No one wants to be a gate keeper for their car or dog, that's why a pet door was made. A pet door is a fixed up frame, set into a wall, window, or a door with a hinged flap to enable your pets to move out or in, on their own, without bothering you and you are free from those messy litter boxes, ruined carpets, and of course the night-time trips to let your pet out.
Many kinds are available for different pets with simple or more advanced features. The cost depends on the features but one can always have an access to this magic even with a few bucks. The lowest range just lies under twenty dollars while the more fancy or high- tech gadget could run several hundreds in cost.
The simplest pet door is a weighted flap, but now days they also come with magnets so as to have a good hold and to prevent opening by a strong wind. One-side access options are also available that allow only single side movement for the pets. The other variety comes in way of Electromagnetic ones, which can detect the matching magnet on the collar of pet so as to ensure only authorized entry. Infra red rays based or transparent flaps are just few other varieties from large kinds available. The pet door concept though is not a new one but the advancements in this product do pace with present time. With more popularity this selection also emerges with new features making its functioning better and easier then before.
A few things should be considered when deciding which pet door is best for you, issues like frames, material used, color to match your main one or window where it is to be installed, security levels desired, budget and the seals available as poor quality in this regard can hamper processes like climate control. The reflection should be not only your love for the pet but also your fashion.
The one you get should be in accordance with the size of your pet so to allow him easy entry. For this, measure the pet's body at its widest as well as the proper height and then add few inches to both measurements to have perfect fit.
Installation of a pet door is not the hard one, all of them should come with full installation instructions and it is important to follow the steps exactly. But if something that you do find difficult then you could always get someone to install it for you. This should not take long and should not be too expensive.
Last but not the least, having a pet door is not all. You have to train your pet to use it to keep you away from the boring work of a gate keeper. When your pet finally does go through it, don't forget to reward them and make it fun, this way your pet will be happy to use it and you can both enjoy the benefits. A smart pet never bother its master.
