Very sturdy and bells are large enough that my mini-dachshund is able to hit them effectively. The strap is a woven leash-type material that won't easily succumb to chewing. I would like to suggest a change to the manufacturing process... that is to reverse the "closing" snap and the Potty Bells tag to the other side of the strap. That way they would hang flat against the door without twisting on the doorknob. Otherwise they are great!
Have owned a set of these for a few years and loved it. Just purchased this one for a friend to train her new dog. They really do work! Just go online and type into your browser, "Dog Potty Bells how to use", or something similar in keywords. You'll find videos that help to train your dog. They pick it up pretty quickly.....even older dogs. Our dog was a couple of years old when we adopted him, and he took to it nicely. We prefer not to have a doggie door as they can be unsightly plus, depending upon the size of your dog, the opening can be large enough for a burglar to take advantage of. No kidding--it happened to me a long time ago. Sometimes they get a small child to go through and unlock the door from the inside. So I'm not a fan of them because of this particularly when crime is everywhere these days. I also love buying from Chewy! They're the best. Everything you need for your pet. And they are incredibly nice to deal with--fantastic customer service plus FAST delivery. Great company to deal with.
bought this for my 2 year old 24lb frenchie and it helps so much to indicate when he needs to go potty. he doesn't whine when he needs to go to the bathroom so he uses his entire body to slam into the bell
We trained our mini dachshund quickly and easily to ask to go outside, using the kind of bells you see on a counter, that they step on. Thought these would work as well for our new puppies. Unfortunately, I cannot get them to ring these on purpose. They will accidently bump into them sometimes when they are playing, but they will not touch them with their noses or feet. They are also not very loud or easy to ring. You have to grab them and shake them pretty hard to get much sound. Disappointed. Have ordered some of the other type of bell from another source, and after two times of tapping it with their paws when taking them out, one of them is already ringing to go outside. Much easier to hear, too, and less of a hassle than one that hangs on the door and gets caught every time you close it.
Our 14 week old puppy learned to use the bell in 1 day! Love this!
My puppy is 12 weeks old and it only took her three days to figure out ringing the bell. It has helped tremendously for house training.
Is working well so far but puppy is still learning.
My 13 week old mini schnoodle puppy learned how to ring the bells the first day we had them on the door knob. She’s tiny, but they hang low enough for her to reach with her nose. Usually she’ll hit them with her front legs. The louder and longer the bells ring, the more urgent her request. We can hear them from every room in our one-story home. The tone of the bells is pleasant—like sleigh bells.
I ended up using a command strip to hang this next to the door. I got tired of it jingling every time I went outside when it was hanging off the doorknob. My dog still knows to ring it, so it is a win-win. My only complaint is I wish it was a little shorter.
My boy, Beaux, has an older set of potty bells he uses to go outside that are very loud. I decided to move the old bells to the outside of the glass door for him to ring to come back in and purchased this set to put on the inside of the door. These bells ring, but not very loudly. I can hear him tap the old bells from outside.
