Ringing bell!

We have been teaching Piper to ring a bell to go outside. Last night she reached our her paw and attempted to ring the bell without assistance! YAY!!

I had to post so that I can look back when she's driving me nuts and remember these good little moments.

Congrats!! That is awesome!! I think we are going to do that too. What age did you start Piper with the bells? Benny was 9 weeks on Saturday.

We started a couple days after we brought her home. (She was 10 weeks) We just hung the bell on the door knob for now (as we carry her in and out to prevent accidents) and we use her paw to ring the bell each time we go outside to potty.

awwwwww YAY!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
NOW comes the hard part ... EVERY single time she rings the bell you HAVE to let her out. HAVE TO LET HER OUT! Even if she was JUST out 2 minutes ago ... you HAVE to let her out. Eventually the excitement wears off and they will start using it soley to go out to potty. and chase cats. and bark at passer byers... lol

It's really easy when they learn to ring a bell to go out. Prior to my Havs, I had a Bichon who would just go and sit at the back door when he wanted/needed to go out. If I wasn't in the area at the time, he would just sit there forever, until I noticed him and let him out. When I got my first a Hav, Bailey, I vowed that wouldn't happen, so I bought a small cow bell, had my husband affix it to the base of the door frame and, like you, every time we went out from the day he can home (no piddle pads way back then), I would use his paw to ring the bell. He caught on immediately. It was amazing. Tyler, unfortunately is following in the steps of my Bichon and is a door sitter even though the bell is still there. Sigh! How frustrating.
