    SmileWOW WOW WOW.... SO Proud!

    We have bells hung at the door for the other pups to tell us they need "out". (well, the golden would prefer to come tell us himself, he's much too good for the bells, LOL).
    The cats even learned to use them, back when we had cats.
    But I digress...
    Two nights ago, i was sitting at the kitchen table, when Storm (at EXACTLY 3 months of age), ran over to the door, jingled the bells, and sat.
    I figured he was just playing with them, as always, and kind of ignored him, but still keeping one eye out "just in case".
    He jingled them again, sat, and then WHINED.
    So I went to the door, we went out, and he POOPED outside!!!
    WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO..... the start of recognition and successful potty training!
    He had been good about going outside IF he was outside, but I'm so very proud of my little wiggly-butt!

    WOW - that is fantastic. I would love to be able to train Aila (6-month old) to do that. How did you go about training -- did you ring the bell everytime you took them out, or did you make them ring it before you took them out?

    It helps that the other dogs use it too. But yes, it starts with "Do you have to go out??"
    And then we go to the door, and ring the bells ALWAYS before taking him out. At first, it was a game of "hey, these are FUN!" But once the bells get rung, the door MUST open. So then, he associates it with "Bells = door open"
    It can be quite a pain in the beginning because they're always playing with them and always wanting to go out, but after about a week, the fun dies down and then it's just whenever they want (or need) to go out!
    Even our cats learned to use them--by watching the dogs!

    /I would like to get some of those bells. Could you describe them or tell me where you purchased them? Paul

    I really just have them tied up to a shoelace--they're just bells that you can get at any craft store (or in the craft department of any store)--they tie easily to anything.
    Then, just drape over the doorknob!
    Good luck!
