Hang a bell by the door so new puppy (as young as 6 weeks old) can be trained to let you know when he needs to go out. Touch his nose to the bell every time you put him out. Dog should learn in two weeks

I trained my dog to ring a bell also. I started when she was 6 weeks old and she now is 4 years old and still rings the bell when she needs out :-)
I did this with my first dog and it worked great. I told my daughter to do it and it's works for her too. Now I am teaching my new pup. Val (03/20/2006)
I started using a bell because our puppy can't go down our hardwood stairs to the door. Now he seems to just ring it when he wants to go out and play. When he rings it I am taking him to the potty spot and not letting him run past there. If he goes potty I am giving him a treat, if he doesn't I am just bringing him right back inside. (03/25/2006)
