Tricked Out: Ringing a Bell

Is your dog a “Touch” master? If so, then the next step is to teach your dog to ring a bell! This is great for house training puppies and teaching your dog to let you know when he or she needs to go out. Everyone will be impressed with your training skills and your dog’s ability to learn this trick!

Step 1: Use a training stick to target the bell.
Step 2: When he or she touches the bell, use your clicker to click and treat.
Step 3: Anytime he or she touches the bell on his/her own, click and jackpot (reward with lots of high quality treats).
Step 4: Whenever you take your pup outside, have him or her touch the bell first. In this case, the reward is to open the door.
Step 5: In a few days, your dog will learn that when he or she rings the bell, the door will open.
