Rounder, a Rhodesian Ridgeback rescue, demonstrates how to educate your canine to ring the bell to go outside the house. This is a fantastic option behavior to coach to avoid your canine from scratching at the door to go outside the house. Also, you know your canine has to go out, even when you are not in the identical space. You can also use an electric doorbell (the bell plugs into the wall the ringer can be mounted anyplace).

Notice: you can skip the blue tape on the focus on and just have your canine focus on the bell in your hand. That is a more quickly way of instructing this behavior. At the time he targets the bell in your hand on cue, set it on the door and stick to the relaxation of the techniques in the movie. I like applying a focus on adhere and blue tape due to the fact they are each useful for instructing other behaviors. For illustration, you can use a focus on adhere to educate spin, bow (slide the adhere on the ground again between the dog’s entrance legs) & crawl (when the canine is in a down, bit by bit slide the adhere absent from them on the ground). You can use the blue tape to educate the canine to shut a door or drawer (touch) and as a overall body placement focus on.

I designed this movie for my sister, Lydia, and her stunning canine, Belle.

  3. It's completely discomforting whenever your dog keeps jumping on people.

  5. The answer to the question is information that you may or may not already know 🙂

  15. @boneless9512 That is a great question! I think the presence of the owner is part of the stimuli package (environmental cues) for the behavior. If the dog did try when the owner was absent, it wouldn't work to make the door open & the dog would stop offering it. The dog would learn owner presence as one of the contingencies for the door to be opened. I don't mind if my dogs ring the bell to go out and lay in the sun. If you wanted it only for potty time, you'd have to know your dog's schedule.

  16. @rogersmmr It does help. Well, since she's smart enough to learn how to touch the bell, lets hope that with practice she'll start the "linking" soon 🙂 Thank you!

  17. @cursiveK That is a great question! I like the way you think. 🙂 You are pairing the two behaviors together – ringing the bell & going outside. If you are consistent, those two behaviors become linked. Dogs are economical in their actions to get to the reinforcement. The dog takes a behavioral shortcut, if you will, to get to the reinforcement. The bell predicts the door opening. Dog wants door open. Dog rings bell. This is similar to how you change a cue – new cue/pause/old cue.Does that help?

  18. This was very helpful but I have a question. Training a dog usually means that the trainer asks for something and the dog will respond. This case is different because the tables will turn so that the dog will ask for something (by ringing the bell) and the trainer will respond (by opening the door). As of right now we are "touching" before we let her outside, but when (and how) will she know to do it by herself to let us know she wants to go out?

  25. @lyssielover Thank you for watching. You can substitute a word (like "yep") for the click. Pick a short, distinct word that you don't say all the time in normal conversation. There is no set time frame for each step. That will depend on the dog. When the dog is at about 80% accuracy, then you can increase the criteria. Count out 5 or 10 treats. Each time your dog gets it right, give a treat. If they don't respond, put the treat aside. Then, when the treats are gone, do the math. Happy training.

  26. i am interested in trying this.i have a few questions.
    what could i use to substitute the clicker? and how long should i try each step? by that i mean, working with click, then touch, then ring.. how long should i work on each step/how long should i focus on each step before adding on and moving on to the next?

  27. @DxMasta14 Congrats on the new dog! Enjoy him – they grow up so fast. When I train this, I cue the dog to ring the bell each time we go out the door. Eventually, the dog learns that the bell is a cue for the door opening and they will ring the bell to cue you they want to go out. Happy training, Marge

  28. @cropleysd Thank you for the kind words. And, congratulations on your new puppy!! How exciting! Enjoy puppyhood – they grow up so fast. Keep me posted. I look forward to seeing video. In the meantime – happy training. 🙂

  29. @rogersmmr Some times people have trouble training a paw touch. You can start with a really big target on on the floor, gradually make it smaller and smaller and then lift it up off the floor. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions. Happy training. 😀

  30. @vidgirl4444 Thank you for watching our vid. 🙂 I like the nose touch for my (tall) dogs. A lot of dogs scratch at the door to let their owner know they have to go out. That is part of the reason I use the bell (so the dog has an acceptible alternative to scratching at the door). If you have a shorter dog you could hang the bell on a longer string so they could nose touch. Or, if you want a paw touch, you can still train it as outlined, just substitute the paw touch for the nose touch.

  31. so this is NOSE touch. how about PAW touch?

  32. @WickedOne2Three I believe research shows they can see some colors. I believe yellow and blue are colors they can see clearly. 🙂

  33. @lilazn2grl Congratulations on your puppy! Check out @kikopup for a wonderful tutorial video called "Before You Start Training with Food – clicker training dog". The exercises she demonstrate teach the dog impulse control and how to ignore the food in order to get the food. Have fun and happy training. 🙂

  34. @Panther704 You are welcome. Yorkie's are very smart. I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun. Happy clicking. 🙂

  36. You can have the dog nose touch the bell itself as a target. Follow the method shown to target the stick & hand, use the bell instead. Ex.-have your clicker ready & hold the bell in front of your dog. If your dog looks at the bell, click & treat. Repeat. Slowly increase the criteria until dog is touching bell with his nose. Many dogs will investigate a new object presented by their owners, so you may get a nose touch right away. When he is reliable, hang bell on door. Keep me posted. 🙂
