Description

House training is music to your ears with the Mighty Paw Tinkle Bells Dog Doorbell. Allowing your dog to communicate when it’s time to go outside, just hang these bells on the door, and dogs can be easily trained to swat the bells when nature calls. It easily hangs around any doorknob with a loop that snaps into place with a reinforced rivet, and the nylon ribbon is both attractive and durable—standing up to tugs, scratches, and bites. And most importantly, the silver-coated bells make a pleasant, clear sound that can be heard from other rooms.

Key Benefits
  • Hanging door bells are an effective tool for housebreaking pets, allowing pups to communicate when it’s time to go.
  • Large, thick-walled jingle bells are made from durable metals that offer superior sound quality.
  • Premium nylon ribbon is attractive and made to withstand scratches, tugs, and bites.
  • Comes with a simple, three-step training guide along with a free hook to hang leashes!
  • These easy to hang bells measure 24 x 1 x 0.1 inches.

Instructions
  • Choose a Location

Place your Mighty Paw Tinkle Bells on, or near, the door handle where your dog exits to go "Tinkle”. Keep in mind that dogs typically use their nose or their paw to ring the bells once trained.

  • Form a Connection

Each time you let your dog out to go to the bathroom, reach down and ring the bells. Choose a phrase to accompany this, such as “Tinkle Time!” Immediately let your dog out. Repeat this each time until your dog connects ringing the bells with being let out to go to the bathroom.

  • Reinforce with Praise

Praise and/or give a treat only when “Tinkle Time” was a success. Your dog should associate the bells with bathroom time only. Consistency is key. Do not reward if your dog rings the bell simply to be let outside.

FAQ

My dog seems scared of the bells. What do I do?

This is most commonly because the bells are too loud for the dog. We recommend removing 2 of the 3 sets of jingle bells to “quiet” the sound. Gradually expose your dog to the bell by lightly ringing the bell when let out for potty time. As your dog adjusts to the sound gradually add the jingle bells back so that you can hear the ringing of the bells from other rooms of the house.

My dog is using the bells to signal play time instead of potty time. What do I do?

Consistency is key. When your dog creates the correct action (potty time) you reward them with praise or a treat. If they ring the bell for any other reason there is no reward or praise. Over time the dog will establish a connection that the bells are only used to communicate potty time.

Can the Tinkle Bells be used inside and outside?

Yes. The fabric is tough, durable, and weather-proof nylon webbing that can stand up against the outside elements and the most playful dogs.

Will Tinkle Bells work for small dog breeds?

Yes. Using a standard height door handle the Tinkle Bells hang approximately 9-10 inches from the floor. However if you decide you would like the Tinkle Bells closer to the floor you can use the free wall hook included with your purchase.

Should the Tinkle Bells stay on the door at all times?

Yes. Consistency is key. This is a very important part of the training. Remember we are creating a connection and a new habit and consistency will make this much easier.

Will Tinkle Bells work on all door types?

The included rivet allows the Tinkle Bells to attach through a handle or over top of a door know. This makes the product versatile to be used with virtually all doors and hooks.

How long does it take before my dog uses the Tinkle Bell consistently?

Most dogs start to grasp the concept within a few days to a week. However this varies from dog to dog. Some dogs it can take a couple of months. Remember consistency is key. The more consistent you are with the training the faster your dog will learn to communicate.

How old does my dog need to be in order to begin the Tinkle Bell training?

We recommend 3-4 months old to initiate the training program. This is usually old enough to understand the concept of the training program. Remember young puppies are energetic and playful. Stay consistent with praise only when potty time is achieved (not play time).

Can older dogs be taught to use the Tinkle Bells?

Yes. Tinkle Bells are perfect for older dogs as well.

    Snap close for door loop bad design

    By Mary on Jan 15, 2021

    These look good but there is a major design flaw if you want to hang them over the door knob. My dog jumps at the door to let me know (which I'm more likely to hear if he hits the bells), and often hits the bell strip hard enough that the snap closure on the door loop pops open and they fall to the ground. If they wanted to make the loop optional, something a bit sturdier for the loop closure is in order.

    Great idea!

    By Mary on Dec 4, 2020

    Our trainer recommended trying out the dog doorbell. Our 6 month old puppy to to it immediately. The only drawback is that we're not always within earshot. Overall, though, we're quite happy with it.

    By PottyTraining on Nov 22, 2020

    Our puppy was about 8 weeks old and it only took her 2 weeks to get this down to a science! She now rings it when she needs fresh water as well! lol Great investment.

    Worked for our puppy

    By Allie on Oct 11, 2020

    We were struggling with puppy training our dog. Taking him out on a schedule but he wouldn't tell us when he had to go. It took less than 3 days for him to push his nose against the bells when he had to use the bathroom! Almost no accidents 1 week in

    Good idea...unless your dog is a scaredy cat!

    By easrossi on Sep 13, 2020

    We had used bells to train our previous dog to let us know when he had to go "out" and had great success. Our new little guy is terrified of these bells and avoided the door until we took them down. The design is nice, I liked that it was adjustable. We'll hold onto them for possible future furry friends!

    Nice quality

    By BZOO on Nov 9, 2020 Top 500 Contributor

    Needed a replacement for the old doorbell. This is nice quality, more "elegant" and you can't go wrong with purple (yes, they are not pink).
