Those of you who own a house with a yard will already know just how useful a dog door can be. Such a door won’t just save you the trouble of taking the dog outside every time he needs to go out for whatever reason but it will also give your dog the freedom it deserves to roam around the yard at will.
This being said, you are much better off buying a dog door rather than building one yourself, not just because of how difficult it can be but also in terms of how expensive it can get if you make any mistakes. In this respect, let us find out what are the ten best dog doors the market has to offer at this point in time.
10Dog Mate Small Dog Door White
This small dog door is aimed at large cats and small dogs up to 14-inches tall, but you could probably fit a taller dog through it if the dog is slim enough. At the same time, this small dog door enjoys a 4-way locking system which guarantees perfect security at all times. Not only that but the door also has a 2-inch self-lining, a fully?draft and waterproof brush sealed flap for good measure.
This high-end smart door features programmable selective entry, exit, and auto-locking functions to provide perfect security at all times. Among its other features, we find a durable plastic frame with LED indicators, a sensitivity control function, installation instructions, and a cutting template. It also works with a battery operated SmartKey that you can fit on your dog’s collar so as to signal to the door whenever he’s close by.
8High Tech Pet Power Pet Electronic Pet Door
This motor driven, vertically sliding door is activated by an MS-4 ultrasonic collar designed to signal the door whenever the dog is about to enter so as to unlock itself. Furthermore, this high-tech door features a directional sensing system that opens the door only when the dog (or cat) is on a direct approach. Also, the door is equipped with a 4way access control to give you full control over the door at all times.
