We have all used doorbells to get into houses and buildings, but what if your dog could use them too?

An inventor in Eugene, Oregon has made it possible.

Pebble is and old dog that is learning new tricks.  His owner Keith Jin invented a doggy doorbell, after Pebble started scratching and ruining doors around his home every time he wanted to be let out.

After about a year of testing, he came up with a portable, mountable doorbell, that can be used inside and outside the house.  Jin said the doggy doorbell has been so successful, they're looking to expand.

The Pebble Smart Doggy Doorbell costs around $30, which includes two doorbells and two receivers.  For more information head to http://www.indiegogo.com/pebblesmart

YOU MAY HAVE HEARD THE OLD SAYING YOU CAN'T TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS.

{12:59:52-12:59:54}(nat - pebble running into room. 'Hi Pebble.')[Duration:0'02"]

     WELL PEBBLE HERE PROVES THAT MAY NOT BE THE CASE.

{13:00:40-13:00;41}(nat - pebble ringing doorbell.)[Duration:0'01"]

     YOU SEE, PEBBLE CAN RING THE DOORBELL, LIKE ANY HUMAN.

{13:03:47-13:03:49}(nat- rings doorbell - opens door. 'What a good boy.')[Duration:0'02"]

     BUT THIS ISN'T ANY OLD DOORBELL.

{13:00:29-13:00:30}(it's named after him, Pebble Smart.)[Duration:0'01"]

     HIS OWNER KEITH JIN INVENTED THIS DOGGY DOORBELL, AFTER PEBBLE STARTED SCRATCHING AND RUINING DOORS AROUND HIS HOME EVERY TIME HE WANTED TO BE LET OUT.

{12:53:10-12:53:13}(I decided maybe there's a way to train him.)[Duration:0'03"]

     AFTER ABOUT A YEAR OF TESTING, HE CAME UP WITH THIS PORTABLE, MOUNTABLE DOORBELL, THAT CAN BE USED INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE HOUSE.

{13:03:07-13:03:10}(nat- ringing doorbell from outside. 'Hi pebble!')[Duration:0'03"]

{12:55:22-12:55:25}(the design has training in mind.)[Duration:0'03"]
{12:55:39-12:55:47}(when he sniffs through the hole, there's a treat in there, oh look get it, so he inadvertantly pushes this.)[Duration:0'08"]

     HE SAYS THE DOGGY DOORBELL HAS BEEN SO SUCCESSFUL, THEY'RE LOOKING TO EXPAND.

{12:57:54-12:57:56}(other animals can use this as well besides dogs?)[Duration:0'02"]
{12:57:56-12:58:08}(right, cats can use this. I think eventually we'll make a version especially for cats, that's easier to train for cats.)[Duration:0'12"]

     AND THE NEXT TIME YOU WANT TO KNOW IF YOUR DOG NEEDS TO DO ITS BUSINESS, JUST LISTEN FOR THE DOORBELL.

{13:01:33-13:01:34}(nat - pebble ringing doorbell.)[Duration:0'01"]
