Dog Door In Glass & Dog Gates
Indoor pet gates allow you to restrict your dog’s access to certain parts of your home. On the other hand, dog doors give your pet the freedom to roam without keeping your door ajar or having to open it yourself.
Benefits of Dog Gates
With dog gates, indoor pets can be confined to an area without having to be caged or crated. This is useful for situations like having guests over and wanting to vacuum certain parts of your home without getting disturbed by a playful puppy. A retractable pet gate might also be a good option.
How to Choose a Dog Gate
Of course, the most important thing to consider is your dog’s size and type. Make sure they can’t just jump over it and that it’s sturdy enough for their strength and weight. Also, consider how you’ll need to secure the gate as well as how easily you can open or dismantle it, if needed.
Benefits of Dog Doors
When you have a house-trained and independent dog, a secure dog door would be useful. They can come and go as they please, go potty whenever they need to, and they can entertain themselves outdoors. Having one will also reduce destructive behaviours like whining and scratching at the door just to be let out.
How to Choose a Dog Door
Again, the most important detail is the size of your dog. Once you have that covered, consider the material of the wall or door on which it will be installed. Whether it’s wood, metal, or glass, a magnetic dog door or any other feature that keeps the flap closed should help keep the elements out.
How to Install a Dog Door in a Glass Door
Many believe that it’s impossible or unsafe to have a pet door on glass panels. In truth, installing a dog door in glass is perfectly safe and simple as long as you purchase a product made specifically for that purpose. Also, it’s always best to engage the services of a licensed glazier to cut the holes according to the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
