Hello Everyone! I am a new owner of a 5 month old cockapoo- his name is Frank. He is my first dog too! I am already in love; he is very affectionate and seems very smart. We are still having some potty training issues, but I have read just about everything out there on training, so I'm hopeful it will work if I keep at it. I do have a question though....we have a bell around the door that we ring before taking him out. He keeps ringing it to go outside, but he just wants to get my attention and go play!! He does it about every 15 minutes. I live in Indiana so it is about 10 degrees, which makes this not very fun! I don't want to discourage him from ringing it, but should I take him out to play all those times? Thanks to anyone for help...I have felt lost the first few months with him, so it will be nice to consult some fellow cockapoo owners!
