How can we keep our dog from jumping on the door to let us know she's ready to come in from the outside?

Our dog is a little bit afraid of noise so a device that makes noise to alert us to her being at the door probably wouldn't work very well.

You may want to check out my modification to a wireless doorbell switch. Place the doorbell inside the house so she won't be scared of the noise and and train her to press the switch to signal you. Works great for our dogs.

Our dog did the same thing so my sister made a drawing of a person and taped it to the window so are dog was to afraid to jump up! We were really surprised!
. Great idea! . I'll have to try that with my Australian Cattle Dog - she will scratch at the door if she gets shut outside. It doesn't happen very often, but she has managed to put a few scratches in the glass.

Elaborate thought - Get a cheap / old cellphone and program a speed-dial. Connect it to a big button or lever and train your dog to use that. The phone would then call you? If you have ideas for 'noise' move the noise away from the door? L
