The Bells Are Ringing
Coco is potty trained. At 7 months she’s gotten the concept down. However in the evenings down time is still a hard concept to grasp. Sometimes she just doesn’t understand everyone is done playing for the evening and it’s time to settle down. She get’s it after a while, but she’s really a live wire.
One of her little things is she seems to get bored, so she fills up on water and then wants to go out 20 times in an evening. We have been pulling up the water around 7pm, but there is still the problem of the cue. Since our TV room does not have a good view of the back door, when she has an accident it’s in front of the door. We think this playing or getting a toy, but whoops… right in front. Progress really, but to help her give us a cue, we decided to try bell training her.
First we hung the bell on the door, but there is lot of commotion by the door as the cats like to look out, so then we decided to hang it on the window ledge right next to the door where she could reach it. Early signs predict success.
