    Flies are an issue here too,some potted mint at the door is meant to deter them. That seemed to work last year.. But this year we are swamped with them.

    I am planning on buying those hanging fly sticky paper things and put then outside the back door soon. I had considered buying a dog door, but Leo will just grow too quickly for it :/ (as I suspect so would Inca!)

    There is a slot in pet door for sliding doors I have seen online

    Wouldn't the problem be solved if we could teach dogs to open and close doors behind them?

    Very acheivable!

    You just need to be able to tie rope or something to the door that the dog can pull to open, and the same on the other side.

    Seems a fair bit better. No more vomiting or diarrhoea, just that bout early last night, that's been it. Still not eating, but has been able to run around a bit and proceeded to wreck a plant in my garden for the first time EVER!
    She just goes up and down, so I honestly think the vet is right and she has a very sensitive tummy. I will treat her as if she has IBS or IBD and hope she grows out of it, or we can alleviate the problem.

    That's a problem though Angela.
    Our back door does not have a normal handle. It is a fingerprint and keypad design. We added it after the robbery, and it is fantastic! But not really openable (is that a word?) by Inca.

    Damn probably not workable lol!

    I did have an outlandish idea

    One of those remote collars for Inca with the little tag that sends a signal, only instead of going to a doggie door, install an automatic door that picks up on her signal and opens for her! Still have the fingerprint & keypad part for you and your family to get in and out

    Maybe a bit over the top though...
