Who’ll Let the Dogs Out?

There is almost nothing more inviting than when you spot your favorite pet standing enthusiastically at the door when you get home from a long day. That’s probably why we spend so much time and money spoiling our pets with treats and toys. Owning a dog can be an immensely rewarding situation. It can also cause you plenty of headaches.

Your opinion of your dog tends to change considerably when it begins to whine at 4 a.m. and you have to get up out of bed to let it out. How many times have you stubbed your toe, knocked something over, or not been able to get back to sleep after letting the dog back in?

One solution that can keep you from having to stop what you’re doing (or having to climb out of bed) every time your dog needs to go out is to install a pet door. If that’s the route you are leaning towards, you need to consider your options. There are so many options on the market that finding the right fit for your needs could make your head spin.


Some pet doors are nothing but a rubber flap that covers a hole in your door. While this seems like all you may need, you will find that these doors often wear out over time and don’t have any type of seal. Without a seal, what’s stopping unwanted creatures from entering your house at all hours of the day? To keep unwanted creatures out of your house, a stronger pet door material; one that will last over years and years of abuse, is a good start. Getting a door that has a positive seal (or a stop) incorporated into it is advantageous for any homeowner who wants to keep wild animals in the wild.


Once you’ve ascertained what type of door you want, the question then becomes, “where do I install this thing?” Some people have cut holes in their walls or modified their heavy wooden doors to install a pet door. Do you have the expertise and the equipment to do such a major project? Even if you do, do you have the time? Wouldn’t it be easier to be able to get the convenience of strong and reliable pet door, without the hassle? Have you ever considered installing an aluminum screen door?


Aluminum screen doors that have heavy aluminum frames and piano hinges, like those manufactured by PCA Products, can support pet doors of multiple sizes. Besides the freedom your pets would get from having a door outside, your home will get all the benefits that a PCA Aluminum screen door can bring to your home. PCA Products aluminum screen doors are available with the The Magnador pet door.  The pet door features a two-way hinge, magnets that hold the door in place to keep unwanted debris (among other things) out, while the design itself works in concert with the rest of the door to keep out bugs.
