    The Dog Door: An Easier Life For You And Your Dog


    If you have a dog, you might be trying to figure out how to foster his or her independence. 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. You might think that if you install a dog door for your dog that he or she will have more independence and you will be able to sleep late in the morning instead of having to get up at the crack of dawn to walk your pup!.

    There are some important things to take into consideration when choosing and buying a dog door for your home.

    Measures of Safety

    When getting a dog door installed, there are a few things to consider. If you have a small breed dog, then it's really not a problem becaue its door will also be small. But if you have a large dog, you might need a dog door that is very large to let your dog in and out. The bigger the dog door is, the easier it makes it for a burglar to try to use it to get into your house. Or, even a smaller door can allow an intruder to reach up and unlock your door without even being able to crawl through.

    Make sure to point out these or other concerns to the person that will sell you the dog door. You can find that sort of information at your local pet supply store as well.

    You Dog Counts

    It is also important to check to make sure your pet can actually navigate the door. 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.
