Dog owner’s house train their Dog’s in various ways these days. Many owners choose to use potty pads/pee pads for their Dog’s, or newspaper…  even a cat litter tray turned puppy tray.

One thing is for sure, house training can be a very testing time for both owner and Giant Schnauzer.  So, how we implement house training, needs considerable thought from the outset. 

Also worth considering, is the age of the Dog.  Is it a puppy we are house training?  Or an older Dog? Often overlooked are Dog’s from  a rescue shelter,  and of course the situation they have been living in for however long they have been in the shelter, is of course going to dictate how their toilet habits are going to be.  For example:

    • If the Dog has been living in a kennel at the shelter, where they are having to toilet in the space they have available, once they become re-homed, they then of course need to re-learn the house rules and be re-taught the protocol for needing to go outside to toilet.
    • Then if the Dog we are house training is a young Puppy, it is often a tad easier, as all the pup wants to do is please its owner and will absorb all the information quite quickly.

However, there will be the occasional accident while training.  Hence we do need to exercise a bit of patience, which isn’t always a bad thing…

There are different ways in which you can train your Dog, using reward based training. But – How great would it be to teach your Dog to ring the bell when he/she needs to go potty?

How do I house train my Dog using a bell?

Have you ever considered using a doorbell to house train your Giant Schnauzer?

House Training Your Giant Schnauzer by Bell-Training

The Mighty Paw Smart Bell allows you to potty train your Giant Schnauzer from the comfort of your own home … but with a slight twist. 
Using a Bell is a great way to house train your Dogs, regardless of their size and temperament.
As with clicker training, house training via a bell, is a sound based method of training, using classical conditioning.
This enables you to teach your Dog to do certain tasks or learn certain behaviors with the aid of the sound that comes from the device you are using.  You would then follow it with a tasty reward.  Think of it like a camera captures/marks a snapshot of a moment in time, the sound device you use to teach your Dog marks the desired behavior you are wanting and helps your Giant understand that what he just did resulted in a tasty reward…  and therefore, increases the likely hood of your Dog repeating the behavior.

Where did Dog training by Sound originate from?

Training behaviour by sounds goes back to the days of the Pavlovian conditioning era, ‘Circa’ 1905.  It is a fantastic training method for any Dog, especially your Giant Schnauzer. House training, like other aspects of Dog training, should be a happy experience for both the Dog and the owner.  In many cases, house training is a difficult time, and needs patience and perseverance.  The Mighty Paw Smart Bell can help make this a great time for bonding too…  by turning the training into more play based training.
