View Full Version : I have to brag a little

7th May 2007, 03:19 AM
Well, I can't brag about the fact that Ruby has regressed in her potty training and has peed and pooped in the house about 4 or 5 times this weekend, but I can still talk about how smart our little girl is. I decided to make my own version of poochie bells out of some jingle bells I found at Hobby Lobby. After only 2 times of taking her out with us ringing the bells and saying "potty", she walked up to them and nudged them with her nose and went out with Jason and pottied!! I was so proud!! Now if we can just get her to use them all the time. I've already pulled out the housetraining book in case we have to start over from square one.

Basically you train your dog to ring some bells hanging on your door whenever he/she needs to go outside to potty. I think there are a few threads on here about it somewhere. I'd wanted to try it but didn't want to pay so much for the true Poochie Bells when I didn't know if she'd take to it. Mine aren't so cute, but they work for us.
