We did it because the pups "safe" room isn't the room with the front door, so he can't get to the door to ask us to go out... so the bell is next to the baby gate walling off that room. Does he abuse it sometimes? Yes, but it's easy enough to figure out when (like when we're eating dinner and he wants to come beg for food. Nice try, buddy). Alternately, we don't trust him to ring the bell when he needs to go out 100%. We are still the ones responsible for getting him out on a regular schedule. The bell is more to catch the in betweens, which it works well for. We didn't start training him to use it until we had him for a few weeks and he could do a "touch" command. I don't see why 15 wks would be too late.
