How do I train my pet to use the pet door?
Most pets will learn to use the door with a few short training sessions. However, some pets can take a little longer to become comfortable and more confident using the door. The most important rule is to be patient with your pet. Let your pet work out for himself that he can go through the pet door. With a little patience and training, you and your pet will soon enjoy the freedom your new pet door provides.
Lift and hold or tape the flap open using string to help your pet become familiar with the pet door opening. Make sure the taped flap is secure and won't fall during training.
Try to encourage your pet to come through the pet door. Don't force your pet through the door or he may become frightened.
Give your pet motivation to use the door. Try using treats or toys to encourage your pet. Food is a great motivator. First, feed your pet close to the pet door on the inside. Once your pet is comfortable approaching the door, move the food to the other side of the door to try to get your pet to go through the door.
After your pet has used the pet door a few times, hold the flaps open and try to get your pet to go through the door. As your pet goes through the door, gently lower the flaps so the flap touches your pet’s back. This will help your pet become familiar with the flap.
Encourage your pet to push through the flap on his own.
