Wow Molly all the dogs AND a cat! That is excellent. I considered training to a bell but as adults it didn't matter -- I have to take them out several times on walks anyway, not having a garden, so I didn't want them ringing bells at all different times.

Wonderful video and I just loved that dog. Anyway, it inspired me to go out and buy a bell. Now, I wonder who is going to learn to use it first

This has been exactly my experience. Pepper is quite hilarious (he's been using the bells for about a year now). Often he decides he needs/wants to go out just as we have sat down to dinner. Since we walk him on a leash, he has to wait until we are finished. So he'll really get those bells going, then comes back within eye-shot of us, to glare indignantly, and goes back to ring them again. He will do this at other times of the day as well--if he rings the bells and I don't hop to it immediately, or acknowledge him somehow, he comes back to find me to stare at me.
