How do you teach a dog to use a doggy door?
There is one in this house that was installed before we moved in. For one thing the door is much too high.
Red used it once with me luring him back in to the house which is his prefered place to be. He banged his hip on it and will not even stick his head in the flap any more. Not even for freeze dried string cheese.
Blue is sure that the flap is trying to eat her. She will peek in if the kid holds the flip open for her.
Both dogs stand outside and cry to come in. Neither see the doggy door as safe option.
