HOW you can train your dog with our buzzers

Step 1

Choose words according to the action you want your dog to be able to communicate. We suggest starting with the core four; walk (toilet), food, water and play. Choose the words you most often say to your dog while performing these actions. After you have chosen, record yourself saying the command by using the switch located on the bottom of the buzzer.

Step 2

Place the buzzers together in a central point in your home, or place them individually in areas your dog may associate with each command. For example, put ‘walk’ beside the front door, ‘food’ beside their food bowl, ‘play’ beside their toys etc. Ensure the button placement is easily visible and accessible to your dog.

Step 3

Use during day-to-day life. When placing their food down or preparing for a walk, hit the corresponding buzzer. Use them along with your voice, to help your dog associate the buzzer with the activity. Repetition is key! Press the buzzer 2-3 times when performing the action and say it to your dog. Have their attention when you press the buzzer. Never force them to push the buzzers.

Step 4

Rewarding your pet. Positive reinforcement is a proven teaching method, so praising and rewarding your dog for using the buzzers will encourage the behaviour. Even if you feel it was not intentional, try to perform it with your dog straight away to enforce association.

Step 5

Patience. It will take time for your dog to understand what you are asking of it. Dogs of all ages are capable of learning to use the buzzers to communicate. With repetition and dedication, you will see impressive results and have a much better understanding of your pets wants and needs.

Great product, really easy to use our spaniel is currently mid training and these make the adventure a lot more fun. Would recommend for those who want to have some fun training with their pets.

Fantastic dog training product! I have been using the buzzers for around a week now and my dog is already responding well to the training! On initial delivery of the buzzers I was very impressed with the overall build quality, easy functionality and sound quality of the speaker... Can’t wait to continue with the training process!

Before, my mother’s Labrador Henry would rarely be able to communicate effectively to let you know he was ready to go outside to do his “business” but since introducing the buzzers, he now makes it clear when he needs to go out. Thinking of buying these again for my brothers bulldog Marcus for Christmas.

Took a couple of weeks until prince started using the buttons but now the fact we don't have to ask him what he wants is such a game changer! The training is so worth it you won't regret it!
