Cats are definitely different than dogs.  The kitties are learning, but it doesn’t progress the way puppy learning does. 

One thing they are both good at is a sit stay on their mats. 

They lure well but I want to start fading the lure.  Since we’re feeding with spoons we have to transfer to following hands and not the spoon.  They are much more likely to follow a spoon or target stick than a hand right now.   So, they should lure & target well.  We’ve tried some shaping and Trick seems a bit better at it than Treat.  Treat just wanders away… 

Someone sent me a link to a great website by Sophia Yin that talks about cats and cat training.  Seems like it has some very good information there.
