PetSafe Treat 'n Train
Remote Reward Dog Trainer
Dogs repeat behaviors that are rewarded. The Treat and Train Remote Reward Dog Trainer is a remote-controlled reward system that uses positive reinforcement for training dogs to behave at home and perform better in competition.
By rewarding desired behaviors, the system can be an invaluable tool in helping redirect a dog’s focus away from barking at the door, jumping on guests and begging at the table.
Good training can be quickly undone by well-meaning family and friends. Initially, practise training where there are minimal distractions. Once the task has been learnt, gradually introduce distractions to test the learning. An important principle of dog training is gaining and keeping a dog’s attention. You cannot teach a dog anything until you have mastered attention training. Before anything else, train your dog to give you its undivided attention and eye contact.
Trainers must acknowledge that all training imposes restrictions on a dog’s freedom to some degree. Owners then have a moral obligation to give something back to balance this loss and maintain their dog’s quality of life. If you train a dog not to chase squirrels you need to throw a lot of balls for it to chase instead.
Premier Treat & Train Remote Reward Dog Trainer is a remote-controlled reward system that uses positive reinforcement for training dogs to behave appropriately at home. The Electronic tool teaches calm behavior in distracting situations like visitors at the door, the family dinner table or left alone in a crate; Teaches dogs to focus on you with engaging, interactive games that provide exercise and mental stimulation; Teach dogs at a distance to perform almost any behavior, from everyday skills (such as potty training) to specialized skills (such as agility, obedience, service and military work). Do not use this product with dogs less than 6 months old, those unable to reach the feeding dish or those with any physical disability

Premier Treat & Train Remote Reward Dog Training System is an incredibly useful dog training aid for all dog owners with innovative and unique design. This new remote dog training aid lets you control your pet's behavior using obedience commands issued by a hand-held remote. Treat & Train Remote Reward Dog Training System reward your dog's good behavior instantly by remote control, and it automatically feeds a treat every few minutes while you are gone. You can always combine your dog's favorite treats with this remote reward training system. The Premier Treat & Train System includes: Hand-held remote that can operate on 4 separate channels, and which allows you to work from a distance of up to 100 ft and even through walls. Target training wand with detachable base to teach tricks, heeling, and jumping. Two treat dispenser disks for different sized kibble or treats of uniform small sizes. Dr. Yin's illustrated training manual and DVD. Rugged, dog-proof housing measures 16 x 7 x 8 inches; it weighs 3.5 lbs. and is remarkably stable. It will run for about four months on 4 D batteries. The remote control runs on an included 23A-12V battery. How Treat & Train Remote Reward Training System Works: Manners Minder replaces the pet's old bowl, holding and dispensing your dog's kibble. Food can be dispensed by remote control (which sounds an audible tone) or automatically in programmed intervals (e.g., later in the program when your dog's desired behavior is to stay quietly in one place). You'll learn to use Manners Minder's "tone and treat" techniques along with visual cues and verbal cues so your dog will clearly understand the good behavior you want.
All parts are included.

