Default How to teach a dog to use the pet door...

It is not that easy. The first time, you have to lure the dog in and out of the door by holding it open, offering them a treat to come through etc. The problem is that they do not recognize it as a door.

But if you have one dog who already understands how to use the door, it is a snap! Zircon taught Sophia, and even though these pics are old, I thought you might enjoy them.

Image 1:
Zircon: "OK Red, here goes! You get a special lesson today!
Sophia: "What is so special about that piece of wood?"

Image 2:
Zircon: "See? You don't have to wait for furless leaders to open the door when you want to go in or out!"

Image 3:
Sophia: "How did you go through that piece of wood?!?"

Image 4:
Zircon: "No, no, you have to PUSH it with your snout!"
Sophia: "Like this?"

Image 5:
Sophia: "Ohh, I get it! This is grrrrreat!"

LOL!!!! Great pics

I wish I could put one of those in but my indoor cats would want to use it and my outdoor cats would figure it out as well.
