Hi all. I have a year old red healer. I taught him to ring the bell/knock on the door to go out and potty when we first had him. Its has been working great since he goes by the door and rings or scratch if he wants to go potty. However lately, he knows that when he rings or scratch at the door, he will be let outside.
Now my frustration is this. He goes to the door, rings/scratch, we let him out and tell him to go potty. He comes back to the door and knocks at the door to be let in. He comes in and then 10 mins later, he wants to go out again. We let him out however we close the door, a min later he wants back in. I know he wants to play and so forth. He continue to do that!! So it gets old quick. We don't know if he has to go or just want to play!!
I was looking at patio dog door so he can go in and out however the dimension of our patio dog is not standard and ordering on for it is 600!! Too much to pay for that. Anyways, any suggestion. Sorry its hard to describe the behavior.
