4 Tips when Buying a Pet Door for a Senior Pet

5 Tips when Buying a Pet Door for a Senior Pet (1)

One accessory that all people with pets need to have is a pet door. A quality pet door will give animal access to the outside or certain areas of the home, which can provide you and your pet with a lot of conveniences. While there are standard pet doors that are good for most pets, those that have an older animal at home will need to take additional factors into consideration. There are five tips to follow when you are looking to buy a pet door for your elderly pet.

Magnetic Strength

Some innovative pet doors today use a system of magnetic flaps that need to be pushed through. While stronger ones can provide more support, they can pose a challenge for an older pet. Because of this, you should choose one that is not too strong or challenging to push through.

Flooring

While the pet door is important, you also need to make sure that the flooring by it is acceptable. The last thing that you would want would be for your pet to slip when going through the door. Having a slip-resistant mat installed could correct this concern.

Low Installation

When you are shopping for a pet door, you will find that there are a variety of different installation options. This can include some that are quite a bit off of the floor. At Pet Door Products, there are a variety of pet doors that can be situated much lower. This is ideal for a pet that doesn’t have the ability to walk or jump high through a door.

Larger Size

When you are looking for a pet door for your older pet, you also want to make sure that it is big enough. While smaller dogs and cats are used to squeezing through tighter spaces, this is not as easy for a larger pet. Because of this, you will want to have one that is comfortable for pets to walk through without having to push themselves too hard.

If you are looking for a pet door for your aging pet, you should contact Pet Door Products today. The company has a variety of innovative products that could be perfect for your home and pet. They will be able to help you choose and install the right pet door for your situation.

DOs and DON’Ts of Buying a Pet Door

DOs and DON'Ts of Buying a Pet Door (1)

A pet door can make your life a lot more convenient. No more 100 trips off the couch to let your dog out. No more dealing with indecisive cats who want in, then out, then in again. However, you’ll want to make sure that you choose the right product. There are a lot of these doors on the market, and they won’t all work well for you and your home. Here are the Do’s and Don’ts for choosing a door from Pet Door Products:

Do Plan Ahead

Before buying, you’ll want to figure out where the pet door is best placed and measure the space. This will help you choose the right system. Also, consider where your pet prefers to enter and exit the house. If they’ve never used a pet door before, it will be easier to train them if you work with their usual routine.

Don’t Buy The Cheapest Product

A cheap pet door can actually cost you more in the long run. These primitive set-ups let drafts in, raising your electric bill. They may leak during storms, causing water damage. Some don’t lock, which could let mischievous neighborhood raccoons come in and wreak havoc throughout your home. Finally, these cheap products may only last you a few months and then you’ll be on the hook for another one.

Do Invest in High Tech Products

The new wave of pet doors has come a long way from an unsightly rubber flap. Higher tech doors seal weather and temperatures out. They look quite attractive, with various types of glass to coordinate with your existing door or window. These pet doors may also have sophisticated locking mechanisms, letting you secure your home at night.

Don’t Hesitate to Ask Questions

Are you unsure which door is right for you? Did you try to install a kit yourself but ran into a snag? Is your pet slow to figure out their new door system? Reach out to us at Pet Door Products and our friendly customer service department will be happy to troubleshoot with you.

10 Facts About Doggie Doors You Probably Don’t Know.

10 facts about doggie doors you probably don't know. (1)

Are you tired of constantly letting your pet in or out of the house? A doggie door may be the solution! These devices operate with a flap, letting your pet push their way in or out. The flap seals behind them. These are a great time saver and convenience that can be installed in different places around the house. Read on to find out more:

Ten Facts About Pet Doors:

  1. These doors aren’t just for dogs. At Pet Door Products, we stock a broad range of sizes and styles that can work for everything from small cats to large dogs.
  2. Our Made in the USA products come with a 15-year warranty. You can learn details here.
  3. Doggie doors offer flexible installation. You can install them in any standard glass door or window around the home.
  4. Worried about home security? Want to keep your animal inside for a time? Our doggie doors come with a removable security panel that locks shut.
  5. Many pets learn how to use the door quickly. You can demonstrate how it works and, if they need encouragement, put their favorite treat on the other side.
  6. Doggie doors won’t significantly change your house’s energy efficiency. Our products use Endura Flaps and weatherproofing to keep your house sealed.
  7. If you hire an installer, the doggie door can be put in place in as little as half an hour. For DIY-ers, it may take a little longer.

One simple fix is to keep your pet’s food and water away from the door so they won’t be tempted.
