Hope this isn't a fluke...
Louis has been signaling to go outside!!! (He's 2, got him at that age not potty trained) I did bell-train him but I wasn't sure if it stuck with him. He would only ring the bells if I was right next to the back door.
Today, everyone (me, my husband, cats, other dog) was in the living room, Louis wandered away all the way to the back door and rang the bell! Both my husband I jumped up and went outside. We were so happy! But Louis didn't do anything. Just chewed some grass and stared at us. We went back inside.
Today again, my husband was watching him. He was getting ready to leave and took Louis outside. He didn't do anything. So my husband brought him back in, and as my husband was about to put him in the crate, Louis went to the door and stood there. My husband let him out and Louis pottied! Amazing!
It's amazing cause Louis is so terrible at signaling to go, plus he was scared to eliminate in front of my husband - and in one day, he signaled AND went for my husband!
I really hope this sticks. I do wonder if this occurrence coincides with the fact we got a new grill in the backyard, maybe he wants to sniff that. Either way - I'm crossing my fingers!!!
