Pet Friendly Lodging and Accommodation

Dogs should not be left home alone when their owners go away for a short trip that may last several days. There are special facilities that are dedicated towards providing accommodations for dogs of all sizes, ages, characters and breeds. Pet hotels essentially provide a five start treatment with an array of amenities and esential services. For instance, dogs that stay in pet inns are fed multiple times a day with the highest quality dry and wet food. Additionally, treats are given throughout the day. Of course, a bowl of fresh filtered water is always available for dogs to drink in a pet inn.

Lodging for dogs also includes some play time and outside walks. An experienced and friendly staff is in charge of taking out each dog for multiple walks per day.

Securing Your Doggie Door

Plenty of homeowners have pets and I am one of them. A lot of these owners have a patio dog door or doggie door installed at home so that their furry pets can easily go out and come back in if they want to do their business in the lawn or simply to run around.

Doggie doors are staple in most homes with big yards to accommodated dogs. However, having a door can become a problem if you do not secure it properly to avoid intruders accessing your home through your doggie door.

Put a lock on your doggie door so that if you have to go on vacation or during the night, you can always be sure that your home is well secured.

Install a motion detector alarm in your premise that will send off signal when an intruder tries to access the doggie door who is more than 40 lbs. There are motion detectors that can be set to categorize pets and humans so it will set off differently.

Reinforce your pet door’s frame with metals that cannot be easily sawed. If your current doggie door is framed in wood and can easily be removed and sawed then time to change it.

Avoid plastic-flap doggie doors. These doors are hard to secure.

Consider the placement of your doggie door. Do not install it near the door lock.

Consider the size of the pet door when you are installing one. Make sure the doggie door is just enough for the size of your dog. Bigger than your pet’s size will just invite trouble.

Use a doggie door with a sensor that will open or close when your pet is accessing it through the beams passed from its collar.

 

These are just some tips to help you secure your doggie door. There are many other options to consider but take extra measures to ensure that your doggie door is well secured and guarded.
