    They should really install a pet door.

    they make pet doors that are magnetically locked and only when the pet, wearing a collar with the magnet key in it, goes to the door it unlocks and allows the pet access. This blocks stray cats and wild animals from using the door to get into your house.

    Pet doors can be small enough to keep out humans but they are an easy entrance for burglars of the four footed kind. I get possums and raccoons are the time – one period where three young raccoons at a time would partake of the kibble dish. And then go play on the roof. Loudly!

    Even if a two-foot burglar got in, I’d think the dog would make plenty of noise. Burglars HATE noisy dogs more than mean ones.

    If an openign is big enough to get an arm in, a smart thief can get in the house. I saw a TV special on thieves that included a man who made a doorknob-turner out of a broom handle, a coat hanger, and a couple pieces of bike tire. He would put the device in through the doggie door, move it so it was against the doorknob, and push. VOILA! – An open door. He also said the about half the time he didn’t need it because the door would be unlocked anyway.

    We had a small 4 year old crawl thru the doggie door & unlock the front door for its parents!
    Isn’t that ingenius?

    Doesn’t work…when the human thief or other animals sniff around the doggy door, the pet will come to the doggy door to investigate….and unintentionally opens the door. The best bet is the one that is one-way. It will allow the dog to go OUT but not back in…the dog will have to bark to get back in.

    And when I was a young adult in my 20s, I could get through a medium sized doggy door whenever I got locked out or forgot house key. A child can easily get through a small dog door…and many thieves use a child to gain access.

    We taught our pup to ring a bell (hangs from the doorknob) when he needs to go out. Much more dignified than whining, yipping or scratching.

    Our two dogs way to big for doggie door. We have a high wooden fence. We do not have a doggie door and our door knob is round. Daughter makes sure they have potty break.

    Raccoons don’t need no stinkin’ doors! One tore a hole in a neighbor’s roof two feet across-right through the shingles,et.al.!
