7. That is very good advice.
I bought a sleigh bell (light weight from a craft store) and tied it at nose level for my 2 Westies. Every time I let them out, I would gently bump their nose against the bell to make it ring. It wasn't long before they both rang the bell to be let out. Benefit was that I could hear the bell in another part of the house.
