So, let’s get on with how to train your dog with the quick Athenas Pets three step method.
Step 1 to Success:
The first step is to get your dog comfortable with the bells. Be careful not to scare your dog when you first introduce them to the bells.
You want to gently bring them out, lay them on the floor and have your dog feel comfortable touching them. Make sure you praise and reward them when they are successful.
After a brief time period, lift the bells up in your hand and have your dog touch them while they are hanging down. They should make a noise and you want to encourage that. Praise and reward successes.
Step 2 to Poochie Bells Housetraining:
The second step to take once you get your dog completely comfortable with the bells is to hang them from the door you use to take your dog out to potty.
There are a couple of snaps on the top to the dog doorbell strap that allow you to connect it to any door.
If you have a sliding glass door handle it will function, there as well. Just follow the instructions in the eBook that accompanies our poochie bells.
Now that it is in place, you want to ring the bells yourself when you take your dog out to potty. At the same time, you want to encourage your dog to ring the bells too.
Over time, you want to wait 15-20 seconds while encouraging your dog to ring the bells before you touch them.
Again, this is not a very hard step. You can do it!
Step 3 to Successful Poochie Bells Housetraining:
Well, this is the most challenging step for most dogs.
Once they learn they can ring the bells and go outside, they’ll start ringing the bells 24/7 to potty and to play.
So, what do you do?
You need to start using the Praise and Reward techniques to make sure your dog is only encouraged IF they ring the bells, THEN go outside to potty.
IF, your dog rings bells, goes outside and potties, give them a great praise like, “Good Girl, Good Boy!” and a reward, which is a treat that they like.
IF, on the other hand, your dog rings the bells and doesn’t go potty, just wants to hang out and play, do NOT praise or reward one you’re in step 3.
Over time, your dog should only ring the bells to go to the potty, then come back inside.
We’re not suggesting that you shouldn’t play with your dog, you should do that without ringing the bells.
If you would like to have your dog ring the bells whenever they want to go outside, feel free to stop after step 2 and you’re good to go.
