Some pets pick up the trick of using this door and immediately start exercising their freedom to come and go, but others need a little help. If your companion needs training, try these tips:
- Lift the flap yourself and show them the way in.
- Sit on the opposite side of the door from your pet and call them, squeak their favorite chew toy, or offer a strong-smelling treat to lure then through.
- If that doesn't work, try propping the door open. When your dog or cat gets into the habit of accessing the yard through the Patio Pet Door, you can lower the flap again.
