Dog doors are a win/win for pet owners: Your four-legged friend can simply let himself out to relieve himself or just get a little bit of fresh air, and you get some flexibility if you need to stay later than usual at the office or just want to stay in bed a little longer on a Saturday morning. They can also be super-useful for owners whose limited mobility can make it difficult to exercise their pets via walks or runs. Well-built, sturdy doors that can be locked easily are common-sense considerations, but features like magnets and sensors provide an added layer of control over access to your house. For some people that work all day, having a dog door allows the dog to let themselves out to do their business, explore the garden or yard, and if it is hot, choose whether or not they would rather be in or out. This also provides some extra stimulus for the dog if they are on their own for a while, and allows them to have a change of environment, stretch their legs and generally make their day more exciting.
If your dog often needs to go out to the toilet in the night too, having a dog flap and teaching your dog how to use it can mean a relaxing full night’s sleep for you, as your dog can do what he needs to do without waking you. And the best part for them is that they don’t have to wait for their owner to come back from work to let them out! Doggie doors have come to end that indoor-confinement anxiety some puppies have. No more endless barking or full-day boredom! If you can afford the cost and time to install a dog door, why not invest in something that you and your canine will love?
