    Just wanted to document a massive milestone for Ebony. :D

    A month or so back I made my own poochie bell(hanging some old keys to a piece of string from the door handle of our upstairs flat). I would ring it everytime I took Ebony out for to her to do her business. In past week or so she has been ringing it to go out for a wee or a poo. I am over the moon. She still has the odd accident but no where near as bad as she was.

    I think she's cracked it :D


    On a side note she also rings it when she wants to go out and have a sniff and search for the neighbour's cat. This is a little annoying but still its ace all the same :)

    Well done little one x

    I'd never heard of this before until we viewed a house last week where their golden retriever had a proper doggy door bell on the floor she rang when she wanted to go outside, or just when she felt a bit happy! :D

    Our dogs have a dog flap so wouldn't be much use to us, but I think it's a brill idea for people who don't have flap/ a garden.

    Well done ebony.....
    I have thought about this for Tia, she is 11mths now but has only just cracked asking to go out......the problem is he doesn't make any noise just stands by the door so you can miss it when sat in another room.

    Well done, my dog trainer has a bell for her dogs too. Mind her Collie is so intelligent he probably drilled the holes and fitted it himself :lol:
