Train Your Dog To Ring A Potty Bell

Help your dog tell you when it is time to go

Remember the television show where the butler shows up and says "you rang sir" after having heard a bell ring?

Well this is not like that!

However you can teach your dog to tell you when it is time for them to do their business with a bell.

Have you ever looked at your dog and thought "what are you thinking"? 

Well now you can know ... well sorta.

With a potty bell your dog will at least be able to tell you when it is time for them to do their business.

Having them stand by or scratch the door may not always work .

Especially if you get busy in another area of the house or are on the phone. 

Besides do you really what your door all scratched to pieces?

Potty bells can break through your household noise.

A bell (depending on size) will cut through almost any noise and you will get the message immediately. 

If you are listening to the radio or watching television you may be distracted and not notice your dog needs to use the facility

Depending how noisy your home may be or how far away the bell is placed should determine the size of the bell.

Dogs of almost all ages can learn to ring the bell!

The best time to teach a dog new behavior is when they are a puppy, they are eager to please.

However you can also teach an older dog new behavior as well it just may require a different strategy.
