Using a doorknob is clearly a Ready Maneuver.

Most dogs and cats can figure out lever-style doorknobs, at least if they can simultaneously turn the lever and push against the door to open it, and if they're long and heavy enough to deal with a human-scale door.

Dealing with actual round doorknobs is more an exercise of manual dexterity than IQ. Dogs and cats know what they're good for, but need to get a human to turn the knob for them.

Critters like horses and goats can be trained to use levers, and some horses are clever enough to lift gate latches using their lips, but they generally don't seem to learn the trick on their own.
When I was young, we had a dog that taught herself how to turn doorknobs.

I could see someone opening a door and attacking in less than a second without Altered Time Rate so perhaps attacks (grapple then shove?) could allow you to influence a doorknob too?
