Automatic Dog Doors - So Only Your Dog Goes In & Out
For all those lucky dogs that have backyards, balconies and terraces, there's a tech innovation for dog doors. Normal dog doors let your pet in and out of the house, but also give access to other pets to come in and out of your home. This clearly opens some security issues. Now you can get an electronic dog door, which only opens for your dog and automatically locks once he passes through the dog door.
How Does It Work?
The PetSafe dog door "SmartKey" attaches on your dog's collar and has a range that is adjustable up to 3 feet. The SmartDoor reads a unique signal from the SmartKey on your dog's collar and triggers the flap to unlock. After your dog passes through, the dog door will relock again automatically. When the SmartDoor no longer senses your dog's SmartKey, the flap automatically locks back into place. Animals without the SmartKey are not able to enter. You may have a total of 5 SmartKeys in use at one time. In addition to the automatic mode, you can also manually set the dog door to “locked” or “unlocked.”
The pet door itself has a Plexiglas flap, and is tapered to create a tighter, energy efficient seal. The two layer polycarbonate door is weather resistant and prevents discoloration from the elements. It's also offered in two sizes: small and large.

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
