Hubert scratches at the door and Toby will bark but Eeyore just waits for someone else to go out. He doesn't have accidents just never really even sits at the door and waits. I guess he just holds it until someone else needs to go. I would love a dog door but we have storm doors on the outside and then our regular doors have panes of glass all the way down. All our doors match so it would be a pain to replace just one.

Mine a fairly regualr, first thing in the morning, perhaps again if we're late for a walk, again in the afternoon & lastly before bed. BUT if it raining & oh they hate the stuff I have to push them out the door!

Franksmum, it took our old rescue, Hub awhile to master the dog door, too. Our most memorable incident was when he got the front half of his body out the door, with the important half still iside. Peed. Then backed up and came looking for praise, as he was very proud of himself.

It took Hub awhile to learn the concept of "all the way out the door."

My way to train them for the dog door involved opening it and throwing a treat out. Getting stuck halfway way out is funny. Bassets act like they don't know their back halves exist sometimes.
