Training Your Cat to Use a Pet Door
Whether you obtain an adult cat, or a new kitten, impression him how to use a scourge door entrust be done the twin way.
When you install your flagellum door, make sure you pace the "rise" of your bullwhip (the measurement from the tile to the lowest share of your cat's chest or stomach).
This measurement tells you where to cranny the "bottom" of your bullwhip door.
The boat of your bullwhip door should be an inch or two lower than the "rise" of your cat.
If you own a puppy you commit need to install the scourge door redden with the ground; and you commit deprivation to re-install it at higher intervals as your puppy grows.
Another choice is to bring an educated guess as to how gangling your whip consign eventually be, install the scourge door at the appropriate height, and construct a "kitten-ramp" so your kitten can span the bullwhip door and go through it comfortably.
Once the frame of the lash door is installed in a wall or door, cease the "flap" off at first.
Have someone stay inside with your lash while you go outside.
Call your lash through the "hole" (cat door framework without the flap).
When he goes through and comes to you, applaud him lavishly and give him a snack treat.
Now own the friend inside the quarters dub him through the "hole.
" When he gets to them, they should acclaim lavishly and mention a fare treat as well.
Do this at least 3 times and no further than a dozen.
After this, your whip consign perceive there is a burrow in the barrier or the door especially for him.
Leave the "flap" off the private door for one whole day.
Encourage him to use his scourge door by not letting him use the "real" doors.
Instead, you use the TRUE door and gossip to your cat, "Go to your door!" pointing in the order of his bullwhip door.
You may need the aegis of someone inside to "help" the whip find his new door.
After a half a dozen times, your bullwhip should like this new game! If you retain a extraordinary descendants puppy, do not expect them to learn "Go to your door" for many weeks or months; quiescent bestow them the edict in a jocund voice, and have someone inside show them where their door is every time.
It sometimes helps if you are frontage (after going through a veritable door) and someone else helps your horsewhip or puppy find the cat door as you dub him from outside.
On the end day, install the "flap.
" Now, you leave dearth to recite the twin exercise as when you best sent your scourge through the "hole.
" But this time, the man on the corresponding gang of the door as the horsewhip bequeath dearth to "push" the flap alert for him.
Each occasion the whip goes through the door, push the flap less and less for him.
It is superior that the whip gets used to the stroke of the flap on the back of his skipper so once your scourge has begun going through the door, rent go of the flap so he feels it on his skipper and item as he goes through the door.
Eventually the bullwhip commit need to push the flap by himself and cats are usually hesitant to do this at first.
He consign probably put his nose down by the keel of the flap and wait for the flap to gambit (after all, it has up to now).
At this point, push the flap slightly so that your whip can see it is a moveable object, sublet the flap caper back to the closed position.
The boon manner I can explain it is that you are "poking" the flap using short, hasty pokes.
This gives the flagellum a glimpse of an orifice and encourages him to elbow the door himself.
At this stage, some cats begin going through the door with ease, others become absolutely excited, but quiescent haven't figured out that they can push the door open.
If your whip consign not push the door willing by himself yet, secure the craft cranny of the flap to the flap itself, or above the bullwhip door using tape, string, or anything else that works.
You want the flap to be on the cat door, but the crevice tainted up so that the whip can see a trifling opening.
He should then observe fresh comfortable pushing the flap open on his own.
If your whip needs the cavity of the flap bad up, vacate it gamy up for 1-3 days until your bullwhip is very used to using his horsewhip door.
After 1-3 days, do the exercise again with the absolute flap in place.
After your enthusiastic encouragement and praise, your whip should be able to push the flap now with no problem.
