We posted a blog about one of our great potty training products last December, but August is such an important month for getting into a routine with back to school, etc. So if you are looking for a great way to potty train your pet, read on! “What do you mean I can’t pee in the house?!” Sometimes that's what I feel like my dogs are thinking when I tell them it’s time to go outside when it’s cold, snowing or there’s even a slight sprinkle of rain….you know, when they give the look and refuse to move. But I can’t blame them. I mean, if someone tried to make me walk outside to pee in the rain (or at all considering I’m a person), I’d definitely give the look, too. Great news for those of you with dogs like mine – you can now avoid the “stink eye” from your dogs with our new Train ‘n Praise™ Potty Training System! Not only is it useful in situations when the weather is less than ideal, but it’s also useful:
- When you’re away from home for long hours during the day
- During the night when your four-legged family members are insomniacs
- For potty training puppies
- For potty training rescue dogs that may not have been exposed to any house-training
- For senior dogs, or any dog, that may have limited mobility
- When potty training outside isn’t the best or most convenient option
We put the Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System to the test with a fabulous group of PetSafe® Idea Partners looking to potty train their dogs during an IHUT (In-Home Usage Test). Not all testers had the same goal in mind – some wanted to eventually train their dog(s) to potty outside, and some were looking to utilize the potty training system for a particular situation, like the ones listed above. The system was tested with dogs of all ages, from puppies to seniors. Since it can be used as a multiple dog training system, some of the IHUT participants even tested it with more than one dog in their household.
The Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System provides an easy way to potty train your dog(s) by using positive reinforcement to train your dog(s) to use a pee pad, whether you’re present or not. The potty training system uses a replaceable Moisture Detection Pee Pad that is remotely connected to the Train ‘n Praise Treat Dispenser – when moisture is detected on the pad a wireless signal is transmitted to the Treat Dispenser and treats are dispensed for your dog for a job well done! A Handheld Remote is also included to aid with initial training or for an occasional treat at the discretion of the humans of the house.
Here’s what one of our testers had to say about the Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System: “I love this product. I am so happy to report that she is no longer having accidents in the house. Priceless! She seems to be much happier. When she would have accidents in the house prior to using this product she would often hide and avoid interaction with anybody. The Train 'n Praise Potty Training System allowed us to change our daily routine a bit and definitely changed our relationship for the better. We are so very proud of her huge accomplishment!”
Once you get your potty training system, you’ll no longer have to worry about your dog eliminating in inappropriate areas of your home, or if your senior dog can get down the back steps to the yard. Or, if you live in an urban area and the only grassy area is a few blocks away or not convenient for a quick potty break, the Train ‘n Praise Potty Training System can help you potty train your dog indoors. Get yours today to potty train your dog(s) the easy way!
