How Daisy asks to go out....

Any dog I've ever had gave some kind of signal when they needed to go out. I had one that would come up to me, and then run to the door. Another sat down and stared at me. Maggie, my shep/collie mix, pants at me. I've had Daisy since July, and she has never done any of those things.

Tonight by chance, I discovered what her "signal" is. She sits on the end of the runner near the back door. This would be fine except typically I am nowhere nearby! :eyes: I am going to try and teach her how to ring a bell. (It really was cute though....her itty bitty self just sitting there waiting for me to magically know she was back there.)

I've got the cutest little image in my head of Daisy just sitting there waiting for you. Jersey goes to the door and taps it with her paw. If we ignore her she'll come into the living room and go to the sliding glass doors (which only lead to a second story balcony) and then back to the front door. I guess she figures if she's going to both doors eventually we'll get the picture and take her out.

We trained Spencer to ring the bell and he taught Sydney to do it. Spencer always swiped it with his paw and Sydney hit it with her nose. Since we have removed the bell, Spencer will still swipe on the door but Sydney has learned to pace from you to the door or sit in front of you and grumble.

I hope you have success with the bell ringing, it really worked great for us.
Why did you remove the bell?
