So many special occasions to celebrate with your best friend! These PoochieBells® potty training doorbells, are grosgrain ribbon printed with seasonal and holiday themes. Lead free, super smooth and safe, reinforced bells designed especially for your pooch. Look for our Paw Print insignia designating a true PoochieBell®. Each PoochieBells® comes complete with two sets of bells, measures approximately 26″ from your doorknob or hook, and easy proven training instructions.
Hang PoochieBells inside the house on a doorknob or hook next to the door your dog exits to go out and leave it there so it is accessible at all times for your dog to ring.
Every time you let your dog out to potty, bring the dog to the bells to sniff, ring them, and state a command such as "Outside, ring your bells!", praise the dog, then take him/her out to potty. We do not recommend playing with or giving the dog a treat at that time. You want him/her to associate ringing the bells with potty time only.
Throughout conditioning, continue your command, be consistent and praise your dog for their attention and wanted behavior. Consistency is key.
Repeat this training method until your dog begins to ring the bells on their own. Make sure to praise your dog on their newly learned behavior to reinforce the action.
Don't forget to bring your PoochieBells with you while away travelling with pooch away from home or for the pet-sitter or grandparents- he/she will be looking for his communication tool while on the road as well. Little pooch a bit hesitant about the bells? Take your PoochieBells off of the door and let him/her sniff them and touch them on the ground. You may also want to put a dab of cream cheese on them so that he/she knows there is no fear or harm in it for them. Then hang them back up and start your training.
