|So Isis and I, as well as my girlfriend, have been working hard! We have accomplished so much in the short time we've all been together since rescuing her in March. I had a fun idea though, I was thinking of picking up a staples "easy" button and hanging it on the wall by the door. Isis is already house broken and now sits in front of the door when she needs to go potty. She doesn't bark though or draw us to her, she just sits. Since we always supervise her this isn't a problem, but it would be nice to have more of a cue, especially if we are in another room or have company and our attention isn't focused on her. Hence the button! When she needs to go out, she can just hit the button with the nose and let us know she needs to go out! A fun exercise building off an already learned behavior sounds like a nice break from constantly learning new things and reinforcing things already learned.
So, as this is rather similar to getting a dog to ring a bell, does anyone have any suggestions or tips on how to go about this?
