first off how big is the crate? it should be big enough for him to turn around and thats about it. secound stop giving him water about 1/2 before his last walk. take one late if possable 12:30am if possable. see if that helps. I bell trained CC but after she was potty trained so she wouldn't bark to be let out.

Biz is bell trained
basicly all you do is every time you go to take your dog out to potty, take his/her paw and ring the bell with it
they will quickly catch onto the idea that ringing the bell means going out to potty
once they learn this it is important to make sure they go potty if they ring the bell and they dont just learn that they can just go out to sniff around for the fun of it
the bell means potty and thats all

hope that helps

Atticus is bell trained. I first put the bells up. If he looked at them, I clicked the clicker and gave him a treat. When he was consistently looking at it is when I began to take him outside.

As we progressed, if we were sitting in the house and he even remotely looked at the bell, I clicked, treated, and took him outside.


The down side is, now he likes to ring it just to go outside. BUT, if he pulls that stunt, I make sure he stays out there and squeezes at least ONE drop of pee out before coming back in.
