"Whether human or canine, it’s easy to get addicted to the Pet Tutor, the newest high-tech treat-dispensing system on the market. After hearing all the buzz about it from several of my trainer friends, I purchased the device a few months ago, and after a quick, easy setup, my dog, Cody, was addicted to it in less than three dispenses (and so was I)!"   -Whole Dog Journal January 2016 "Gear Of The Year" Product Review

"I wish I had these 40 years ago! The Pet Tutors that you've designed and are distributing are just marvels. They are orders of magnitude better than the feeders of old. It is possible to use so many types of food in these feeders and have them dispensed with precision and reliability. They are light years ahead of what we had and frankly light years ahead of anything I've seen in the recent markets. It’s limited only by the user's imagination."

Bob Bailey, Former CEO/COO Animal Behavior Enterprises, international consultant.

"Smart Animal Training Systems (non-aversive, high-tech, science-based super fantastic dog training toolmakers, the guys who made the Pet Tutor) has launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance their latest brainchild. Please consider supporting them. They do a ton of good for dogs..This is such a huge part of the future of dog training, leveraging technology to deliver treats for both operant and classical applications. The Academy supports this effort and encourages everyone interested in humane and evidence-based methods to support this campaign."
