Or you can do the bell thing. Personally I did not want them ringing a bell everytime they saw a bird or squirrel out the window, so we never used a sound like that.
I wonder if a dog would ring a bell so it could go after a squirrel. That is funny! Marty jumped up and down in front of door if he has to go really badly. I try to read my dog body language , my dogs will pant heavy when need to go out or act restless. The OP could try to train her dog to go get her by touching her then running to the door. My hearing dog did this to let me know someone was at the door or the phone was ringing.
