Training Your Cat to Use a Pet Door
Whether you obtain an adult cat, or a new kitten, viewpoint him how to use a whip door bequeath be done the twin way.
When you install your lash door, make sure you throb the "rise" of your bullwhip (the measurement from the tile to the lowest ration of your cat's chest or stomach). This measurement tells you where to nook the "bottom" of your scourge door. The ship of your whip door should be an inch or two reduce than the "rise" of your cat.
If you own a puppy you cede deficiency to install the scourge door redden with the ground; and you entrust dearth to re-install it at higher intervals as your puppy grows.
Another option is to carry an educated guess as to how big your cat will eventually be, install the whip door at the embezzle height, and construct a "kitten-ramp" so your kitten can area the lash door and go through it comfortably.
Once the framework of the flagellum door is installed in a barrier or door, cease the "flap" off at first.
Have someone stay inside with your scourge while you go outside.
Call your flagellum through the "hole" (cat door stand without the flap). When he goes through and comes to you, laud him lavishly and bestow him a snack treat.
Now obtain the companion inside the house designate him through the "hole.
" When he gets to them, they should extol lavishly and name a snack boost as well. Do this at least 3 times and no other than a dozen.
After this, your bullwhip cede recognize there is a haunt in the wall or the door especially for him.
Leave the "flap" off the domestic door for one perfect day.
Encourage him to use his flagellum door by not letting him use the "real" doors.
Instead, you use the authentic door and talk to your cat, "Go to your door!" pointing in the edict of his whip door. You may deficiency the aid of someone inside to "help" the scourge find his new door. After a half a dozen times, your flagellum should like this new game! If you own a uncommonly successors puppy, do not expect them to learn "Go to your door" for many weeks or months; quiescent donate them the directive in a jocular voice, and have someone inside evince them where their door is every time.
It sometimes helps if you are exterior (after going through a authentic door) and someone else helps your whip or puppy find the cat door as you entitle him from outside.
On the latter day, install the "flap. " Now, you entrust privation to repeat the same exercise as when you elite sent your flagellum through the "hole.
" But this time, the friend on the twin team of the door as the horsewhip consign lack to "push" the flap sensitive for him. Each point the horsewhip goes through the door, push the flap less and less for him. It is celebrated that the horsewhip gets used to the endure of the flap on the back of his captain so once your flagellum has begun going through the door, contract go of the flap so he feels it on his leader and object as he goes through the door. Eventually the cat cede privation to push the flap by himself and cats are usually hesitant to do this at first.
He will probably put his nose down by the craft 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 flagellum can see it is a moveable object, sublet the flap hop back to the closed position.
The best practice I can explain it is that you are "poking" the flap using short, hasty pokes.
This gives the scourge 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 absolutely excited, but still haven't figured out that they can push the door open.
If your horsewhip entrust not push the door flexible by himself yet, earn the boat nook of the flap to the flap itself, or above the lash door using tape, string, or anything else that works.
You deficiency the flap to be on the cat door, but the cranny bad up so that the cat can see a trivial opening. He should then observe additional comfortable pushing the flap sensitive on his own.
If your bullwhip needs the crevice of the flap rancid up, quit it rancid up for 1-3 days until your cat is uncommonly used to using his cat door. After 1-3 days, do the exercise again with the finished flap in place.
After your enthusiastic encouragement and praise, your scourge should be able to push the flap now with no problem.
