Confinement and Bell Ringing
Leone came home 3 weeks ago and we are really struggling with potty training.
One thing I am confused about is how to use confinement and bell ringing.
Leone is always kept close to us, either in his crate or ex pen if I can't be right there with me (shower, errands etc.), but most of the time I keep him close to me... in whatever room I am in. I do this because most advice I have read is to not give him full run of the house.
But how do I teach him to ring the bell if he doesn't have free run of the house to ring the bell at the front door?
We are having a lot of pee accidents lately. I take him out hourly, but even when crated for 10 minutes he is peeing in it, or in the middle of playing and training will pee. He was doing so well at holding it that I am confused by this regression.
I would appreciate any advice!
