The amazing purple witch, Bailie, has volunteered to learn the trick this year. It is high time Bailie steps up and learns to ring the doorbell when she wants to come inside. I’ve been ringing it for years, but Bailie has never learned how. Last year I learned how to hold a spoon in my mouth which was a tough one!
At my house we use the PebbleSmart Doggie Doorbell. It is made for dogs and is pretty easy to train. It has a removable treat tray behind the hole in the center. By placing a treat in the try, the dog’s nose automatically pushes the yellow bell ringer trying to get the treat.
First Mom added a tasty treat to the tray while Bailie was watching. ***Note, remove costume prior to learning to reduce distractions.
Bailie is then told to “ring”. Her nose smells the treat and heads for the bell.
When the nose contacts the ringer and the bell sounds. It only takes a slight touch on the bottom half of the yellow circle to make the bell ring. Mom says “ring” come inside to us as we learn to ring the bell when we are ready to come back into the house. We’ve had this bell for three years, and it is still going strong! Despite those -20 winter days and 90+ summer it still rings, and we have only needed to change the battery twice!
I’m the official bell ringer at our house, which is why I demonstrate it first, and then Bailie will show off her newly learned skill. The bell is awesome and is actually louder than our doorbell on the front door!
