Some pets initially resist pushing through the regular pet door flaps so we offer a flexible training flap as an optional add-on. The training flap is made of a similar material to our regular flap but it has no strikes and has been vertically slashed several times to make it very easy to push through. It does not, however, provide the energy efficiency of our regular flap. Therefore, once an animal has gotten used to the training flap, the standard flaps should be re-installed one at a time.
If you order this at the same time as you order your door, we will install it for you at the factory and send the regular flaps (predrilled for ease of installation) in addition to your door. As a standard, only one training flap is supplied with each order. Typically, you would train the animal to use the single training flap, then switch it out for one of our regular flaps and finally attach the second regular flap on a double flap model. If you prefer to have two training flaps sent with your door, please order an additional one from our parts page.
If you do not order a training flap with your initial door order but find that you need one at a later date, you can order them by visiting our replacement parts page. Please add 5% to the cost of the door for training flaps.
