Almost any normal, well-adjusted pet can be easily trained to use a pet door by using a few simple guidelines.
Normally, pets are so happy to be able to go outside that training is a breeze. However, your pet doesn't know what a pet door flap is at first so he will need to be shown how it works.
Training isn't difficult. The only mistake to avoid in training is creating fear of the pet door. Try your best not to frighten your pet! He may associate his fright with the pet door and not want to go near it again. Probably the most common way to frighten is to shove him through the pet door. This creates or worsens fear and does not teach your pet what you want him to learn.
