Pet Door Strap – For a More Customized Use
When your pet is getting old and is just not as independent as it once was, you will need a pet door strap to take him out of his house without any problems. Many pets have accidents in the house. They either chew on something or dig in the dirt and soil. This can be very dangerous for your pet, so it is good to make sure there is a way to take them outside without problems. Here is how you can do that.
The first thing you will need to do is find the correct pet door opening. Dog doors should always have a gate and cat gates should always have a litter box. If you don’t have a gate and your dog or cat has an accident, they will usually get back into the house through the gate. Dog doors can be bought at pet stores or you can make one yourself. To put it together, you will need a piece of pipe and some screws or strong magnets.
Next you will need a pet door strap and a wide enough opening. Your dogs or cats probably won’t care about the width, so we will skip that. Once you have these two parts, you can start putting your dogs or cats inside the house. You will need a long piece of chain or another strong magnet to attach the strap to. You will want to be able to leave a gap between the interior door and the dog or cat’s leg. This will give them enough room to get out without getting stuck.
Now attach the pet door strap to the inside door and to a sturdy magnet. The strap will hold the pet door open while your cat or dog walks in front of it. Then you will want to place the wide enough magnet next to the interior door. This will hold the pet door strap in place as your pet walks through it. So if there was an accident and your dog or cat slips out, the magnet will catch them and hold them tight.
There are some other safety tips that I don’t want to go into, but it is important that you follow them. Make sure the interior door is not too wide for your dogs or cats to walk through. Make sure you check to make sure the area where your pets will be walking is large enough. If you can’t find any of these things at your local hardware store, then you can always shop online and you will find what you are looking for. One of the best places to shop for these is Amazon.
Pet door opening straps are a great and affordable way to make your home safer. You can buy them in varying lengths and then you can even customize them to match your specific door opening. You can also find custom made ones online, but they will usually cost more than the ones that you can buy in stores. As long as you follow the instructions, you will have no problems.
