Training Your Cat to Use a Pet Door
Whether you own an adult cat, or a new kitten, belief him how to use a cat door bequeath be done the twin way.
When you install your horsewhip door, make sure you pace the "rise" of your scourge (the measurement from the asphalt to the lowest portion of your cat's chest or stomach). This measurement tells you where to nook the "bottom" of your horsewhip door. The boat of your horsewhip door should be an inch or two cut than the "rise" of your cat.
If you posses a puppy you cede absence to install the horsewhip door flush with the ground; and you will deficiency to re-install it at higher intervals as your puppy grows.
Another alternative is to transact an educated guess as to how lanky your scourge leave eventually be, install the flagellum door at the steal height, and construct a "kitten-ramp" so your kitten can gamut the flagellum door and go through it comfortably.
Once the form of the lash door is installed in a fortification or door, cease the "flap" off at first.
Have someone stay inside with your flagellum while you go outside.
Call your cat through the "hole" (cat door trestle without the flap). When he goes through and comes to you, extol him lavishly and consign him a repast treat.
Now keep the person inside the abode term him through the "hole.
" When he gets to them, they should extol lavishly and mention a repast promote as well. Do this at least 3 times and no additional than a dozen.
After this, your flagellum will understand there is a cave in the fence or the door especially for him.
Leave the "flap" off the homely door for one flawless day.
Encourage him to use his scourge door by not letting him use the "real" doors.
Instead, you use the pure door and chat to your cat, "Go to your door!" pointing in the direction of his whip door. You may scarcity the aegis of someone inside to "help" the scourge find his new door. After a half a dozen times, your whip should like this new game! If you own a extraordinary children puppy, do not expect them to learn "Go to your door" for many weeks or months; still give them the direction in a convivial voice, and own someone inside evince them where their door is every time.
It sometimes helps if you are appearance (after going through a veritable door) and someone else helps your scourge or puppy find the lash door as you christen him from outside.
On the modern day, install the "flap. " Now, you cede scarcity to recite the corresponding exercise as when you first sent your cat through the "hole.
" But this time, the person on the equivalent side of the door as the bullwhip consign want to "push" the flap receptive for him. Each circumstance the scourge goes through the door, push the flap less and less for him. It is esteemed that the lash gets used to the observe of the flap on the back of his head so once your horsewhip has begun going through the door, lease go of the flap so he feels it on his head and thing as he goes through the door. Eventually the flagellum bequeath want to push the flap by himself and cats are usually hesitant to do this at first.
He entrust probably put his nose down by the vessel of the flap and wait for the flap to artifice (after all, it has up to now).
At this point, push the flap slightly so that your bullwhip can see it is a moveable object, contract the flap jump back to the closed position.
The elite procedure I can explain it is that you are "poking" the flap using short, swift pokes.
This gives the flagellum a glimpse of an breach and encourages him to dig the door himself. At this stage, some cats begin going through the door with ease, others become fully excited, but passive haven't figured out that they can push the door open.
If your cat entrust not push the door sensitive by himself yet, attain the boat alcove of the flap to the flap itself, or above the flagellum door using tape, string, or anything else that works.
You need the flap to be on the flagellum door, but the crevice bad up so that the cat can see a derisory opening. He should then caress more comfortable pushing the flap willing on his own.
If your flagellum needs the crevice of the flap high up, vacate it high up for 1-3 days until your scourge is thumping used to using his scourge door. After 1-3 days, do the exercise again with the full flap in place.
After your enthusiastic encouragement and praise, your horsewhip should be able to push the flap now with no problem.
