How To Train A Dog With A Bell


Have you ever wished you could train your dog to ring a bell when they want something? Well, look no further! This article will tell you how.

Make sure you have a bell that isn’t too loud.

You can find bells at your local pet store or online. Bells vary in size and shape, but they’re generally circular in shape. They also come in a variety of colors and patterns.

If you are purchasing a bell for training purposes, make sure to choose one that isn’t too loud or obnoxious—you don’t want your dog to become startled by it when it rings!

Place the bell on the door and ring it with your dog.

Once you have placed the bell on the door, ring it with your dog. Repeat this process until he is used to the sound and begins to associate it with going outside. When they ring the bell by themselves, reward them with a treat or playtime; give them plenty of praise every time they ring the bell.

Do this repeatedly until your dog is used to the sound.

The second step is to put the bell on your door and open it. After doing this a few times, you should notice that your dog is less likely to react as strongly when they hear the sound of an approaching visitor.

However, do not attach the doorbell until your dog has become used to the sound. If you attach it right away, they might associate it with something negative and try to escape or panic when they hear it again in future encounters with visitors. If this happens, reassure them by saying “no”, then giving them a treat or playtime if possible (after all, we don’t want them getting too stressed out).

Reward your dog when he rings the bell with a treat or playtime.

The reward you give should be immediate, of high value, and long-lasting. Your dog should receive the reward right after he rings the bell. It should also be something that your dog really likes and will remember so that he’ll want to repeat it again in the future.

For example, if you have a treat-based reward system, then you might use a treat pouch or clicker instead of just giving them treats from your hand (which may cause them to associate ringing bells with getting scolded). If playtime is your preferred reward method, try using a toy instead of engaging in physical play (which can lead to injuries for both parties).

Give him plenty of praise whenever he rings the bell.

Once he has mastered the bell, it’s time to teach him how to ring it on command. This is also a great way to get him used to being told what to do by you.

Give him plenty of praise whenever he rings the bell and reward him with a treat or game when he does so.

Some other rewards you can use:

  • Patting his head
  • Playing fetch or tug-of-war with him
  • Hiding treats around the house for him to find

If you have multiple pets, make sure they don’t use each other’s bells.

If you have multiple pets, make sure they don’t use each other’s bells. If the dog can’t tell the difference between the bell sound and other sounds, this will be a problem. For example, if your cat is rubbing against your dog’s collar while its on his/her neck, it may cause him/her to get excited or jump up and down in response to what he/she perceives as a treat (the sound made by her collar). This could confuse his training significantly because he won’t know when it’s okay for him to be excited about something versus when he should not be moving around at all. This can also happen if there are dogs outside playing in their backyard; their barks might make him think that someone is coming over so he runs around barking like crazy too! To prevent unnecessary confusion during training sessions, make sure all of your pets have their own way of communicating with each other – like using body language rather than sound so that everyone understands each other clearly without any miscommunication happening between them which could lead them into trouble later on down the road when using these types of signals becomes necessary (example: greeting one another!).

Ringing bells can be trained in dogs!

Ringing bells can be trained in dogs!

  • Bells can be used to reinforce good behavior. For example, you’re dog will ring the bell when he wants something from you, like food or water. By complying with his wishes and ringing the bell yourself, you will reinforce good behavior by giving him what he wants. This is similar to how humans respond when their child asks for something; we give them what they want so that they know it’s okay for them to ask again later on in life when they need something else.
  • Bells can also be used to correct bad behavior. For example: if your dog jumps up on people and licks their faces without asking permission first (which would be considered rude), then ringing a bell could remind him that it’s not appropriate behavior and help him learn how he should act around others instead of just acting impulsively all day long without thinking about consequences first before acting out against other people’s wishes or needs (this may sound silly but there are many dogs who seem like this!)


Ringing bells can be trained in dogs! This training is best done when you are teaching your dog to ring the bell at the door. Make sure the bell is small and not too loud, as it will be on your door. Reward your pup with treats or play time when they learn to ring the bell!
