Shake Trainer Review and Giveaway


Hi Neighbors!

Well as you know with a new puppy in the house we have been checking out different training methods. I found the Shake Trainer (approx. $29). It is to help stop dogs unwanted behavior in minutes. It is 100% humane. To be quite honest I assumed it was one of those trainer tools that you would toss to the ground to create a noise to stop certain behaviors. I was really surprised after watching the accompanying DVD. You need to watch the DVD before using the Shake Trainer. You actually spend time teaching the dog that when he/she hears the Shake Trainer, that it means a lack of reward.


You start by handfeeding your dog a couple of treats, then slowly lower a treat to floor level keeping the treat in your hand. As the dog starts to move for the treat quickly raise the trest away from your dog and shake the Shake Trainer using the proper movement. One quick up and down shake. Never use the Shake Trainer in your dogs face, or shake it when you are not using it for a particular purpose. Keep repeating a few times until you notice your dog hesitating to go for the treat. Then move to the next step. by repeating handing your dog a couple of treats. This time after 2-3 treats, actually lay one on the floor. If your dog approaches the treat, quickly pick it up and shake the Shake Trainer. Repeat until your dog no longer attempts to go for the treat.



Once you have trained your dog with Shake Trainer this far you are ready to start using the Shake Trainer to stop unwanted behavior. There are many behavioral issues listed in the little booklet and on the DVD that you should be able to use Shake Trainer with to change your dogs behavior. From barking, digging, housetraining, stealing food, etc. there are little hints on how to use the Shake Trainer.



Does your dog have a problem that you would like to clear up? Perhaps Shake Trainer is for you. Right now Webster, our pup, thinks Shake Trainer is a new toy. I guess we will have to keep working at it. You can find Shake Trainer on Amazon.

One neighbor will receive Shake Trainer to try for themselves. This giveaway will end 9/17 at 11:59 pm CST.

Honestly, what I learned is that the Shake Trainer is an electronic version of a penny can.

Max has a couple habits that we are working on. I'm sure the shake trainer is worth giving a try. Hopefully he won't think it's a chew toy.
