Imagine you are at home and friends are visiting. The doorbell rings, "Ding-dong", and your friends say, "Someone is at your door," and you say, "That's my dog." How do you think they will react? Well, we heard all kinds of reactions, but they all started with "Wow!" and ended with giggles and laughter.
Dogs scratch and damage doors to be let in or out. It is frustrating for us and our dogs. Pebble Smart Doggie Doorbell transforms this common and vexing problem to a fun training opportunity. It is easy to install and no wiring or tools are required. With the built-in treat holder, dogs can be trained easily to ring the Doggie Doorbell. It is a new way for our dogs to communicate their needs to us. It is a fun way to train our dogs and have a great bonding time with them.
- The Doggie Doorbell is also a great tool for potty training. Once you puppy learns to ring the doorbell to go out, you can be assured that you would hear him from anywhere in the house.
- Check out our Twin-Pack version. Your dog will let you know when he needs to go out or come in.
- Any unit with the same frequency type will work together as a set.
- Concerned about excessive ringing? Our instruction manual contains easy steps for correction.
- One small 12v battery is included in the transmitter. It will last over a year on average use. Inexpensive replacements are available online. Two AA batteries are required for the chime.

The yellow button is mounted at cat-head height on the stationary half of a french door to our deck. We can see what the cat is doing through the door, and he can see us inside the house.
Yesterday he rang the bell four times to come in during the day. We did not prompt him in any way.
But, as mentioned, we’re having mixed results. Today as I was getting ready to write this, he kept looking in at me through one window and then another (his former way of seeking entrance). I ignored him, but he didn’t go to the french door a few feet away to ring the bell.
I finally surrendered, opened the french door, and called him — and then shut the door. He came around the corner, ignored the doorbell, and stood expectantly. I did not open the door. Only then did he “see the light” and ring the doorbell. I let him in and gave him some treats.
REASON FOR BUYING
During the daytime we’re used to seeing the cat’s head through a window when he wants to be let in. It’s his system, and it works —- during the daytime.
At night, when the curtains are drawn, sometimes he’ll meow to be let it. That works in spring and fall when we have the windows open. But in heating and air-conditioning seasons, it doesn’t.
We bought the doorbell for the cat to use at night in the summer and winter. Has he ever used it at night? Nope. So in that regard, our verdict on the doorbell is very much out. But we remain hopeful.
One important note: We do not let the cat stay out overnight. We typically call him to come inside from 10:30 to midnight. He’s usually quite reliable about coming when we call, but clearly he would rather be outside at night. Yes, he occasionally meows to be let in during the evening, but after a nosh, he usually wants to head out again. Why he hasn’t used the doorbell to get a quick evening snack is a mystery.
The two-part device (button and ringer) is well made. The ringer is quite loud and receives a signal when placed anywhere in the house. We’re 100% pleased with both the button and the ringer.
My current thought is that the big yellow button is all that’s needed for a cat doorbell, provided the button is mounted at head height or slightly below.
Initially, however, I thought that the button needed to be more cat-friendly. To that end I wove a lattice thingee out of the same rope that I had used to re-cover a scratching post. I tied a paint stir stick onto the yellow button and then tied the lattice thingee onto the stick. (See photo.)
The idea was that the cat would scratch the thingee as he would a scratching post. The cat did not agree and, to my knowledge, has never once pawed the thingee. However, once in a while he does ring the bell by rubbing his body on it.
Mostly, the cat simply presses the button with his chin.
Note that we could have poured catnip into a little compartment behind the yellow button. Perhaps that would have worked wonderfully.
OUR TRAINING METHOD
At first, when he indicated he wanted in (via the head-at-the-window method), I would go out the side door, collect the cat, carry him to the french door, hold his paw and scratch the lattice thingee with it. He seemed clueless. Once the doorbell rang, my wife would open the door and let us in.
On later attempts, I pushed his head/chin gently into the yellow button. At my wife’s suggestion, at one point I even got on my hands and knees and head-butted the yellow button myself. The theory was that since the cat is a bit of a copy-cat, he would follow my example. And perhaps he has, as the head butt/chin rub is his usual way of ringing the bell.
After he got the hang of pushing the button, I no longer went outside but instead stood inside and motioned with my hand for him to push it. He eventually would.
Since then he’s pushed the button on his own, both when he can see us inside and when we’re in other rooms with no view of the deck. But always in the daytime and not at night, when the curtains are closed.
Maybe some evening soon….
Then again, perhaps he’s already using the bell as much as he ever will, given that he really, really likes to outside in the evening. Perhaps it was too much to expect him to ask to come in at night.
She sometimes uses it to play; pushing the button running out and in a circle like a crazy pup and then runs full speed back in. LoL. We find out Potty Bell Prankster hilarious so it works for us, and as long as you have a sense of humor with your pup, this is very worth it. We have a happy puppy and we're happy she's no longer pottying indoors
