Does your dog love the outdoors? Are they always asking you to send them outside? If this is your dog, a medium dog door allows for unlimited access to the outdoors.
At eXtreme Dog Door, we carry the best medium size dog door for your outdoor-loving friend. This simple door can significantly improve your dog’s quality of life. Allowing them to decide when to go outside helps reduce anxiety, boredom, frustration and depression.
What to Look for in a Dog Door?
How do you know what to look for in a medium dog door? Here are some key things to consider when shopping for a dog door for your home:
eXtreme Dog Door uses only the best materials for our dog doors. The frames of our dog doors are made of sturdy aluminum. This means that the weather is not going to affect it. The sun’s UV rays won’t do anything to our dog door.
We also built the dog door flap from polyolefin-based polymer, making our dog door flap non-toxic and recyclable. Our flap also remains flexible when temperatures drop as well. Therefore, your dog door flap will not crack in the middle of winter. It also has a magnetic base that allows for a perfect seal from the weather. Our Dual Flap Aluminum Dog Door even insulates your home from the outdoor temperatures.
Training My Dog to Use a Dog Door
Using a dog door might not come naturally to many dogs. Once they get the hang of it, they will experience an increased quality of life that a dog door will provide. It will be your job to teach your dog to use the door. Don’t worry, though; it’s not a difficult task.
Many dogs think a dog door is like a window, so they might not “get it” at first. Bring your dog over to the dog door and show them that it opens. Lift the flap and let them try looking through. If they do not want to look, try coaxing them with a treat. Place a treat on the other side of the flap and open it so your dog can see it. Try this twice a day, and eventually, your dog will understand what it does.
It would help if you never tried to push your dog through the dog door. Because your dog doesn’t yet understand what the door does, it will cause them a lot of anxiety.
When getting a dog door, an important feature is the ease of installation. Our eXtreme Dog Doors are simple enough to install that anyone can do it themselves. You’ll only need the tools listed below:
