Now you can forget all those late night or early morning toilet runs in all weather, which is even worse when it’s raining — when all you want is a steaming hot cup of tea and some breakfast — especially when time is of the essence. The commute to the office has to start early or the traffic will be too heavy to make it on time, meaning extra time at the end of the working day to catch up, and maybe driving home in the dark.
Another chore you can forget (with a perfectly-measured glass pet door) is the mopping up of those little overnight accidents when you first get up and, worse, when the furry culprit decides to do a do-little or two on the new carpet, leaving stains that carpet cleaning can’t quite get out no matter how hard you try. Now, with a made-to-measure pet door, you can stay in bed just a few minutes longer and then paddle your way bleary-eyed to the kitchen without having to look out for puddles along the way.
Owners should be able to enjoy having a pet as part of a comfortable lifestyle … Imagine, no more interruptions while eating dinner or watching television or even enjoying some romantic time on the sofa. The pet door takes care of all those annoying pet toilet problems but only if the door fits properly. It should neither be too big or too small.
The secret is to measure the chest of the largest fully-grown pet and make sure that the door size you have selected is larger than your pet to ensure easy access in and out. Another important measurement is from the top of the shoulders to the bottom of the chest or the tummy, whichever is the lowest point of the animal, then add a further 5 centimeters to be on the safe side. A general estimate is 38 centimeters for a medium sized dog and 45 centimeters for a large dog.
