Dog Doors: Giving Your Pet Freedom to Come and Go as They Please Helps Solve Behavior Problems

Dog Doors

When we think of dog doors, we think of flaps that allow dogs to trot on through. What a great convenience this can be for you and your pet. Allowing your pet this extra freedom can be exciting and it saves you the time of getting up and opening the door six times a day! But, we live in a modern world with great inventions. One such invention involves our dog door! Pet owners can now choose a dog door that is electronic!

Back in the day, a dog door was a simple flap. Often flimsy and thin, so the animal could pass through, it made keeping a home warm in the winter a tad harder. Or, it helped the air conditioning seep right out into the backyard. Kind of reminds you of that saying your mother used to use. "Were you born in a bam? Close the door!" But, through the passage of time and inventions, we have found that our dog door can be electronic. The process is simple.

For a dog door to work, all it needs is an electronic frequency that tells the door to open. Somewhat like the automatic doors at the local mall, electronic dog doors open for the animal. But, there's a difference. To help limit which animals can come into your home, an electric dog door requires a communication between the dog door and the dog, more precisely the dog's collar. When the animal gets close enough, it will open.

Adding a dog door to your home can seem like a difficult task. It doesn't have to be. It also doesn't have to be costly to your heating bills. By choosing an electric dog door you can allow your dog the freedom to enter and exit as it wishes and give yourself a sense of security as well. Deciding to purchase a dog door for your animal is ultimately the decision of the pet owner and homeowner, but what pooch wouldn't be happy with a dog door to call his own?
