Pet owners do a lot for their furry loved ones. For people with a big, fenced in yard, walking your dogs on a leash isn’t always a necessity when Fido can just run through the backyard. So why not make it even easier on you and your pet with a built-in pet door? Both dogs and cats can learn to use the door themselves, making life easier especially, when weather concerns make long walks difficult for both of you. The South Florida heat can get a little oppressive at times, and our daily rainstorms are, of course, legendary!
Let’s take a look at some great examples of pet doors and how creative they can be!
This unobtrusive pet door makes perfect use of a small space. For both cats and small or toy breed dogs, this is a great way to get them their outside time without interruption when you don’t have time. It’s separate from the “people” entrance and is barely noticeable, but still perfectly functional for four-footed family members.
Plain pet doors are functional but who says you can’t get a little decorative too? This gabled door is great for pets and adds a little style as well. The “roof” and “siding” give the door great character, and it’s a terrific use of a small space.
Indoor cats can get use out of pet doors too. This door is cleverly cut into the side of a cabinet, so Kitty gets her own bathroom privacy and you – and your guests – don’t have to see the messy litterbox. It’s convenient for everyone!
A doggie door that doesn’t lead to the great outdoors? Why not? This terrific example uses space inside the home to make an inside dog house/dog crate. Your gets its own safe space – a little room of their own – without new furniture or bulky metal crates taking up space. A “screen door” gives ventilation and lets your pet see what’s happening even when it’s time to kennel up.
