Are doggie doors OK?
Dog newbie here--we're still contemplating getting a dog and trying to work through the issues we're going to run into ahead of time.
We do intend to crate train and I'm reading how people train their dogs to let them know when they need to be let out. Is there any reason to not let a (house and yard trained) dog have dog-door access to a safe, fenced backyard? We are thinking of allowing the dog full backyard access but limiting house access to the rooms we spend a lot of time in (but not kitchen, bedrooms, garage).
We have pretty good weather year round, if that matters.
Y'all have given great advice already and I appreciate your thoughts on doggie doors! Thanks!
