Common Misconceptions About Pet Doors and Pet Door Inserts

Every pet owner knows the joys of sharing their life with a furry friend. But when it comes to the subject of pet doors, there’s a bundle of misconceptions that have many pet owners scratching their heads (or ears!). We’re here to debunk some of the most common myths and give you the “tail-tale” facts, straight from the experts at Patio Link!

Myth #1: All Pet Doors Are the Same

Pet Door Inserts: A Far Cry from The Traditional Flap

Oh, how pet doors have evolved! Gone are the days when one-size-fits-all. With the advancements in doors and windows technology, modern pet doors have followed suit. They’re not just flaps on doors anymore; they’re engineered designs that take into account various factors: the pet’s size, the home’s security needs, and aesthetic appeal. Patio Link offers a wide range of innovative designs, especially tailored for sliding glass doors.

Cost Effective Doesn’t Mean Quality Compromise

There’s a common misconception that if a dog door or a doggie door is cost-effective, it might be of inferior quality. However, it’s important to note that just because something is easy on the pocket doesn’t mean it compromises on quality. The key is to look for reputable brands, like Patio Link, that balance quality with affordability. With Patio Link, you can have both value for your money and a high-quality pet door.

Myth #2: My Pet Will Not Use the Pet Door

Training and Trust: Let Your Pet Feel Free!

Most pets, once they get the hang of it, absolutely love the freedom a pet door offers. With a bit of training, patience, and positive reinforcement, your pet will feel confident to roam in and out. And if you’re concerned about transitioning your pet to a new system, the professionals at Patio Link are here to offer guidance and support to make the process smooth. Their expertise and experience ensure that your pet will adapt to the pet door with ease.

Myth #3: Pet Doors Can Injure My Pet

Safety First: No Nips or Knocks Here!

When properly chosen and installed, pet doors are incredibly safe for your furry friends. Look for designs with features like soft flaps, rounded edges, and safety tempered glass. Always opt for professional installation to ensure it’s set up correctly. Patio Link prioritizes your pet’s safety, ensuring that each door is tested for a smooth, injury-free experience. With Patio Link, you can have peace of mind knowing that your pet is protected while enjoying the convenience of a pet door.

Myth #4: Pet Doors Are a Security Risk

Lock Mechanisms: Fortifying Your Furry Friend’s Freedom

There’s a prevalent concern among pet owners that installing a pet door might compromise home security. However, modern pet doors, especially those from Patio Link, come with advanced lock mechanisms. Whether you’re looking at sliding glass doors or screen doors, robust security options are available. And with additional features like a security screen and a glass sliding door, you can rest assured of enhanced safety and peace of mind. Patio Link ensures that you can enjoy the convenience of a pet door while maintaining the security of your home.

Feel Secure, Not Stuck!

The days of viewing pet doors as a potential security breach are behind us.

You can now enjoy the convenience of a pet door while maintaining the safety of your home and loved ones. Patio Link’s commitment to security and innovation ensures that both you and your pet can feel secure and free at the same time.

Myth #5: Pet Doors Will Let in Bugs and Other Animals

Only Paws, No Pests!

Pet doors of the past may have been an open invitation for creepy crawlies or the occasional curious critter. But rest assured, modern doors come with features like magnetic closures that ensure only your pet gets in and out. Furthermore, brands like Patio Link have incorporated 100% eco-friendly weather seals like mohair, ensuring that while your pet feels the freedom, bugs do not! With Patio Link’s pet doors, you can keep your home bug-free while allowing your pet to come and go as they please.
