Sometimes when a family goes on a vacation that will last a few days they don’t want to spend any money putting their pet in some kind of pet hotel or boarding place. However, they can consider getting an automatic pet door that would let their beloved animal come and go without the need of someone letting it in or out.
Where to Look for an Automatic Pet Door
Most people that get an automatic pet door get it for their dogs. Dogs need to go in and out of a house constatly due to their nature. It’s quite common to see a house with an automatic dog door installed in areas where there is not much crime.
Normally with an automatic pet door the animal has on a collar which signals to the door to open and let them in. The collar is preset and programmed by the manufacturer and are usually sold at a discount price along with the automatic door. A cat can also use the automatic pet door if the cat is considered an outside cat. This works perfectly on cats that spends most of the time outside the house but come back to eat anyway.
In addition to normal use, if a burglar gets past the dog and breaks into inside the house, the system will allow the dog to follow him into the house.
Installing a automatic dog door is very easy; all you need to do is mount it or get it mounted on a door that faces the outside. This can be a garage door, patio door, or just the back door of any home. Sometimes it is best to shop around for these things to make sure that you aren’t overpaying for something especially in these times of economic turmoil.
An automatic pet door is a very practical thing. It will save you from opening and closing the door for your pet hundreds of times. In addition, an automatic dog door lets your dog chase a thief both inside and outside your house.
