Are Golden Retriever Doors Safe?
The safety of a golden retriever door depends greatly on the type of golden retriever door, the surrounding area and the actions of the golden retriever owner.
Traditionally, most people think of golden retriever doors as being nothing more than a small opening in the door with a plastic or canvas curtain that the golden retriever pushes out of its way to go in or out. There are a couple of problems with that style of golden retriever door.
One problem is that it is not just a golden retriever door. It’s accessible to everything in the neighborhood. If your family has a large golden retriever door and small children then the children could go out the golden retriever door. Not only that, but there are reported cases of all sorts of wildlife, such as raccoons, coming in this type of golden retriever door. A similar issue is that wildlife or other neighborhood animals may not be the same size as the door, so they could get stuck trying to come in.
Another problem is that that type of golden retriever door is not usually energy efficient. Since it’s nothing more than a curtain over a hole in the door, it tends to let air in. This can create temperature issues and increased heating or cooling bills.
The newer style of golden retriever door is electronic. It is activated by a signal from your golden retriever’s collar. This lowers the risk of children or other animals using your golden retriever door. It is also usually much more energy efficient, but it isn’t without its own problems.
Since it is controlled by an electrical impulse from your golden retriever’s collar, if the collar falls off or the batteries run out, your golden retriever could get locked out of your house. Therefore, it’s important to change the batteries often and be sure the collar fits on your golden retriever properly.
In general, electronic golden retriever doors are fairly safe, as long as you have a door installed that is the appropriate size for your golden retriever, keep the collar on the golden retriever and change the batteries often. However, there’s no real substitute for human supervision.
