My dogs are weird. But in all fairness, I am too. Between the dogs being picky about training treats and my disgust at having my hands covered in dog food, it is ridiculously difficult for both positive reinforcement trainer and trainee to treat and be treated effectively. I also have some sort of issue with every one of the dozen or so training treat pouches I have tried. Too many pouches are bulky, uncomfortable, spill when the dogs and I are active or are too difficult to quickly get treats from. Then there's my weird dogs turning their nose up at a treat they may have considered a high value or jackpot reward just days before. So the training treat struggle of my odd issues coupled with crazy dogs goes. My search for training treats that work for all of us seems never ending.
The second TreatToob I tried worked wonderfully. With gentle pressure, the pumpkin puree came out slowly and evenly. Maybe it was my determination to find a way to like TreatToob or that I had worked a little on getting the dogs over the fear of the treat dispenser that started when pumpkin squirted all over them but my guess is that the makers of TreatToob, Paww, has less than reliable quality control. Whatever the reason our second TreatToob seems to work so much better, the dogs and I are both very pleased. Pumpkin has been a treat that all three dogs have consistently liked to the ability to bring it anywhere as a reward will make a huge positive reinforcement training difference for us all. I carry a clicker everywhere but without the ability to always tote treats, I rarely click outside of formal training sessions. Both trainer and trainee will have more fun enjoying spontaneous training while we're out and about.
