what a cutie!! It's very easy to teach them to do that. You can start by teaching her 'touch' with her nose. Basically anytime she touches your hand with her nose, reward and once she starts doing it more consistently you can add the word touch or whatever you want. then you can start getting her to touch the bells so they ring when she's getting that, start opening the door everytime she rings them. Once you start doing this with them, they start to get things really fast and they start trying different things to see what they need to do to get a reward. I've done this with my dog, she's 7 and has no problem learning new stuff this way. Once she puts everything together you won't need the treats anymore. Going out will be the reward.
