Housetraining your new puppy or stubborn pooch with doggie door bells and matts like these promise a better solution and rather quickly.

Housebreaking your puppy or new dog is a small investment of time-- considering the peace of mind you'll have in return.

I've looked at the following potty training for dog kits: Koolatron Pet Chimes, Poochie-Bells, House Breaking Door Mats, Tell Bell and the Petsafe Smart Doorbell Kit.

Take a look at how to housebreak your puppy using these dog housebreaking kits, and get your dog housebroken and "going" outside!

Dog Housebreaking / House Training: Tell Bell - Compact & Convenient Potty Training Kit for Dogs

Make housebreaking your dog easier with this tried and true Tell Bell. No marks on doors from scratching (which is a big boon for me and other dog owners with large breeds). You'll have different results if you've more than one dog. The reviews do show how varied each dog can be with one learning much faster than the other but usually, it only takes a few days for your pooch to get the idea: ringing bell/door opens. You more than likely know how smart your dog is and how long he or she may take. Don't worry, though; they'll get it sooner or later!

My dog, an Olde Boston bulldog, loves his little patch out front. There's a short utility box/pole thing, 3 smaller trees including a Japanese maple and pine straw. He sniffs, snorts and squats--in that order!
