Dog Training By Remote: Premier 'Manners Minder' Remote Controlled Treat Dispenser
Whether you're training your dog to jump hoops or just trying to get him to stay away from the door when the doorbell rings, you'll appreciate having the help of the ingenious Manners Minder Treat & Train Remote Reward Dispenser for your dog. It works so well you may decide your old dog does need to learn some new tricks.
Most dogs love to be trained, and all dogs respond well to treats as rewards. Now, you might think, as I did, why do I need to have a machine to reward my dog when I can carry his treats with me to reward his good behavior?
Why? Because there are times when his best behavior is to be away from you... like when he's not going with you to open the door for your guests, like when he's not jumping up on them, or like when he's not begging for food at the table while you're eating.
Of course, you should always carry some treats with you for the times you two need to be close; the Manners Minder doesn't replace your personal reward system, it enhances it. It broadens the experiences you can have with your dog and she and you will have fun using it. Just see how the remote training system can train your dog in the Manners Minder video below....
Developed by animal behaviorist and veterinarian, Dr. Sophia Yin, the Manners Minder package includes the treat dispenser, with two fixtures for different size kibble; an extendable target wand; a hand-held remote that controls the dispenser from up to 100 feet away; a printed instruction book; and an instructional DVD which will help you to behavior train your dog, as well as teach her a few tricks. It's a great package for a very reasonable price, available at Amazon.com.
