    You sound like my mum she leave the air con on for her dogs to. She actually has a door that clicks into the sliding door so you can remove it when their on holiday/camping.

Spoilt puppies, i left the air con on for them today while i went out because it was so hot
    We got the doggy door when a 1.5ft water dragon lizard walked into the house. It went into our ensuite. We didn't know it was there. DH got out of the shower, grabbed his towel, lizard was on the back of it, he didn't know, put the towel around himself, lizard ran down his body, straight towards me (I'm terrified of lizards of all shapes and sizes). Locked it in the ensuite, had to call the wildlife catcher. Needless to say, the door no longer remains open to the yard.

    Default Doggie doors - what about robbers?

    I always think the robber would be more likely to choose a house where they don't have to get passed the dogs (even if they're friendly).

    I reckon you're right to wonder about insurance, you'd have to assume you wouldn't be covered...

    Not sure if they have them for dog doors, but a friend of mine has a cat door with a special lock on it that keeps the door locked until the cat comes near it (the cat wears a device on its collar that remotely signals the door to unlock when in range).

    Would you be insured if you got robbed this way?
    I suppose even small doggie doors a robber could send a child or a midget through and get them to open the door.
    Do you think it's too risky?
    Haha funny visual! Don't think robbers go round with midgets to crawl thru tight spaces for them!!
