Kaytu learned "paw" really quickly last night. Less than a minute and a half before she had her lightbulb moment. Denali was up on the couch so I was giving her treats for staying up there. Watch at 2:45 for a funny moment when Denali started to come down, I told her wait just as she was sliding off, so she tried to hop back up but couldn't do it.

Cute video! Looks like the whole family wanted to get in on the action...lol.
Very adorable kitty. I wish I could have a cat, unfortunately everyone except myself is allergic :(

Denali knows "paw" and "other" very well. Often when I'm training Kaytu she's on the couch and will follow along. When I was teaching Kaytu "side" (lay flat on her side) Denali was following along on the couch.

The cats know some tricks. The black cat can Sit, and I can also send him to the corner or tell him to sit in a box. The brown tabby cat knows Sit, Down, and Roll Over.

That's awesome! The first time I tried to teach Cody to shake and I grabbed his paw he started screaming like I was going to murder him! I guess it scared him, and he screaming scared me LOL! I've never had a dog react that way before.

I always try to encourage the dog to do it themselves, rather than physically manipulating them by grabbing their paw.
