At night, the very last thing I do is check my emails. Once I turn off my computer, I send all the dogs go to their bed time spots. I give them one last treat. I do this every...single...night.

Now - when the dogs hear the computer shut down (that tone that plays) they all jump up and head to their bed time spots. I don't have to say a word.

I don't see why you can't do the same thing with the stove and/or phone. Set the timer - when it goes off call your pups and reward. Do it several times every day at different times during the day. Soon the timer will go off and they'll come to you for a reward.
