STEP 1:TEACH NOSE TO HAND
The first step is to hold the bell close to your puppy’s nose. Once the puppy touches the bell, say “yes!” and give the puppy a treat. If needed,
you can encourage the puppy to touch the bell by holding a treat behind it or dabbing some peanut butter on the bell. Repeat until your puppy
readily touches the bell with his nose, always giving lots of praise and a treat. When he confidently touches the bell as soon as you present it,
add a word such as “touch” or “bell.” Start to hold the bell a little farther away, so the puppy has to make a few steps to touch it.
STEP 2：BELLS ON THE DOOR OR WALL
Once your puppy has learned to touch the bell on cue, use 3M double-sided tape to stick it on the door or wall where you would like for your
puppy to go out. Encourage your puppy to touch the bell, and as soon as he does, say “yes!” and treat. Repeat until your puppy readily
touches the bell when you give him the cue. Reward him and give him very enthusiastic praise!
Note: Some dogs will pick up these steps more quickly than others. It may take a few hours, a few days or even a few weeks depending on your pup.
STEP 3：OPEN THE DOOR,AND TAKE HIM OUTSIDE
Step three is teaching your puppy to ring the bell at the right time. Approach the door with your puppy, point to the bell, and say your cue, “touch”
or “bell.” The moment he touches the bell, say “yes!,” open the door, and take him outside. With repetition, your puppy will learn that when he
touches the bell, you will open the door.
If your puppy begins to ring the bell just to go outside to play, you need to teach him that ringing the bell is only about potty time. When he rings the
bell, clip on his leash, and take him to the place where you want him to eliminate. Give him a few minutes, and if he does his business, praise and give
him a treat. If he does not, take him right back inside. Over time, your dog will learn that ringing the bells means the door will open and they can go
outside to relieve themselves!
