    Should You Install A Dog Door?


    When owning a dog, it's always a good thing to make it as independent as possible. For instance, if you dog really has to go outside in the middle of the night, you have no choice but to get up, annoying as it might be. When you install a dog door, you can continue sleeping, or working, or doing whatever you are doing without interrupting it because Fido needs to go outside urgently.

    Here are some important things to consider when thinking about installing a dog door or a dog flap in your home for your dog

    Measures of Safety

    It is very important to consider the safety of a dog door in your home. Small dogs or toy dogs are not really a problem, since the doors for them tend to be very small. But large dogs will need large dog doors in order to fit through them without hurting themselves with the edges. With a big dog door, the chances of somebody trying to get inside your house through it increase. Or, even a smaller door can allow an intruder to reach up and unlock your door without even being able to crawl through.

    When you look for a dog door, make sure to mention these points to the different sellers you talk to. Your local pet supply store should have information to help you make your decision based on safety.

    You Dog Counts

    Of course, the most important thing is to make sure that your dog can actually go through the door effortlessly. If your dog is too big to fit through a door, there's no point in buying it; also consider if your dog is strong enough to push open the door or if the door is too heavy for your pet to open. This last detail gets overlooked very often.

    Getting a dog door is very convenient. No more getting up at night to let your dog out urgently. When buying a dog door always see that your dog can fit through it and open it before purchasing it.
