Most pet owners agree that their dog or cat is part of the family. That means they would do anything to keep them healthy and happy. While there is always the option of leaving your dog in an outdoor dog house when you won’t be home, this is not always the most comfortable choice for your furry friend. It limits the amount of space your dog must move around and doesn’t always protect him or her from the elements. Additionally, you are likely to hear from the neighbors if your dog gets lonely and barks uncontrollably in your absence.
With a dog door, you don’t have to be tied to your pet’s schedule. He or she can get outside whenever it is necessary without you needing to be home. Here are just five ways that choosing a dog door instead of a dog house can make your life easier and your dog’s life more comfortable.
Better Protection from the Weather
Imagine how you might feel if you had to stay outside all the time even when you longed to spend time with your family. Now think about how uncomfortable it would be to remain outside in any kind of weather. Unfortunately, some dogs do live this way and it can lead to a host of physical and emotional health problems. When you install a dog door, your pet can come back inside as soon as it gets uncomfortable outdoors and you don’t have to worry about the possibility of an accident indoors.
Saves Space and Energy
If space is limited in your backyard, the last thing you want to worry about is where to place a doghouse. A dog door requires no extra room and it attaches easily to part of your home that already exists. You also conserve energy by not opening the door an average of five times a day for your dog to go outside and do his or her business. Pet doors have been specifically designed for thermal efficiency and minimal heat loss.
Dog Doors are Cheaper than Dog Houses
Because a dog house is larger and costs more money to construct, you can expect to pay significantly more for it. At Pet Door Products, we are happy to provide you with a free quote for comparison purposes.
Dogs Doors are Secure
Perhaps you hesitate to install a dog door because you feel concerned that another animal could go in or out of the door. This is extremely unlikely because the door has weight to it, and you must train your dog to push on it when he or she wants to go outside or come back inside. Smaller animals won’t have the strength to push the door open, and larger animals won’t try to push on something solid.
Dog Doors are Easy to Install
When you purchase a dog door from Pet Door Products, it takes our professional installers under 30 minutes to have it in place. This requires no demolition. We can even install a pet door in an apartment or other type of rental property.
