I ordered a Manners Minder

I ordered a Manners Minder


A Manners Minder is a device that spits out cookies by remote control. I’m looking forward to trying it out to solve one of Delilah’s problem behaviours. When my husband (B) unlocks the door and comes in, Delilah gets extremely anxious. Not sure why. It’s been going on for a really long time. I’ve tried desensitizing her to the sound of the open door. I’ve tried counterconditioning her to B coming home. I’ve tried teaching her an appropriate alternative behaviour -running to her crate. Nothing seems to work. If I’m home, B sends me a text that he’s home and as when she hears the door open, she gets a kong with a cookie -this works well. But the prob is when I’m not home or when I’m sleeping. Now I happen to have one of those husbands, that enjoys staying out really late. So when he comes home at 3:30 am and I get woken up by a piercing bark, it’s really hard to fall back asleep. This is where the manners minder comes in. So just as B opens the door he needs to activate the manners minder. Hopefully this will divert Delilah’s attention to cookies and let me sleep peacefully. I will keep you posted how it works. I actually think it will work well for Delilah. Now if I can count on B to activate the remote after a night of drinking…that’s another story!

    Whoa, I had no idea your husband was so fun. Just tape the remote to the front door so he can’t miss it when he stumbles home.

      How powerful is the remote? Does it work outside a closed door?

        It should work through a closed door. Sophia Yin suggests using it as a remote potty trainer (dog is in yard, you are inside, dog pees, hit the remote to reinforce the pottying) That said I have never used it through walls or doors.
