Ring a Bell to Go Out?

793 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Hasch
Have you had luck with this? We are thinking of trying it with Stella. Right now we are just taking her out frequently and kind of on a schedule...first thing in the morning...after meals...after inside playtime...but she really doesn't indicate that she HAS to go out.

Have any of you done this training for your dog?

I made a bell monster.

it was ok for a little while but it ended up with her ringing the bell every ten seconds all day long.

I think its because the way I taught it, she got the idea to ring the bell when she wanted to go out but not nessecarily when she had to go potty.

but if you want to try...

teach targeting and have them target the bell every time YOU take them outside.
