Does anybody really have this? It seems like they were in every older cartoon, even through the 90s but I've never seen one in my life. Were they really popular at some point in time?
We had one for our cat a long time ago... Most of them aren't very well sealed so they let a draught in. And it's not always good for your animal to be able to go outside when it wants, e.g. at Halloween when fireworks might scare it.
My cousins have one. It doesn't let in a draft because it's got double doors.
Whenever I get a house with a fenced yard, I'll probably want one too. It's nice if you have a chill dog, because then you can leave him at the house for slightly longer periods of time as you don't have to worry about him having to pee.
Have one with a double flap mounted in my wall. It also has a lockable slide in door that I use when I leave. I'm sure if somebody was really determined they could kick it in but it would be a hell of a lot easier to just break the window in my back door. Anyway one of the better things I've done. No more getting up constantly to let the dogs in and out because they can never make up their damn minds.
What would be more suspicious?
> robber wandering around the entire house checking every window
> robber easily slips in through the doggy door.
The doggy door would be the easiest and attract the least amount of attention. In my neighborhood we had a poc sending his kid in through the milk chute and unlocking the door so they could rob houses.
My parents usually set something like this up. When I lived with them they had a basement window under the porch open for the cat to come and go. It wasn't always open but sometimes it would be.
At their current place they made a flap with their screen door. They can't leave it open at night since other animals will come in.
>The doggy door would be the easiest and attract the least amount of attention.
except like I said they have a slide in lockable panel to keep that from happening. And also like I said sure if you were determined you could kick it in but it would still be faster and easier to break a window.
guess I should add mine is a fairly high end dog door. The frame is all steel and the panel that slides into the steel frame to lock the door is plywood wrapped in steel. It isn't just a piece of plastic like the cheaper ones but even the cheap plastic ones would take more effort to break than a back door window.

>not having your dog door lead to your fenced backyard
If a burglar is in your backyard, he's already made the choice to burgle you and he's getting in whether you have a dog door or not.
Besides, unless you have a giant breed, most humans will not fit through a dog door without getting stuck.
God damn't. How many times do I have to say they have a panel you can slide in to lock the fucking dog door? If you leave and leave the dog door open then it is your own God damn fault for being a fucktard if you get robbed because of it.
There's a simple solution to this, don't have a dead lock reachable from the dog flap. It's like not keeping your house and car keys by the front door where someone can get them through the letterbox. It's just common sense.
The problem is that dressing in a cvertain way has nothing to do with the chance of being raped.
Looking vulnarebla do, so spreading that women should dress in a certian way to avoid rape is cancerous. To avoid rape, carry a gun and shoot rapists in the dick.
1. it isnt just about how they dress. The women that are slutshamed for their dress also tend to get sloppy ass drunk at parties surrounded by men they dont know.
Also the way you dress can affect how others see you and act towards you
People should be taught not to steal, it's not someone's fault if their shit is stolen, and the person who's caught with their shit is always prosecuted and there isn't any discussion about wether the homeowner deserved to have their shit stolen.
I swear MRAs are so fucking retarded. Fuck off back to r9k
>literally linking David Chappell
>Not being able to understand simple human social norms
What's it like being autistic?
If men are to fucking stupid to understand simple logic that's THEIR fault. Quit whining because your genders a piece of shit and people aren't putting up with your stupidity anymore
Crime rates have steadily dropped for decades. If anything you were more likely to get robbed when they were still used, people just got more paranoid. Same reason people no longer let children play outside.
I've been talking about the USA but the same rings true for most first-world countries. I figure people in third world shitholes never had these in the first place due to the reasons posted earlier in the thread.

All of my wew lads
I'm house/dog sitting and they have one. Its electronic so it slides open when his electric collar is in range.
It's extremely annoying because it'll open any time he walks past and its loud. However this is a nice neighborhood and no one gets robbed here. Animals would probably be turned off by the noise if one was at the back door and the dog walked by for it to open.
>My parent's house has a doggy door
>House also has an electronic alarm system so not worried about burglaries
>Fucking Romanians break the kitchen window to steal both my parents' car keys
>Loud as shit siren goes off
>They still climb in through the windows to get the keys
>They can't even make it out of the street before they're arrested by the cops
>My parents have been receiving death threats in broken English for the past month because we 'snitched' them to the police.
This has nothing to do with doggy doors, I just wanted to tell a story about dumb as shit Romanians.
I'd love to have one and let my dog come and go as she please. I love in the sticks so I can let her run, it's no big deal. Unfortunately dog doors won't work because I am in the country, don't want to get up in the middle of the night and find a raccoon chilling in the kitchen.
So get one that only unlocks if your dog's microchip is near it. Or if you don't wanna microchip your dog then one with a tag you put on the collar. I swear people don't even try to look for solutions to the simplest things.
