I have a 12 year old poodle we just put in a doggy door and she will not use it. If I raise the flap she will come in or go out but will not push it open herself. I have tried pulling her with a leash and also coaching her with food. Please, any suggestions?

We put in a doggy door a few years ago. Two of us stood on either side of the door and held bologna for her. She'd come through to get it. She still didn't want to go through without us standing there. So then after she knew she could go through, we'd all play outside and then she'd come out to spend time with us. It still took a while for her to use it without coaxing, but now, she's fine. (03/20/2007)
