Freedoms and Restrictions: Indoor Dog Gates
Let Your Dog Roam Free, But Only When You Want with an Indoor Dog Gate with A Door
Indoor Dog Gates with A Door May Be the Solution to Your Roaming Friend
Man’s best friend has become a household staple in most suburbs and even cities. They are specifically bred for different activities, shows, and to be special. But your dog is special in its own way, whether it be the way they dig your yard up, chew on your slippers or nuzzle up to you during a thunderstorm. The last thing you want to happen is for your best friend to get into some mischief where they shouldn’t be. A dog gate with a door may be the thing you didn’t know you needed. These are customizable gates that fit right into your various doorways and keep your dog safe. They are made of quality materials that are not harmful to anyone or anything inside of your household. You may be asking, “why would I need this item?” and I have one simple answer for you, so that your dog doesn’t eat anything that may be harmful to their health.
According to Dogtime.com there are over 100,000 cases of dogs being accidentally poisoned a year. Dogs are a curious animal and they will eat whatever they want including: food left on the floor, dropped medicine, small clothing and a whole lot of other things. These dogs don’t know anything about what they’re eating and as owners we have to make sure that they can stay safe so indoor dog gates will help with that. If you have a small dog a simple 3 feet high dog gate will suffice, they won’t be able to hop over it and break into the places they shouldn’t be. If your dog is a bit bigger you will need a higher gate to prevent them from getting out. The bigger dogs also tend to be a bit more creative with how they find ways out, they may even find out a way to open the gate if they are smart enough. But, smaller dogs like terriers and Chihuahuas will probably just hang out until you return. These gates are securely placed in the door way and should not be able to be knocked over by the dogs. There are even some gates that are made up of steel and originally constructed to keep children away from stairs. This is good but they are a bit bulky and there aren’t any small pet doors on them. The addition of the door is very nice because you don’t have to remove the gate every time you want to let your dog into other rooms of your house. This style gate is one size fits most for the doorways so you will need to do some measuring before you decide to purchase the gate. However, there are some gates that are expandable on the sides and able to fit in a variety of doorways. If you have a few doorways in your house that are wider or narrower than standard doors this may be the way to go. They do run a little bit more in price but are well worth the investment.
I personally have the expandable gate and that has helped keep my dogs in the rooms I want them in and out of the ones I don’t. The one I have is made of wood and fits the décor in my house a little better than a plastic or metal one. Luckily, I was able to find some customizable gates so that I could have it blend in with the house and not stand out like a sore thumb. This did run my price up a bit, but style was worth it. I have a German Shepard and a golden retriever so I needed a heavier gate, and a bit sturdier, but if you have smaller dogs then you can save a little cash and get something lightweight and secure.
An indoor dog gate is an excellent investment if you have kids, tend to be messy or just want to ensure the safety of your dog. They are relatively inexpensive and will fit in to your house as if it was meant to be there. It will be a bit of a shock to your dog at first, but don’t worry they will get used to it and appreciate you looking out for them at the end of the day.
