These are brand new. I'll update the description with my favourite treat options and tips as I try different things!
So far, cheese sticks and Tribal dog roll are a success! It’s very nice to be able to use a super-stinky treat and not get super-stinky hands 🙌
Made in Finland, the Train'N'Treat Dog Treat Dispenser combines a subtle clicking sound with the ability to offer your dog a treat from "your hand" in a quick, easy, and clean way. It's an excellent tool for training your dog, and the convenient, one-handed operation allows you to use the Train'N'Treat even with gloves on.
The Train'N'Treat cuts a larger piece of food into slices that are a perfect sized reward for training. You can load the Train'N'Treat with string cheese, hotdogs, slices of dog meat rolls, or even cucumbers; any softish treat that's a maximum of 3/4" diameter and 4" in length will work. You can get up to 25 treats from a 4"-long piece of food.
The Train’N’Treat is made to last. The body is made of DuraSense biocomposite (not plastic) that is food-contact approved and the metal parts are made of high-quality stainless steel. And it's dishwasher safe so it's easy to clean.

Here are the FAQ
Q: Can I feed my hotdogs to my dog?
A: In small amounts, a dog will be just fine. However, you cannot substitute your dog’s meal with sausage. Please take care not to give your dog too many treats of any kind. From one 10cm (4”) small sausage you’ll get 20 treats.
Q: Can I load Train'N'Treat with anything else than hotdog meant for human?
A: Yes you can. Many kinds of treats are OK to be used with Train'N'Treat. You can also use (soft) Meat Rolls, Cheese, Cucumber, Apple etc. as long as it is not too hard or rubbery, to avoid need of using two thumbs for operation.
Q: The treat pouch I use also has room for poop bags and a water bottle etc. This doesn’t seem to work with Train’N’Treat.
A: True. There is no space for other items in our device, but it is easy to carry anywhere you go, even in a pocket or using lanyard. Did you know that you can carry one poop bag inside the Train’N’Treat handle? Roll the bag and push it inside the handle. Make sure that part of the bag remains visible so you can get it out easily.
Q: How long can I store the treat in Train’N’Treat?
A: It depends on the temperature. When you are not using your loaded Train’N’Treat, we recommend that you store it in the fridge. However it is best to empty the device after every use.
Q: Why is the clicking sound of Train’N’Treat so much lower than that of other clickers?
A: We designed Train’N’Treat to be used also in urban environments and not to draw much attention. It is said that a dog’s sense of hearing is eight times better than yours.
Q: What hotdogs do you recommend?
A: Skinless, meaty hotdogs work best. Please choose a product with the lowest possible salt content and no onions or other spices. The maximum diameter of the sausage is about 21 mm (7/8”).
Please note that you can also use (soft) Meat Rolls, Cheese, Cucumber, Apple etc.
Q: What is biocomposite or the biobased material mentioned on your product package?
A: The DuraSense ™ wood fiber-based composite material we use is made by Stora Enso in Sweden. In this material, plastic has been largely replaced with wood fibers. It is as strong and sustainable as wood and has a significantly smaller carbon footprint than plastic.
Q: Why should I use Train’N’Treat instead of the clicker and treat pouch I already have?
A: The clicker and the treat pouch work excellently in training. You also get to choose the treats you want. Train’N’Treat is designed to be easily taken anywhere. Your hands, pockets/bags stay clean and you can use it even with gloves on. It also helps to protect your fingers from sharp teeth.
Q: Can it dispense dry kibble, or would the kibble get stuck?
A: I'm afraid it can't. It would just crunch them. You can use Train'N'Treat with rod-like, moist treats or small sausages (hot dogs).
