  • Has helped me and my dog tremendously with training

    By on

    I've waited about 4 months to write my review for this item because I wanted to have a complete experience to report. Having an exuberant dog that even 1 hour daily walks, treadmill training and using traditional food puzzles and dispensers didn't seem to calm in the slightest, this has been a gem! Upon first inspection, I thought it was merely a remote controlled food dispenser with a few options to increase calm and patience with a positive training protocol. But, I THOROUGHLY READ THE MANUAL and WATCHED the DVD. It is a complete training package to improve your dog's behavior and particularly manners. It has become our routine twice a day, for 15 minutes or less, every day to do the exercises I've waited about 4 months to write my review for this item because I wanted to have a complete experience to report.

It has become our routine twice a day, for 15 minutes or less, every day to do the exercises. There are even options for when you personally need to take a session off but your dog can keep working! Some others have commented on how the DVD is worth every penny by itself, we wholeheartedly agree in our home. The key is not to make any assumptions or take any shortcuts and constantly review the proper techniques. We love that the DVD shows you both what to do and not to do. It's so handy to rewind constantly. We probably watched some segments 10+ times. After a year of what felt like trying everything, we consulted a veterinary behaviorist who introduced us to the Treat and Train. It's wonderful to have a product and process that feel fool-proof and positive. As for the product jamming, we just can't complain about that. There are multiple sizes of the spinners that allow the food to be dispensed and we have had it jam very few times. It's most likely to jam as the food/treats diminish to the last few. We use Zignature kibble at meal times with the Treat and Train and use Zuke's Natural Minis when we do an extra session with treats and very few problems...less than 10% of the time. We feel by following the training methods provided and using the Treat and Train, we made more progress in just a couple of days than months of training without it. We give it the highest accolades. We're appreciative of Dr. Yin, her techniques and her remote dispenser...so are guests when they come to our home! … more

  • Remote training

    By on

    Love this. It releases a treat remotely as many times as you press the remote and carries 1-2 cups of treats so you never run out in the middle of training. My dogs go crazy when they see it because they know they will be training and receiving rewards for their efforts. I bought 2 and am thinking of getting 1 more. Best remote trainer I've used.

  • Great training tool

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    It took my dog about 48 hours before he wasn't scared of the Manners Minder. Since then, however, he loves it and gets very excited when it comes out. He has become a better behaved dog since the Manners Minder entered his life!

  • Really great product

    By on

    I really like this machine. I tried cheerios at first and my dog was not crazy about them. Then I tried her kibble. She was not thrilled with this either. So next I am going to try a Primal product which is small round jerky. It will be a little more expensive than I want, but I think she will go for that.

  • Not sturdy enough to last

    By on

    I loved my Treat & Train for teaching independence on weave poles and other obstacles, but under normal use it broke less than a year after purchase.

  • Treat and Train

    By on

    I ordered this item on a Thursday. It arrived on Friday! The only problem is that the battery for the remote wasn't included in the box. Easy to use, and it didn't take our shy dog long to like it.

  • Great for food motivated pets

    By on

    Used on my 10 wk puppy who I had did prior manner training at meal time so this was basically used to take this training to the next level. It works great. Plan to use to reduce unnecessary barking. Used target tool to introduce come command on my 10 week old puppy outside today and it worked great (feed treats from hand once he touched the target).

  • Product does exactly what it says it does

    By on

    This was suggested by a fellow agility competitor and I used this in training my Australian Shepherd. She was not driving forward through the agility poles & was not enjoying herself. I used The Manners Minder and within a week she was driving though and really enjoying herself. She gets so excited when I take this off the shelf in the morning. Now I'm going to try some of the suggested training in the instruction guide with my other dogs as well.

  • Great for helping my dogs with impulse control!

    By on

    Great product to use for training and working on impulse control behaviors such as guests or workers coming to our home, settling behaviors or anytime you want calm behavior. You can use it for many other training needs, but that is what I am focusing on right now.

  • Amazing!

    By on

    This is awesome! The remote works from all the way in another room. I just need to get a little bigger of treats because the small ones make the spinner get jammed. My dog loves this and started obeying in a day with its help!
