Training Siamese cats can be simple, as long as you understand how cats learn. They each learn differently depending on the experiences they've had. Depending on these experiences your cat may enjoy doing what you teach him or may dislike it entirely. It all depends on if his past training experiences were good or bad. Of course, the attention span, intelligence, and even curiosity levels of your cat will help to determine how quickly easy he will be to train.
Something to keep in mind when training Siamese cats is to be sure that you make it a pleasurable experience for him. A common mistake when training cats is to try to discipline the cat like a toddler. You shouldn’t use punishment as a training method. This could end up backfiring and probably won’t give you the results you're looking for. In fact, it may simply end up frightening your cat, making him aggressive, severing any bond that you have with him, and counter-acting any training that he may already have succeeded with.
An example of improper training is when a cat goes to the bathroom outside his litter box. Most people go about solving this problem the wrong way, such as putting their cat back inside litter box and forcing them to dig their claws into the litter. This is not a productive method of litter box training and should be avoided. It will give your cat a bad association with the litter box, and will make him think of it as a punishment. Instead of using punishments, try using a reward system.
If you don't want to deal with cleaning your cat's litter box, consider cat toilet training. It's a lot easier to teach cats than you might think!
When training Siamese cats or kittens, it's a good idea to learn how to keep cats away from certain areas in your home. If you keep them in the right surroundings, they are less likely to adopt any unwanted behaviors.
A technique that will discourage unwanted cat aggression when training cats is to grasp your cat by the scruff of the neck. This works well because it mimics how the mother cat would discipline her kittens, promoting submissive behavior.
If you see two cats engaged physically, you can simply throw a blanket or towel between them to break up the fight.
Important note: Do not attempt to do this if your cat is in a violent fight with another cat. If you do you are at risk of getting scratched or bit.
Important note: Don't pick up an adult cat by the scruff of the neck without providing hand support for him under his body. If you don't, the cat can end up with serious internal damage. Also, do not hold cats like this for any length of time. You always have to be gentle and patient when training cats.

Have you ever wanted to take your cat for a walk outside? It is possible with a little bit of patience on your part. You’ll need to buy a cat harness that fits comfortably, and have a lightweight cat leash with a secure clip on it.
Don't use a collar on your cat because he can easily slip out of it. You want the cat leash to tug on your cat's chest not his throat.
If you don't want to use a cat harness you can use something called a walking jacket. This is pretty much escape-proof, and comes with a lease attached at the middle of the back.

No matter what you are trying to train your cat to do the experience should be a fun and rewarding one for you and your pet. Using rewards rather than punishment means that you cat will start doing what you want him to out of choice rather than out of fear, which is what you should be aiming for.
