Leo has responded well to clicker training and can sit on command. I am currently teaching hi 5 and he now realises when he paws me he gets a treat. My only issue is that he doesn't retract his claws when he is doing so. He rarely gets his claws apart from when he is grabbing food. How do I get him to carry on doing this hi 5 but with no claws? Not sure how to encourage this.

You say, "Leo, no claws." LOL. And like most cats, Leo has no idea what you mean! :biggrin:

I taught Magic to give me his paw like a dog would, this way there is no claws and he gets a treat.

Having a bit more trouble teaching Pearl this but she is still young.
