What You Need To Know About
Pet Doors And Home Security
Our pets are important to us. We love them, care for them, and make them a part of our family. They provide us with unconditional love, entertainment, and even support and stability. For many pet owners, the animals in their homes are equivalent to children. While some people may disagree with the notion that pets “are people too,” that does not negate the fact that many pet owners treat their animals with the same love and care as they would their children.
Just as we want to care for and protect our family members, pet owners also want to ensure the health and happiness of their furry friends. Installing a pet door is one of the best ways to allow your beloved pet to experience this, even when you are not home.
Benefits of Installing a Pet Door
Installing a pet door allows our pets to experience the same joy and freedom that we do. Animals need movement and fresh air to be happy and live long healthy lives. When we are busy or not at home, our pets need to be stimulated and able to exercise all on their own. Smelling plants, lying in the sun, and chasing squirrels are just a few of the benefits our animals receive when they can easily get outside.
Installing a pet door allows our pets to experience the benefits of being outdoors.
Freedom For Your Pet
Domesticated animals rely on us for almost everything and depend on us to get in and out of their homes.
When animals are left alone, they can get anxious and bored. Under-stimulation or anxiety in animals can lead to bad behavior and even destruction of property. Dogs, in particular, need the freedom to roam. The ability to go outside on their own allows them to use the bathroom when necessary and enjoy stimulation from being outdoors.
Busy homeowners who need to be away for an extended period of time can feel peace knowing their pets are not stuck indoors. The convenience of a pet door means no longer having to worry about rushing home to let them out.
Your Pet’s Mental and Physical Health
Animals are not that different from people. They thrive when they can be productive and active. Pet doors promote activity that can make your pet healthier and more agile. Dogs, in particular, can become depressed when they are unable to move freely or feel like they are not fulfilling some kind of duty. A fenced-in yard provides a safe, handy place in which your dog can play and relax when you are not at home.
When cats have the freedom to roam, they are generally happier and healthier as well. Cats need exercise and a lot of mental stimulation. They can easily get bored and develop behavioral problems. Since cats are natural hunters, they get the most out of being able to chase things.
Pet Door Concerns
Before you install a pet door, you need to ask yourself a few questions. Is your yard fenced-in and safe so that your animals can be outside unattended? Is there anything outdoors that could be poisonous to your pet and that they can get into without your watchful eye? And lastly, are you concerned about the security of your home when you are not there?
Unfortunately for homeowners, a pet door is also convenient for intruders. To potential burglars, it provides an opportunity to access the house when no one is home.
You will want to take precautions when you decide on what type of pet door to install.
Precautions To Take When Installing A Pet Door
So how can you prevent your pet door from becoming a home security liability? Installing your pet door in a discrete location and making sure it is appropriately sized for your pet and not any bigger is just a couple of the precautions you can take. Today, many pet doors are designed to address home security with built-in features. These new products offer you the traditional elements you want in your pet door, but with added security.
