    Default How does your bully let you know he has to go?

    This may seem like a silly question, but as I mentioned before I am a first-time fur-mama.

    How does your bully let you know he has to go outside? At what age did he/she start letting you know? Does he/she bark or scratch at the door? Or does he/she just go out at certain times when you take him/her?

    Right now we have Iggy on a very regimented schedule - he goes out first thing in the morning, 15-20 minutes after each meal, after nap time, and last thing before he goes to bed. He's crate trained, and he's never had an accident in there. Will he soon start letting me know on his own when he has to go out? Or will he continue to wait for me to take him at his set times? He's almost 4 months old and has very few accidents (maybe one every 3-ish days).

    Ruckus is easy. He will gremlin talk and if we don't get right up he will nudge and moan until we do. Lola would just go in the house without any sign. Ugh! She was a stray found on the street. We put bells on the door we always use so we could hear her if she went to the door. We take her out constantly. Immediately upon waking and soon after eating. On Friday she actually went to the door and barked! Yay!!! I was beyond excited!! She's getting better ever day😃 I just get upset thinking where/what she came from.

    Tonka will sit at the top of the stairs and stare out as if deep in thought lol, eventually making the most pitiful crying sounds if we don't notice. When he is feeling brave he will venture down the stairs on his own an sit on his bum in front of the door staring up the stairs at us. If he REALLY has to go, he will bark :p. I don't think he has had an accident since about 5 months old and he will be a year Feb 3rd.

    We hung the bells from the doorknob and jingled them every time we took them out. They caught on to that fairly quickly. Then we invested in doggy doors. Now they just excuse themselves and go out whenever they need.

    Bogey is only 3 months, so I watch him like a hawk. I take him out on the same schedule you do and have the same results. Bogey will go to the door and sit, but we have only a few seconds to decide if he is just sitting there on the rug ( which he does frequently) or if he needs to pee. We' ve guessed wrong on occasion! So far no outward warning that he has to go. We tried the bells- he thinks they are a tug toy! Ya gotta love them!!

    eventually they will go to the door or talk to you. Since you are a first timer. Just a reminder to keep the tail pocket extra clean and the nose rope. Stuff will grow in these areas and get very very sore.

    We didnt crate train Meeko but everytime we took him out the back yard we would get his paw and lift it to lightly scratch the door and praise him for doin it then goin out the back. He soon clicked on and taps the door himself now x

    We take Usko out at least three times a day and he doesn't have to go in between. We got our new baby home today, so he just goes...

    Only two of mine will tap ..... Daddy and Tia ... the rest will just go back to the door and stare at it as if they are willing it to open on it's own!!!!

    Izzy just started to ring the bell but she is 6 months now and the bell became a training tool and no longer a toy for her! Yayyyyy

    at 6 months old Lola finally started walking to the backdoor instead of one of us carrying her to the backdoor but we still have to round her up and dribble her soccer style to go out.we have a pretty regimented schedule. but Lola will give us a stare that is just seconds longer than usual if she has to poop out of schedule.
