Web Exclusive: "Got to Go Button" for Dogs

Web Exclusive

(KYTX/CBS) - A 20 year old inventor has caught the eye of the largest retailer in the world. The college student has created the "Gotta Go" Button for dogs.

It's every dog lovers dream...and now, 20 year old Chad Bingo from Penfield is creating an easier way for dogs to tell their owners they want to go out. When Chad's dog Gracie was a puppy, she would continuously scratch the back door whenever she wanted to go out--causing damage to the door. One night Chad and his father jokingly put a staples easy button near the door, and to their surprise, Gracie pushed the button signaling that she wanted out.

"We put it by the door not expecting her to do anything and she pushed it and we heard that was easy and we thought this is a great idea."

And it was--Chad joined the Young Entrepreneurs Academy the next year and created the "Gotta Go" Button with training instructions and all. For Gracie, its like clockwork.

Chad is hoping this product makes it big--and to help the process move along, he entered Walmart's "Get On The shelf" competition. "The Gotta Go" Button made it to the second phase of the competition and now, if he gets enough votes, his product will end up on the shelves of every Walmart in the country. Now he just needs help.

"I would thank everyone this will open up so many doors I have a lot more pet ideas that will help people train their pets...pet product empire,"  says Chad

Chad says he also wants to add some new voices for the button. He says a Morgan Freeman voice could be in the works.