2. If your machine seems slow/weak and has a hard time rotating, get it replaced. My second machine is a dream compared to the first model I received.
1. Like another review stated, use a dremel and remove the outside lip of the treat dispenser circles. It isn't pretty but it works. I attached a photo of what I did to mine --- I can use any type of treat that fits through the hole now! Sometimes the kibble builds up like at the bottom of the photo without that edge, but that won't happen as long as you keep it semi-full. :)
Absolutely love this after getting a replacement and fixing the edge. It's SO much fun!!
I have spent countless hours training Fido with positive rewards by hand, watched the videos, and read Dr. Yin's book, How to Behave So Your Dog Behaves, prior to using the device. Because you control the Treat & Train, it's important that you understand the basic principles of training with positive rewards. The quick start guide and manual are easy to follow, as long as you know that you should be reading it to succeed. The manual and DVD are a complete crash course for training your dog to behave correctly, and some chapters don't even involve the Treat and Train. This material is excellent and I give it 5 stars.
In my first training session, I followed the instructions and Fido rapidly took to the T&T. Before the cup of kibble was gone, he learned that to get a reward, he had to look at me. When I started by placing treats in the dish, Fido immediately laid down in front of the T&T. It didn't take long for him to like it, and what's not to like with a machine that gives food. What took longer was for him to realize that I was the one controlling it. Once he did, the treats started dispensing rapidly and I worked him up to playing the tone. On the lowest volume, I found the tone volume to be appropriate and not too loud. Someone was sleeping in the room while I used it, and they didn't wake up. So, I'm thinking this T&T is great. I can watch the NBA finals while training the dog, and there's no slobber on my hands.
Then it jammed. Kibble was stuck in the dispense shoot and ring. It was easy to fix, but here's the thing. The T&T is primarily marketed as a tool to hold your reactive dog's attention while answering the door and letting visitors into your home. Well, neither the Pizza guy nor your dinner guest wants a jam to occur during a live training exercise. I investigated why it was jamming and it seems that some of my kibbles are just a bit too large. I think the wheel design has changed since the review recommending using a dremel tool to grind down a protrusion. I don't see anything causing the jam other than the diameter of the hole. I could probably bore out the hole with a drill bit. I switched to the larger-holed wheel, and haven't had a jam yet, but it now dispenses 3 kibbles per reward on average, rather than 1. Given all the science going on here, would it kill somebody to provide the optimal kibble dimensions for each wheel? Why can't we purchase wheels with alternate hole diameters?
As a tool to prevent me from getting Fido's saliva all over my hands and allowing me to do other things while also training, it's worth it. Do you need this device to train your dog, no. If you want, you can perform the job of the T&T by using a marker word, "yes", and manually delivering treats. If you need this to hold Fido's attention while answering the door and bringing guest into your home, then you better find the right kibble-hole diameter combination. For Call of the the Wild (red bag) the smaller one will jam and the bigger one will deliver 3 kibbles per reward on average.
After spending several months building a foundation for weaves, I was able to place the Manners Minder at the exit of the weave poles. The dog learned right away if she did the weaves correctly - TREAT! I can send her to the weaves, which she will now complete flawlessly regardless of my whereabouts - NO babysitting the weave poles anymore! And for whatever it's worth, I DO NOT have a breed which is thought of as an "agility breed" (i.e. Border Collie, Sheltie, Aussie). Previously, I had a target saucer at the end of the weaves with a treat. But if the dog did not do the weaves correctly, she could usually beat me to the saucer and snatch up the treat before I could get there. This is the best training aid I have used with nearly twenty-five years of training dogs.
Occasionally the unit can jam depending on the type of food being used, but opening the unit and using your hand to manually rotate the mechanism will easily clear the jam.
The unit is fairly dog proof. My dog is very skilled at extracting food from various containers, He is able to get into this unit if left alone, but luckily he doesn't damage it in the process.
When I want to make the unit more secure (e.g. when I leave the room so I can use the remote from a different room), I put the unit into a case which prevents the food storage door from opening.

The big plus point though is the additional training options it gives you. I have a 4 yr old high energy border collie and the ability for me to be in one place and the treat to be dispensed in another is immense. For example, send aways training was impossible without an additional person. With the treat trainer it is easy - it took the dog a couple of minutes to learn the routine and a couple of days of 5 minutes training and I could send away to the trainer and not even give a treat. He just waits. I can keep him there as long as I want just by giving him another treat if it looks like his attention is wandering. Training for front door answering was easy - the unit is in the kitchen; the door bell rings, I press the remote, the treat trainer beeps, the dog now goes to the kitchen and gets his treat :)
Support material is very good but after a while I found with a bit of creativity I found I could create my own training exercises using the trainer.
When I get it out to use, the dogs are very excited, they like working with it.
It is a kind way to train and makes the dog think for him/herself. I wish I had got one a long time ago.
