A dog door for sliding doors, cat doors and  pet screens are important home improvement features for dog and cat owners in Los Angeles.

Pets need to spend time outside. They do their business in the yard, watch cars in the street and entertain themselves by chasing critters about the property. For many pet owners, keeping up with the constant in and out of an active, energetic dog or cat can be a nuisance. In fact, owners who fail to meet their pet’s needs may find themselves with expensive screen repairs. Knowing how to keep your pet happy can help you save money on replacement screens.

They Put Pet Doors Everywhere These Days

Back in the early days of pet amenities, dog and cat doors were as basic as a simply a hole cut in a door with a rubber flap to prevent rain and, hopefully, other animals from coming in.

These days, they’ve customized dog and cat doors to meet the needs of the dog and cat and the dog’s owner. If your pet wants to get out of your house through your screen door or window, you can simply install a dog  or cat door in that window or screen door. In fact you can put a dog or cat door practically anywhere. Here are a list of some of what’s available:

  • cat and dog doors for sliding glass doors
  • cat and dog doors for walls
  • cat and dog doors for glass doors
  • cat and dog  doors for french doors
  • automatic cat and dog doors
  • electronic cat and dog doors
  • petsafe dog and cat doors

This kind of product is a good demonstration of the old saying, “if you can’t beat them, join them.” If your pet can’t resist the temptation to leave through a screen, then you can simply make it possible for your pet to leave through the screen without doing damage.

Security Cat and Dog Doors

You may find the idea of a cat or doggie door in LA to be somewhat unsettling. After all, if your dog can get in through the door, what’s to stop an intruder (be it either the four or two-footed variety) from coming in the same way?

Never fear! They now make cat and dog security doors that open only for your pet, and no one else. There are many systems for making this happen. Some screen doors use wireless technology so that you can let your pet in and out at the touch of a button. Other security systems require your pet to wear a special collar that sends a signal to the door. When your pet approaches the door, it opens.

Pet Proof Screens

If you’re not interested in allowing your pet to access the out of doors without your permission, then replacing your current or damaged screen with pet proof or resistant screening may be the answer.

Pet proof insect screening is tear and puncture-resistant to prevent damage by dogs and cats. Ideal for use in high-traffic areas, the screen installs like regular insect screening and is excellent for use in patio/porch enclosures and windows and doors. Take a look at this video:
