KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 11, 2014) – Cleaning up after your pet (27%), finding care for your dog when you’re at work (31%), potty training (9%), and odor (20%) remain on the list of top drawbacks to owning a dog as reported by the American Pet Products Association (APPA). PetSafe brand, a leading innovator in pet behavior and lifestyle solutions, is addressing these issues through an innovative, reward-based house training solution for pets.
Named by Dr. Marty Becker as one of “Becker’s Best” products at Global Pet Expo 2013, PetSafe’s Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System provides an easy, positive way to house train your dog. Ideal for pet owners living in apartments, condos, or lofts without private yards, the indoor potty training solution uses positive reinforcement to train dogs to use a pee pad.
A replaceable moisture detection pee pad is remotely connected to PetSafe’s Train ‘n Praise™ Treat Dispenser. The pad, which can absorb up to three cups of liquid, is made of six layers for extra protection, including a pet attractant layer, odor absorbing layer, and leak-proof bottom. When moisture is detected on the pad, a wireless signal is transmitted to the treat dispenser and treats or kibble are released, rewarding your dog for using the pee pad correctly and reinforcing the good behavior. A handheld remote is also included to aid with initial training or for an occasional treat at the owner’s discretion.
This effective and practical house training tool teaches your pet where it's okay to use the bathroom, even when you’re away from home. For pet parents who would like to travel with their dogs, the Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System alleviates the stress of having to find a convenient potty place and also enables training to continue wherever you go. Once potty training is completed, the treat dispenser and remote can be used for positively rewarding other behaviors, like not excessively barking at the door.
“PetSafe prides itself on developing innovative solutions to help pets and pet parents live happier and healthier lives together,” Randy Boyd, president and CEO of Radio Systems Corporation, makers of the PetSafe brand, said. “With house soiling being one of the most common reasons people surrender their dogs to an animal shelter, we believe the Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System is a great solution for pet parents looking to improve their dog’s behavior through positive reinforcement.”
The PetSafe Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System is available for $134.99 at PetSafe.net. The system includes the treat dispenser, remote transmitter, 10 moisture detection pee pads, pee pad clip, (4) AA batteries, (2) 3-volt lithium batteries (CR2032), and mounting hardware. Additional clips, pee pads, and optional power adapter are also available for purchase.
