Doggie doors: rest and peace of mind

Updated on August 27, 2010

Invest into a doggie door and relax


Do you wake up every morning with dark circles and puffy eyes because your dog wakes you up every night for his 3 0' clock pee? Does your dog whine and whine behind your door to get in after he has insistently demanded to go out?

Fortunately there is good news, because from this day on your dog may have the pleasure to go in and out as much as he pleases, the solution to this problem is called a doggy door.

Investing in a doggie door is a great idea. No more opening and closing the door bringing cold drafts in the winter and bothersome flies and mosquitoes in the summer. No more scratching the door and whining incessantly. No more urine stains because you did not get your dog out on time and best of all, no more getting up at in the middle of the night.

There are various doggie doors on the market today. I personally have found that there are some doggie doors that may seem quite expensive but are certainly worth the extra piece of mind plus the luxury of having a good night's sleep.

I am particularly fond of Plexidor Electronic Pet doors. This company's doors are made in a way that only your pet will get through your door. This is great because in more than one occasion pet owners may find stray cats and even worse skunks or raccoons that come pay you a visit. This works thanks to an electronic door that reads a key code found on your dog's collar. The door works like a car garage door lifting as the dog approaches. The door is sensitive, so if something is obstructing the passage it will not close. So, no worry about your dog getting its tail crushed or a toddler inserting a hand through the door. The door is also energy efficient and will ensure no air infiltrates into your home.

If you are looking to spend a little bit less and do not want anything electronic then Plexidor pet doors has other options. Look for the non electronic version where the doors work just as the doors you find at a cafe', restaurant or at the E.R; they typically open both ways with just a simple push from your pet. Your cat or dog will easily learn how to use the door.

I personally, believe the electronic version of doggie doors are the best. They have many many advantages that will allow dog and owners the deserved piece of min

      The correct spelling is "peace."

      Your spelling of "piece" would be like a "piece of cake."
