LOL at least she was smart enough to realize a bell = treats!!!We got these pee pad things for housebreaking Lucy (my dachshund) and they didn't work. So then, we taught her how to ring a bell so we know when she needs to go outside. But, now, she uses the bell for all types of things: ringings the bell then when she gets your attention she walks over to the bacon. lol
I wish you luck with housebreaking!
