Hang this high quality bell system on the inside of the door that your pet typically exits your house from, and your dog will learn to nudge the Poochie Bells when he is ready to go outside, letting you know it is time. Four thick bells on each Poochie-Bells unit allows you to easily hear them ring, but not so loud that they are overbearing. The thin yet durable nylon strip measures 25" long. Made in the USA.

The Doggie Door Bell Hooks are a decorative way to hang your Poochie-Bell, leash, or keys. Hooks attach securely to a wall or door. Ideal for hanging the Poochie Bell on a wall so the bells don't jingle every time you open the door. Each hook measures 2" x 1 1/2". Installation screws included.

Suggested Training Method

As with any training method, results depend on the consistency and effort put into training your dog. Our system is based on the great psychologist Ivan Pavlov's discovery, that one form of learning is a result of repeated stimulus. By ringing the bells each and every time the dog is to go outside (creating a stimulus), your dog will learn to associate the stimulus of the bells with the ability to go outside. No dog is too old to learn this behavior.

    Step 1:
    Hang the loop of the Poochie-Bells on the inside doorknob (or hook) of the door(s) that your dog typically exits the house. Your Poochie-Bells will hang down approximately 25 inches. Each unit is made to accommodate both small and large breeds. Your dog only needs to nudge any part of the Poochie-Bells unit in order to make the bells ring. Poochie-Bells should stay on the door or on a small hook next to the door at all times so that your dog can access them whenever they need to.
  1. Step 2:
    Every time you take your pooch outside to potty, state a simple command phrase. We suggest "Outside...Ring the Bells". Get your family involved! All members of your household should be consistent and use the same wording and actions with your dog.
  2. Step 3:
    After stating your command phrase, ring your Poochie-Bells in front of the dog. The dog should see AND hear the bells
  3. Step 4:
    After ringing the bells and saying your command, follow through with praise and allow your dog to go outside. It is important that you NOT reward your dog with a food treat, as they will associate the ringing the bells with receiving food. We suggest that you not use potty time to play with your dog outside so they don’t associate ring time with playtime. You can always take your buddy outside to play at other times when you choose to. The dog will eventually associate ringing the bells with going and the praise they receive from their favorite person, you, is reward enough! DO THIS EACH TIME YOUR DOG IS TO GO OUTSIDE, AS CONSISTENCY IS KEY!
  4. Step 5:
    After several weeks of this conditioning, continue to say the phrase you’ve been using each time your dog wants to exit the house. Tell them "Outside...Ring the Bells" and point to the Poochie-Bells. Praise them once they ring the bells and allow the dog to go out. If the dog does NOT ring the bells, you ring the bells, restate your command phrase and then allow the dog outside.
  5. Step 6:
    Each following week, repeat this conditioning until your dog starts to ring the bells on their own. It is critical that you praise your dog on his newly learned behavior to reinforce this action.

Remember to always listen for the bells, even if you are in a different part of the house from where you’ve hung your Poochie-Bells. When you hear them ring… let your dog out!! Your dog can now communicate without barking, whining or having accidents in the house.

Easy to hear the bells through the house.
 
 
Pros:
Cons:
Whenever a friend gets a new dog, I give them poochie bells as a gift. Teaching our dog to ring the bell was easy, and the bells are loud enough to be heard through my house. We have one on the front door and back door. Our dog has also learned that ringing the bell makes a human come, so if her food dish is empty, she rings the bell and sits at her dish instead of at the door! We love poochie bells, and take a set with us whenever we travel.

Great product
 
 
Pros:
Lightweight, Cute
Cons:
I got the Poochie Bells to help with house breaking my new puppy. After showing her the bells, jingling them, and going outside to potty, she immediately learned to nudge the bells with her nose when she wanted to go out, and has done so since I first showed her! They are a great way for your dog to let you know they need to go outside, especially when your pup isn't in your site. The noise of the jingling bells lets you know your pup is at the door, wherever you are in the house. My pup hasn't had an accident in the house since I starting using the Poochie Bells!

My puppy learned to use the bells in three days. It's a great way for your pet to let you know when he or she needs to go out. We take them on vacation or when visiting others.

Awesome Product
 
 
Pros:
Dogs love them, colorful, Lightweight, Sounds great, Good Construction, Stows Easily
Cons:
Could scratch white doors
GREAT PRODUCT! I use these things ALL of the time for training dogs AND cats...yes cats too. Cats can be trained to come for treats on command and for other things. :-) Dogs learn extremely fast. Best to start when they are pups, but even an older dog can learn very quickly. Remember to REWARD with a treat every time your pooch gets it right. Hang the bells, sit the dog and ring them showing him what you wish him to do. As soon as he hits them with either nose or toe...REWARD! In No time he will be a bell ringer and then immediately take him out the door! By George! He's got the Big Reward! He'll be thrilled! PLAY WITH HIM! He'll learn really fast! PLAY, PLAY, PLAY.

Pros:
Replaces Barking to go out. Our dog used her nose to ring bells, so no door scratches.
Cons:
Our dog took to this almost immediately. Within several days, she was ringing the bells with her nose. No more barking to go outside.

Pros:
Easy for them to reach, easy to hear, and the cats like to use it too. They all learned though it took some longer than others.
Cons:
The top loop that goes around the door handle should be reinforforced with additional material.
Easy for them to reach, easy to hear, and the cats like to use it too. They all learned though it took some longer than others. It seems they like having a way to communicate their need (or want)to go out.
Experience with Product: 1-12 months
