Are you looking for a useful command to teach your curious kitty? How to lie down is a good one. If you have the need at any time for your cat to stay where they are, such as if you spill a noxious cleaning chemical when cleaning a paintbrush, “lie down” is a good command to know to keep them out of harm's way.A cat who knows the “sit” command should transition pretty easily to the lying down position when asked. Keeping in mind that cats have a mind of their own when it comes to day to day living, they do have the intelligence to learn a lot of things! Convincing these lovable and independent furry beings to do as you ask is the fun part of any training session.
Mental stimulation is a welcomed activity for your pet who may consider learning to lie down a fun game. Teaching your furry buddy to lie down is handy for grooming time and keeping them still when needed.
What cat can resist their most-loved treat? Before beginning a cat training session, stock up on yummy treats that will have your favorite cat cooperating. Keep your voice cheerful as you train, never let frustration be a part of the training and always end on a high note with a fun session afterward. Keep your cat coming back for more!
