Whether it’s potty-training, putting a stop to biting, or teaching to roll over, most dog owners know training takes time. For Alysha Rice, PetChatz training has been as easy as 1, 2, 3. Barker, her 2-year-old white dachshund, learned to use the device in only a matter of days.

Alysha is not just a regular dog mom; she’s a “cool dog mom.” So naturally, when she had an opportunity to win a PetChatz unit in a contest, she took it – and her (and Barker’s) life hasn’t been the same since.

“Barker is so full of energy and loves to play fetch – and he especially loves treats! We’ve only had our PetChatz for five days, so he still stands next to the device or too close to the camera from time to time, but he’s learning. Of course, he’s already picked up on where the treats come from. He even paws for treats or tries to hit the manual treat button with his nose!”

But Barker (a.k.a. Beeb, B, Bdawg, BB, and Crooky Paws) isn’t the only one who loves PetChatz. Alysha agrees that it’s a great invention that has brought her even closer to her beloved dog.

“PetChatz has changed my relationship with Barker. I now have the ability to call him, see what he’s doing and give him treats all while I’m working or running errands. It’s helped me be able to love my pet from afar.”
