How to train cats from door-dashing
I have two black cats - Newton and Newt (kitten and his mom). They often try to 'escape' the house when the door opens. Sometimes, they approach the open door slowly, giving me lots of time to close it, other times, they wait right by the edge of the door, ready to spring out to freedom.
It once took me several minutes to catch both cats and get them back inside when they dashed out and headed in opposite directions (it's almost like they planned it beforehand!)
How can I minimize (or completely eliminate) this behaviour? Ideally, I would like to be able to keep the door open i.e. when I'm bringing in groceries or taking out the trash, without either of them trying to get out.
