You might assume there’s not much more to know about dog doors beyond their usefulness to allow your pet to go in and out without the need for you to get up from the couch. In addition to their role in preserving your well-earned couch time for you, there are other things about your pet door that you might benefit from learning…
12 Facts You May Not Know About Dog Doors
- An energy-efficient dog door, such as Pet Door Products sliding door with dog door, made with low-E glass will help reduce your electricity bills!
- For homes in severe climate regions with extreme winds and cold, an optional double flap for your pet door creates an extra-insulative air space to help prevent air leaks.
- If your dog is hesitant to use the new pet door, you can practice holding the door open with one hand and throwing a snack or favorite toy through the opening. Or, a familiar human who fits the door can get down on all fours and show the dog how to go through.
- You can install a sliding glass door with dog door, for a sleek, state-of-the-art little entryway that becomes an attractive and durable component of your home’s structure.
- A natural concern about dog doors is that a criminal could use the entrance to access the home. There are pet doors available with security features, including a sliding automatic or manual locking door cover.
- The removable dog door panel insert from Pet Door Products does not require structural alteration of your existing patio door, making it ideal for rentals. The high-performance insert panel and Endura® flap combine for exceptional energy efficiency, so you can have a top-quality pet door in your rental.
- Your pet door must be wide enough for your dog to pass through it comfortably, but you do not need a pet door as tall as your dog. Typically, pets duck their heads when going through such an opening.
- The Pet Door Products Endura Flap blocks cold to as low as –40F and withstands winds up to 50 mph, preventing drafts for reduced energy costs and improved home comfort.
