If the dog doesn’t approach the AutoTrainer Base Unit to eat the kibble when it is dispensed, the device will “go to sleep” and emit a tone every 60 seconds to remind the dog that it’s listening/watching. If the dog eats kibble, the AutoTrainer Base Unit will “wake up” and restart where it left off in the session.Close
The AutoTrainer Collar should fit snugly to your dog’s neck, with the transmitter placed directly over your dog’s throat. This is to ensure that the AutoTrainer Collar detects the vibration and sound from your dog’s barking.Close
Unfortunately, you will need to separate the dog that is using the AutoTrainer from the rest of the pets. Only one dog should be able to access and hear the AutoTrainer at one time.Close
If the AutoTrainer Collar loses connection with the base AutoTrainer Base Unit as indicated in the LCD screen, restart the AutoTrainer Collar and AutoTrainer Base Unit at the same time while holding the ID button on the AutoTrainer Collar with the tip of a paperclip (or similar item) for 2 seconds. The ID will update immediately and the LCD should show an arrow over the AutoTrainer Collar icon.Close
No, the AutoTrainer will only function properly when dry kibble or dry/semi-dry treats are used.Close
While rare, this could potentially happen. If the food bounces out of the dish, your dog should eat it from the ground and could potentially go back to the dish to look for more food, signaling the Muzzle Detector to continue. If your dog does not check the dish, the Muzzle Detector will not indicate that the dog ate the treat, therefore will emit the reminder tone until the dog puts their muzzle in the dish. If you return home and the AutoTrainer Base Unit is beeping without a treat in the dish, simply record existing history from the AutoTrainer Base Unit and manually restart.Close
At first, it is possible that your dog may bark at the AutoTrainer Base Unit until they figure out the game, most commonly in Teach Me mode. Once in Calm Me mode, your dog should soon learn that this behavior delays the arrival of food. Once they’ve figured out the game, barking will decrease more and more.Close
