My little dog was having trouble letting us know when he needed to go outside. Well he wasn't having trouble so much as not bothering to tell us. :-) I thought that if we got him a bell he could ring - then he'd let us know. My husband was convinced it was the dumbest thing he'd ever heard of and didn't want me to spend $10 on buying on.
So I spent $5 and made one!
And there you go - a doggie door bell! The ribbon did go over the door knob but the 1" would have "fit better" on the knob handle.
Here's a closer look at the loop with the sewn area and the bells. We bought fabric glue but it didn't hold at all - so we had to go with sewing.
So the big question - did puppy use the bell? Well - he did once. I tried training him and maybe if I'd had it right when we got him - he would have picked up on it more. Luckily for us - once we got him fixed - he stopped having accidents in the house. Now - big dog paces and that's when I know they need to go. Oh well - it's a cute door bell - and easy enough to make - no need to spend money on buying one if you're in the market!
