We use the "Tell Bell" from Sherri's Boutique (floor bell) & are very happy with it. I thought about using bells to hang on the door knob, but someone mentioned that anyone coming in or out that door would cause the bells to jingle & it might confuse the pups. Since the door we take our dogs out is the main door we come & go by we decided to do the floor bell & it has worked out very well for us.
