3 Reasons To Love JGM Pet Doors

3 Reasons to love JGM Pet Doors

You care about your pets, but life can get busy. Mornings are often rushed, weekends can be filled with errands and some days just feel like there isn’t any time to take a break. Our pet doors provides the convenience your pet needs to go outside by themselves and saves you time, allowing you to get out the door on time – every time. This is what we like to call a win-win situation!

It is our mission to improve the quality of life for both you and your pet. Pet doors can enhance your pet’s health and create a stress-free routine that allows your pet to explore the outdoors on their own schedule. Both you and your pet will find many benefits come with installing a pet door.

Health Benefits

Exercise is extremely important to your pet’s well-being, both mentally and physically. Overall, exercise increases your pet’s happiness and extends their lifespan by keeping them fit and healthy. The freedom to go outside at will can keep your pet stimulated and help them remain alert well into their elder years. With a pet door, your furry friend will get the active lifestyle they need to prevent heart disease and other illnesses.

Going too long without a restroom break isn’t just painful for your pet; it can also lead to health problems, such as urinary tract infections. Pet doors help keep your pet comfortable and healthy – even if your schedule demands long hours at work or evening travel.

Protection and Safety Benefits

There are countless tales of pets protecting their owners. From a viral video of a cat saving a child from a dog attack to stories of family dogs rescuing their owners from fires or natural disasters, it is clear that your pet would do anything to keep you safe. Pet doors give your pet the chance to escape in case of a home emergency, or even to alert the neighbors if something is seriously wrong inside the house. Every pet can be a hero given the right opportunity!

Time Management

You no longer have to play doorman every time your furry friend needs to use the restroom, which means fewer accidents – and more sleep at night. Enjoy your Saturday mornings with a leisurely breakfast instead of waking up at 6 a.m. to the sound of scratching at the door. Our pet doors allow your dog or cat to come and go at will, allowing you to rest easy knowing they won’t be stuck inside if you have a long day at the office.

How to Train Your Dog to Use a JGM Pet Door

Training your dog to use a newly installed JGM pet door can be a challenging process. Whether you need to train a puppy to use one of our custom dog doors or train an older dog with an extra-large dog door, many of the same training methods can be utilized, provided your dog is not overly shy or fearful. However, even the most timid dog can be trained to use a dog door with patience and time.

There are several key points to consider before starting your dog’s pet door training. After installing your dog door in Phoenix home, keep that door open when you are home so that your pup gets used to going in and out of that doorway, even when the “human” door is closed. In addition, avoid letting the door flap hit your dog at the start of the pet door training, as the unexpected motion could deter them from using the door in the future. Once they get used to the doggie door, you can install the flap.

At least one of these training methods will work for any model of pet door, including pet flaps installed in French doors or sliding glass doors, high-security dog doors, wall dog doors, and patio dog doors.


Lure him with treats
Pet owners know sometimes the best way to coax a dog to do something is to reward them with their favorite treat. Whether your dog prefers biscuits, jerky treats, training treats, peanut butter, or any other snack, chances are they’rewilling to do a lot to be rewarded. Choose a strongly scented treat your dog will be eager to eat. In preparation for your training session, make sure your dog can see that you have the treats and let them sniff your hand to make sure they get excited.
