Maybe you can just push the bell each time right before you take him out. Jax used to poke the doorknob when she wanted to go out. It would make a very distinctive sound. I never taught her that. She just picked up on it when I opened the door to take her out. Good to hear your making progress. Good Luck!

I just hope it's loud enough because I am partially deaf, and when I'm doing dishes or in the laundry room, I don't hear a damned thing. I would get something loud, but living in a duplex doesn't allow that. I already have special permission to have my dog here, in no pet housing, because of my disability (not the deafness but another disability). I don't want to push my luck.

Maybe you can teach him a different cue when he wants to go out? Kali sits in front of me a stares at me and Koby comes and puts his head on my lap and if I don't get it right away, he does this funny dance. Maybe when you see him at the door, you can call him over and ask him if he has to go potty? Good Luck!

Walmart sells remote controlled, push button door bells. I bought a set with one noise box, and extra buttons. They have dip switches so you can link them all together. You could plug more than one box in so you can always hear the bell it he presses it.
The next step is modifying the button to make it easy for the dog to push.
For a small dog, try just mounting the button at a good height for his nose, or place it on the floor for his feet.
