And for another perspective: The first dog we had when I was six was bell-trained. I was six years old, so I didn't have much to do with her training. Nor do I remember the details of how she was trained.

What I DO remember is that she rang that bell whenever she felt she needed a bit of attention: When we sat down to eat, when you wanted to shower or use the toilet, when you were on the phone, etc.

One of our current dogs (a senior lab mix) stomps her feet and snorts when she wants to go out. The other, a young foo-foo mix, just follows her out.

I've had dogs that gave us no signals at all. I've just always figured it was our responsibility to give them regular opportunities and we haven't had a problem.
