the switch is required for a click.

So if you want to train your cat, you can start to learn something from this movie.
