puppy door phobia

Pup 2 will be 6 years old next month. And for 6 years she's been going in and out through her puppy door. Until last week. Last week she decided that she's afraid of way only. She would go out, but wouldn't come back through. Instead she would whine until we opened the door.

We tried tempting her with ice cream ... nope.

Hubby removed the frame ... nope.

Not shown in photo - hubby ended up cutting a bigger hole. Even then she would whine instead of coming back in. It took us a few days to realize that she would go in and out just fine if we weren't around, but if we were home, we would lure her through with treats. Smart dog. Dumb humans.

Been there, done that. Only it's the basement steps with our dog. They've got us well-trained, don't they?

I can see her, snickering behind her paw...
