    The Pet Door: Your Dog Moves, You Don't

     

    If you have a dog, you must be responsible for it, which means that you'll acquire some obligations. Very often, pups are bought on an impulse because they're cute or because one of your children asks for one, and it isn't until later that you realize what it takes to have a dog.

    Dogs (and cats too) don't live only on pet food, they also need water, a place to sleep, a place where to relieve themselves, sun and protection from it, etc. You might have heard that getting a pet door installed is a great way to make life easier for you while getting some of your pet's needs taken care of. Here are some things that you need to think about when you are deciding whether or not to install one of these doors.

    Security

    Pet doors are generally safe when installed correctly. There are some people that think that a burglar can break into their houses through a pet door, and in a few cases, they might not be too far from the truth. Big and large breeds will need a corresponding pet door, and if big enough, this door might let a human reach inside in an attempt to open the door from the inside. Fortunately, you can try the same trick yourself before buying the door; just use your arm and see how long you can stretch it through the trap door in an attempt to reach the approximate distance of your door knob. If you can reach your doorknob, obviously the door is not safe. Pet doors designed for small pets usually don't have this problem.

    Usability

    One of the advantages of getting a pet door installed is that your dog (or cat) will use it ALL the time. Make sure that the pet door is big enough for your animal (future growth considered as well) and that the door isn't so heavy that the animal can't push it open.

    Some people buy a pup and then are surprised to learn the responsabilities they acquired as well. Fortunately, installing a pet door can help you take care of some of your pet's needs. You can get a pet door online or at most pet supply stores.
