CONVENIENT FOR YOU
– I love the saying “Your pet needs to go in & out, but WHY do you need to get up and down”. Enough said! Pet doors are great for people who work long hours, or if you need to run an extra errand on your way home. You will have the peace of mind that your pets can go in & out as they need to.
– Pet doors allow your dogs to go outside while you are at work or if you are late getting home. Some people place litter boxes for cats in the garage or outside to reduce litter box smells in the house.
STIMULATION FOR YOUR PET
– Your pets enjoy their freedom & enjoy the stimulation of being able to go in and out on their schedule. Fresh air and exercise are necessary to a pet’s health and psychological wellbeing.
PHYSICAL DISABILITY OR LIMITED MOBILITY
– Pets are such great companions & if your mobility is limited, a pet door can give you peace of mind that you still can take good care of your pet.
– Having access to a pet door can help with the housebreaking process. If dogs can get outside they are more likely to do their business where we want them to.
– Some pets have fear of loud noises (thunderstorms, cars backfiring, etc) a pet door can allow them access to a safe place inside your home. Pet doors can help protect your pet from wild animal attacks such as coyotes or Africanized Bees. A pet door can be a fire escape for your dogs.
– Pet Doors can help a sedentary dog to move around and get more exercise.
– There is many types of dog doors, for doors, walls, windows, in glass, panels. Almost every home has a location for a pet door. There are doors in multiple price points to fit your budgets.
EASE OF INSTALLATION
– “Easy Installation” is a relative term. What may be very easy for a skilled contractor, could be very difficult for the novice dog door installer. Don’t get in over your head; you need to be very careful as they are often electrical wires running through the walls. If you feel unsure, call a professional dog door installer for help. (That is what I am here for!!)
REDUCE DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIORS
– Pet doors may also help to reduce “destructive boredom” behaviors in the house.
OUTSIDE WATER BOWL
– If your dog is a messy drinker, you can move your water bowl outside. Make sure to fill the water daily, especially during the hot days of summer. Water on tile or wood floors can be a slip hazard, moving the water bowl outside helps reduce this hazard and keeps your house cleaner.
