PetSafe Train N Praise Potty Training System Train 'n Praise provides an easier way of house training your dog. As your dog pees on the replaceable pee pad, the moisture alerts an internal sensor in the pad which wirelessly transmits a signal to the treat dispenser. The treat dispenser then releases treats/kibble, rewarding your pet for using the pee pad (instead of your floor). Moisture is trapped in the bottom layer of the pee pad, leaving your floor clean and dry. This effective and practical house training tool teaches your pet where it's okay to use the bathroom, and it lets you continue your dog's potty training even when you're away. Features: Teaches your dog to use a training pee pad with a treat dispenser 6 highly absorbent leak-proof pads On/off switch for longer battery life Handheld remote activates the treat dispenser up to 25 feet away Pee pads made of 6 layers for extra protection Water-resistant pad control unit easily attaches and reattaches to new pee pads Treat dispenser can be used with or without an audible tone that lets your dog know a treat is coming Wall-mounted or free standing treat dispenser For indoor use only Water-resistant Pad Control Unit Low-battery indicator Works with dry kibble or treats up to 1/2 inch in size (slightly smaller than a dime)System Includes: Treat dispenser Remote transmitter 10 moisture detection pee pads Pee pad clip 4 AA batteries 2 3-volt lithium battery (CR2032) Mounting hardware Product manualBasic Potty Training Steps Place your dog on the pee pad when he normally has to use the bathroom. The best times are before bedtime, first thing in the morning, and after eating or drinking. When your dog is on the center of the pad, say a cue word such as "Bathroom" and give a treat from your hand. Next, practice treating your pet with the dispenser. Every time your pet pees on the pad, use the handheld remote to dispense a treat. Attach the pee pad clip to the pad. Every time your pet pees on the pad, the dispenser will automatically give him a treat. Your dog's potty training can continue even when you're away, for a consistent, effective training experience. Most pets learn quickly in 2-4 weeks to use the pee pad.
