3 Things to Know Before Purchasing a New Automatic Dog Door

Many pet owners find that they are busy with work, errand running, and spending so much time away from home. You might find yourself in a comparable situation. This can turn into a problem if you have a dog that you need to walk or even a cat that enjoys spending time outdoors in the safety of your back yard. If could also be that during certain times this is urgent while at others it is not, but the convenience and peace of mind you have may outweigh any cost incurred by installing a pet door.

In more recent years there has been an upgrade to the traditional pet door and now there are automatic dog doors. These doors are a practical as well as a safe way for you to let your pet in the home and out of the home without you being present. An automatic dog door will allow the pet to exit and enter the home only when they meet certain circumstances based on the setting you use on their special collar. Only pets that you set to allow in the home will be able to gain entry, so those other outside animals are unable to do so.

Pet Personality

Before you decide you are a candidate for installation of the door, it is important that you take into consideration the personality of your dog. Does your dog bark at everything or does your cat scratch on everything? If you have a dog who prefers to chew on things, for example, you will need to be sure to get a door which will be bite-proof to help protect from damage.

If you have a pet that is known for playing tricks and escaping, you will need to keep this in mind, too. An automatic door might not be the best in this circumstance unless you have a barrier that can contain your pet. Dogs that are territorial are also known for aggressive tendencies and barking when allowed to roam freely and might become upset if another animal were passing. The automatic door can be programmed to not open during night-time hours which can keep the barker inside while nocturnal animals roam outside. Once you have considered your pet better you will know what steps you need to take, if any, for making sure your dog will be safe outdoors while you aren’t home.

Choosing the Door

Often you will not find a door that is made specifically for a cat or a dog, but the size and type of door needed will be a result of the size of the pet. Doors that are small work for cats, but these doors are also meant to be used for dogs that are smaller breeds. The doors that are larger than this are meant medium sized dogs, large dogs, and oversized dogs. Unlike previous doors, it isn’t as vital to be specific because the door will automatically close when your pet moves away from the door. So even a larger door that is automatic will not allow outside animals inside.

These doors come in standard sizes, but there are ways to customize if needed so check out your options. You will see that many automatic dog doors will fall between the size of 5 inches by 8 inches and as large as 13 inches by 23 inches. If you aren’t sure about the size that you need for your pet then there are ways that you can measure to obtain the right size, most manufacturers will have this listed and often will provide a reference to the door size based on breed standards as well.

Measuring Your Pet

Assuming you may already have a pet-door installed, you can go ahead and measure your pet to be sure you get the right sized automatic opening door. Here is what you need to do. Open the door and allow your pet to walk through. You should take notice of how much space is needed and measure the width. This is how wide the flap will need to be. The top of the flap will need to be placed a minimum of an inch above the height of the dog where the shoulders are. Any less than this and your pet may well balk at using the door because it is so awkward.

The step-over, which is the distance between the flap's bottom and the ground, should at no point exceed a third of the height of the shoulders of your pet. The lower the step-over is for your pet, the better. Consider how you feel when you have a large threshold to step across. This is the same for the shorter legs of your pet, and even for those taller dogs. If you are the owner of a dog that has a chest that is deep, pay attention, you may need to adjust your automatic dog door placement accordingly.

Best Dog Door

A home isn’t complete without a pet and in some cases a pet is all that a person may live with. A large percentage of the households in the U.S. own a pet; 68% to be exact. At more than 2/3 of the population, that figure speaks for itself: pets are an important part of the American way of life. As a pet owner, you are responsible for taking care of your furry friend’s needs. Along with food and water, making sure your pet has the freedom to move in and out of the home should be considered. Whether it makes it easier for you or the pet, the convenience of having a dog door may lower the pet’s anxiety of rushing outside when it is time to “go”. Additionally, during the long, cold winter, there can be no more opening the house door wide and letting in the icy cold air, because your pet can use its own smaller, quicker closing, dog door. This is just one example of why dog doors are a must for every home shared with a canine companion. The invention is a blessing for dog owners everywhere because it allows their pets to go outside and come back in as they please especially when no one is at home. read more

Cat Doors

Cat doors are a great option for people with cats that like to roam both indoors and outdoors. These cat doors give the cats freedom to come and go as they please, and they give pet owners freedom from having to go to the door each time the cat wants in or out. Because they are often seen as finicky, giving the cat the freedom may just cause them to love you a little more. Cats are able to come in to eat and drink as they please, and some doors even provide protection from other animals as they are controlled by a sensor on the cat’s collar. If you have a cat that likes to roam outside, and you live in a safe area for pets, you might want to consider purchasing a pet door to benefit both your cat and you. read more

Storm Door With Dog Door

Storm doors are great because they protect your expensive front door against damage from the elements such as rain, snow, ice and even the heat of the sun. It’s also cost-effective since it can help save money on energy costs. When considering adding a storm door to your home, you should keep in mind your pets before making any decision that allows changes to be made to your house. This is because adding or taking something away from your current home takes a lot of time for your pets to become comfortable with. So, if you’re considering investing in a storm door for your home, you should buy one that already has a dog door installed. This makes it easier for your pets to enter the house without having to keep the door open when they’re playing outside. Installing a storm door with a dog door built in can provide the combined benefits of both but remember to take some measurements of your pets before you do so. This makes access through the door much easier and allows you to keep the exterior door open to allow light to shine through. read more
