2. The ‘Up’ Position

You may have seen “dancing” cats on commercials or on television. This is another trick most cats can learn.

After your cat has mastered the ‘sit’ command, you can easily move her into the ‘up’ position. Simply hold the food high above her head, repeating your “up” command. Once she has stood on her hind legs, praise her and give her the well-deserved treat.

To take this a step further, once she is up, slowly turn your hand in a circular motion to mimic the “dance” trick. This may take some practice on your cat’s part, but with repetition, she will be ready for dancing with the (feline) stars.
