Bell ringer

So Ted is definitely a bell ringer. Hubby brought him outside this morning and thats it. Pee pad be gone he wants out and he goes over to the door scratches on the screen and then rings the bells!!! How amazingly smart is this little guy. He also has mastered sit and come, although come is just a suggestion to him

My puppy rings the bell too, however, she has figured out this is also a way for her to get outside to play. She does this constantly, even 30 seconds after we just come in. She came from a farm and loves being outside. I'm getting ready to "bail" on this idea of the bell, but she hasn't developed any other way of letting us know when she has to go potty.

From those more experienced, does this get better? Has anyone used the bell for a year or more? Thanks!

Lily looks like a darling. Here' a method for discriminating between potty breaks and play time. http://www.clickertraining.com/node/1171 I agree with the article in that you should have the dog somewhat trained before you rely on bell training.

Ted is pretty good, although I think he sometimes squats for a second once he goes outside to make me think he has peed again. So far we have been up15 minutes and he has rang the bells 5 times. I paid attention to them twice!

thanks Dave, I've been clicker training my dog and she's about 90% reliable with housebreaking so I might try training with a bell. However, it says to click but no treat. this goes against what I'm being taught in clicker training (click is always followed by treat).
