Many people with busy lifestyles benefit from the use of doggie and kitty doors; their pets have more independence and freedom by allowing them immediate access to the outside world. Pet doors
come in all shapes, sizes, and styles, and can be installed just about anywhere.
Types of Pet Doors
The most traditional type of pet door is a flap door
that allows pets to come and go as they please, whenever they please (though many traditional flap doors do
come with locks or panels that can be used when you want to restrict access).There are also electronic and electromagnetic
doors that require your pet to wear an electronic “key” or magnet on their collar that unlocks the door when your pet approaches and locks it as they walk away. These types of doors can be especially useful if you are worried about other animals entering your house, or if you want to allow only one pet in the house to come and go freely.Regardless of what type of pet door you choose
, there will always be pros and cons. We’ll take a look at some of those to help you determine if a pet door is a good choice for your home.RELATED STORY: Supplies For Keeping Outdoor Cats Safe And Healthy
