PetSafe Teach & Treat Remote Reward Trainer – Dog Behavior Training Device



Teaching your dog(s) the difference between good and bad behaviors isn't always that easy. From teaching your dog basic impulse controls such as not getting constantly anxious or alarmed, teaching them not to bark excessively, not to pee on the furniture and/or carpets, as well as training your dog to go outside on a daily basis, and even teaching them not to pull the leash during your walks with them, there's really a lot of different good behaviors that dogs need to learn, right from the time when they're still little pups all the way to adulthood. Still, when it comes to the entire process of teaching your dog multiple different good behaviors, dogs are pretty much just like people. Depending on each dog's breed, they'll have many different personality traits that can ultimately make it harder for dog owners to teach their pups a specific good behavior that they want them to have. That's when having a device like the PetSafe Teach & Treat Remote Reward Trainer can really come in handy.


The PetSafe Teach & Treat Remote Reward Trainer is a battery-powered and remote-controlled reward-based behavior training device for dogs that allows dog owners to easily reward their pups whenever they show good behaviors, featuring a treat-dispensing functionality that works via interchangeable treat dispensing disks from which small or large-sized kibble or premium treats can be dispensed up to 30 yards away, while also coming together with a collapsible target accessory that can be used for training good behaviors, for games, and even for more advanced activities.



This behavior training device for dogs is ideal for teaching dogs of all ages new skills as well as for practicing already-existing good behaviors and helping pups improve on them, thus making it a perfect dog training tool for dog owners who want to have a hands-on role in training their dogs. With it, dog owners can easily teach their dogs important good behaviors like sitting, staying, keeping calm, and even responding to different verbal commands.


Now, let's have a slightly more detailed look at the PetSafe Teach & Treat Remote Reward Trainer and check out exactly how this behavior training device for dogs is designed to work.


DESIGN & SPECS


Starting with the device's size, the unit is lightweight and portable, which makes it easy to store away when not in use, and also fairly easy to carry around from one room to another if necessary.



The device features a minimalist and modern design that allows it to blend in quite easily within any room, and also packs a fairly durable construction, as its outer shell is made of a sturdy TPU plastic material.


At the bottom-side of the device, there's a removable feeding tray onto which the device's stored kibble / pet treats are dispensed from its kibble storage compartment (which is located at the middle of the device and can be accessed from its top side via a lid) via one of two (x2) interchangeable food disks (one for dispensing small and the other one for dispensing large kibble / treats).



For dispensing those kibble / treats, the device utilizes a built-in quiet motor.


Lastly, note that the device's removable feeding tray is rated to be dishwasher safe.

The device's main control panel can be found located at the top-right of the unit's interface, while there's also a volume switch located at the middle of its interface that can be used to easily adjust the device's different sound queues (i.e. little non-harmful sound tones) that are used to create a multi-sensory experience (when used together with the device's collapsible target accessory) to help your dog understand and ultimately learn good behaviors.



Located directly above its volume switch, there's also a built-in battery status LED that informs users about the unit's currently battery-level.


Finally, at the top-left corner of the device's interface, there's also a built-in storage slot that can be used to safely store the unit's dedicated remote control when dog owners aren't operating the device for training their dogs.

For its power, the device requires a total of four (x4) D batteries (which do not come included in its package).

The device's accessories simply include the unit's dedicated remote control, plus a collapsible target accessory that can be used for training good behaviors, for playing games with your dog, and even for more advanced activities.
