These guys are professionals. The amazing Acro-Cats are absolute proof that positive clicker-based training can work wonders – even with cats. The Acro-Cats are a pretty mixed bag. From the white, bell-ringing star, Tuna, to the tabby keyboardist, Nue, to sleek black tightrope-walking Buggles, these fabulous felines could just have easily been ordinary housecats, lounging around the house.
But Samantha Martin had bigger dreams for these little guys – not only to have them perform, but also to show that cat training can be done. Samantha uses clicker training, a positive system in which the cats are consistently rewarded for specific behaviors. Her cats take training success to the extreme, jumping through hoops, playing instruments, and ringing bells, but Samantha emphasizes that clicker training can improve the lives of everyday cats and their humans.
Samantha Martin and her troupe of trained cats (and other animals) made a stop in St. Cloud, MN to show off their most unique partnership. Here are some show highlights.
