what is a good way to train a dog to go through a doggie door?
she will walk through if we open it for her but she will not push it open herself
Try putting a treat on the other side. Push it a tiny bit open with your hand to see if she'll go the rest of the way through. Ignore the look that says: "Please open it all the way for me you silly human".
It's okay to give her a gentle push on the rump to get her to go through. Once she's gone through a few times, she should get the hang of it.
Try going to the other side of the door & calling her while holding a treat within sniffing distance.
You could try opening the door 1/2 way at first & gradually lowering the distance it is open, each time she does go through give her loads of encouragement & a treat.
Just keep at it it, perseverance should win through in the end, she'll get used to it!
