My Pet Product Idea of the Week: Clicker-Treat-Holder

February 22, 2010 at 9:47 pm 9 comments

I know, I am such a dork.  But last night, when I saw Wes fumbling with a clicker and handful of treats , and then again this morning when I was carrying mail in one hand and leash in the other,  clumsily trying to get at the treats hanging from my waist,  I said to myself – There has to be an easier way. Somebody needs to come up with something that makes clicker-training more convenient. This is why I often leave my clicker at home when we go on walks (and use a verbal marker “Yes!” instead) – There’s just too much stuff to carry!

Of course I am clueless about the mechanism behind a gadget like this one. Someone tell me – is this even possible?

    I would buy this product immediately! I have such trouble dealing with the clicker and treats that I just gave up on the clicker.

      I would too! At home it’s not a problem, but when I am outside with Boogie on a leash, it is awkward.

      I have a Treatkeep attached to my waist for treats but it is so OBVIOUS – not a good look – and still inconvenient because I need two hands to open it.

    Good idea! But the clicker has to be kind of big? Like a tic tac size at least???

      Well…the clicker that I have now is almost tic tac size anyway…

      My company invented the Clicker Leash to make clicker training easier and more convenient. You can check it out at http://www.clickerleash.com. We also offer free training videos on the site to make the science behind clicker training easier to understand too! http://www.clickerleash.com

        That’s a great idea but it looks huge… any chance you could someday fit a “treat storage” compartment in there? 🙂

    Hi Lili,
    I could see that being Clicker Leash 3.0 🙂 We are currently working on version 2.0 which will address the size issue that some people have with the current model which is comparable to large Flexi leash but MUCH lighter weighing in at under 6 ounces. We are Canadian so we designed the original version to accommodate mittens in the winter.
    If you are on Facebook, feel free to sign up to our fan page so we can let you know when future models role out!

      Hi Adina
      That is great news! Version 2.0 sounds good too if it’s smaller. I am in Southern California so we don’t wear mittens 🙂 – Lili
