1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect. 2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff. 3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned. 4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.
Subject: Okami and the Door bell Sat Jul 19, 2014 5:46 pm
So here is Okami being a goof nut at my doorbell.... I found out that this makes her have something to say every time I ring it. I don't do it often to her though because it does seem to make her a little anxious, so I got this video so I don't have to do it to her anymore. HOWEVER it is really funny to watch!!!! She is in the crate because I didn't want her to run out the door while I had it open.
PS: The Thumbnail looks like a mug shot hahaha cracks me up.

Loki actually woke up from his nap and came to look at Okami. I will have to video Loki with his doorbell action. He does not make any noise when it rings. However, he amuses himself at the backdoor by ringing it repeatedly to let himself into the house.

That's what I need - how do I teach Ami to ring the doorbell?

I didn't teach him. He had a bad habit of jumping on the door and I think he figured out on his own if he jumps up right on the doorbell, it results in him being let back in the house quicker.

Amy- I think it would be a similar training as how to teach a puppy to use bells to tell you when to go outside...
If you end up getting the one from Amazon you just posted about..
Every time you go inside, just have him ring it and treat when he successfully does it, you can make his paw go up to hit it, or teach him to nose it, which ever you think he would respond better to, and give a word when you guys step inside such as "Inside" or "House" etcetera in a sing-bird tone ... and eventually he should get the association that ringing that bell means you guys are going inside.
