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.

Cute Halloween Costumes For Your Dogs

It’s that time again where pet owners dress up their little fur balls with cute outfits for Halloween. It will be super nice to dress up your pets too if you have one especially if you want to tag them along for trick or treating.

Here are some ideas for fun, cute and very funky costumes to try for your dogs. Make sure you have the camera handy as these costumes are oozing with cuteness and just warrant photo shoots.

 

Do Not Leave Your Pets Inside The Vehicle

I will repeat myself, over and over again until irresponsible pet owners realise that their beloved four-legged pals must not be left alone inside the car, especially this summer. The temperature can go high during mid-day and a closed vehicle is like an oven. Your pets will get fried! Don’t do that!

I attached this picture I have seen from metapicture.com. It is a considerate way to care for your pet while you have to run errands. Although, the picture is cute;I am still not comfortable with the idea of leaving your precious pet unattended and exposed to the harsh elements. Then again, this is only okay if you have a pick-up truck. What if you don’t?

So, if you have to run an errand and there is no one to watch over your pet, maybe you can leave him/her to a pet sitter or ask a neighbor to watch until you get back. I think, that is the best thing to do under the circumstances.

Dogs are my favorite pets. They just light up a room when they come. They are cute and cuddly and full of innocence. And they have a love that’s pure. Who wouldn’t love a dog?
