When you are training your dog, making sure to give them a reward at the right time can be one of the toughest aspects of the training process. This can be especially true when you are working on a trick or command that requires your dog to be further away from you. And for those who have cats, training is even more challenging. Fortunately, with some time, patience, and positive reinforcement, you can train your pet. This Treat and Train remote food dispenser from PetSafe can make all the difference.
This device has gone viral on TikTok and TikToker and cat owner @clickerkittens shows how effective the dispenser can be. Although the cats were initially startled by the noise of the dispenser, they quickly learned that the noise was a positive thing — that it meant tasty treats were on the way.
Start with a simple command or task, such as touching a target. As soon as your pet touches the target, release a treat with the remote. Before long, your pet will learn to follow the command — even if you are on the other side of the room. Plus there is no limit to the things you can teach your pet to do. @clickerkittens also used the device for station training. This is also ideal training for dogs to teach them not to beg for food at the table or rush toward guests that enter your home.
PetSafe Treat & Train includes the food, treat dispenser, and remote. The training system was developed by Dr. Sophia Yin and the box also includes a training wand with a base and a booklet and DVD with step-by-step instructions. They don't leave you on your own to figure out the best way to use the device and train your dog with the Treat & Train. That way, you and your pet can get the most out of your training sessions using this product.
