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.

  • 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.

    Great quality

    By Angie on Dec 5, 2020

    Very nice quality item. However, the directions provided did not work with my dog. I did find a YouTube video which helped. I first had to get her to ring the bell on her own and did that with a treat. Once she knew to ring the bell when asked, I had her ring the bell before going outside every time. She picked it up very quick after that and had it figured out completely in the first few days.

    Not just for dogs!

    By Susie on May 13, 2020

    I already had one set of bells that I found at a garage sale. I hung them on my patio door for my cat. Yes, cat! She immediately started ringing them to go out. I decided I needed another set for the outside handle and found these. Now I know when she wants to come back inside. They work great!

    Awesome bell

    By Snorkie on Nov 2, 2018

    I had a bell that I purchased before from a different place, we had it for a long time. It was old and barely made any sound at at. I bought this new bell and hung it on the door, and my girls love it! It was hilarious to see them at first. To go from a bell that barely rung, and them having to pull hard to make it work. To this bell that sounds loud and if you barely touch it it makes a noise. Lol they jumped the first time they used it, but we love our bell!!!

    Do I hear bells?

    By Dumboldman on May 17, 2018

    The jingle bells seem to be well made, but they could be louder for people with hearing loss.

    would reccommend

    By ashmain on Jan 17, 2018 Top 10 Contributor

    Good quality, the ribbon on this is thick and sturdy and keeps the bells from flying all over the place when you open and close the door. The length of this is good for both small and larger dogs. We've had ours for months and it is holding up great, it is just hard to keep clean, with it being white and in a high traffic area.
