The concern for security of pet doors often acts as a deterrent in deciding in its favour. The security of homes should never be compromised but what kind of security threat can happen if pet doors are installed? And is the security really being compromised when you install pet doors?
Firstly, the size of pet doors is such that it is never possible for any human to pass through it. Even the biggest size of pet doors would not make it possible for even a diminutive human to pass through it except for very small children. Secondly, the threat of intruders can come from stray animals and dogs that might try to force its way through pet doors. In this case, the threat is ably encountered by the locking system of pet doors that can prevent such intrusion. Therefore, the security threats about pet doors are mostly unfounded.
Temporary or permanent pet door
After you have crossed the first hurdle, the next that comes in line is whether you should install a permanent or temporary pet door? Pet doors are all alike and it does not matter whether it is permanent or temporary, at least from the functional point. All pet doors work in the same way and the term permanent or temporary relates to its procedure of installation. Temporary pet doors are easy to install, can be installed on your own if you wish and are also easy to remove. For installing temporary pet doors there is no need to make changes in the constructional features of the door or wall where it is installed. This is therefore ideally suited for people who keep changing residences frequently like the ones who live in rented houses. Temporary pet doors are manufactured with the purpose of keeping pets happy as also the landlords and tenants.
Discipline your pets
Pet doors allow pet owners to train and discipline their pets by encouraging them to make right use of the facility that provides complete freedom of movement for pets. Since pet owners do not have to tend to pets to act as a doorman to facilitate its egress, they are also free to lead their own lives without having to other about attending to pets. By allowing your dog to roam outside the home freely, the security of your property gets enhanced. The liberty of movement provides ample opportunity to pets for protecting itself from dangers like fire and other emergency situations.

Pets are usually unaware about the use of pet doors and owners have to take the lead to familiarise pets with its use. Some pets might try to get a feel of it while some others might shy away. But they have to be trained to use it properly. It might require some coaxing to attract pets to the doors which they would get used to very soon.
You now know which type of pet door would fit the bill, depending on whether you are a home owner or tenant.
