Potty Training Your Mini Pig to Ring a Bell

Potty training your mini pig to ring a bell to let you know when it’s time to go out is so easy!  It takes a minimal investment of time for a huge return in convenience.

You can use a large jingle bell or smaller bell from a craft or hardware store.  Tie it to string that can be attached to the door knob.  If you’re handy the bell could be mounted from the wall just next to the door.  The key will be to make sure the bell is at your pig’s snout height.

Call attention to the bell with your finger, a target stick, or a tiny dab of peanut butter.  Choose your command word, “Bell”, “Out”, “Potty”.  As soon as your pig bumps the bell, praise, reward, and take your pig outside.  Repeat multiple times until your pig has proven to be successful.  Now you will want to make sure your pig rings the bell every time you would be inclined to take your pig out for a routine potty break.  Do not reward any potty bell ringing that is not related to your routine potty breaks so that you are preventing unnecessary bell ringing.  Mini pigs are so smart they will ring that bell all day for treats!
