This is how I potty trained my loving toy poodle. So I decided to check out the bow wow button, cuz I heard they're pretty cool. You record a message and it plays it back when your dog hits it. So you know exactly what he wants when he wants it. I know you're thinking it was hard to train her to hit the button, but it was way easy. Just go to http://www.bowowbutton.com and watch the instructional video. it tells you how to train them-easy!
