I live on 5 acres and have created a small grass run off the laundry, where I have a doggy door installed on the security screen and also one in the glass sliding door. My two Cavaliers have free access to this area when I am home and also when I am out. It means I am not constantly up and down opening the door for them and if I am out I don't have to rush home to let them out to the toilet. In Australia we don't have the large predators the biggest threat would be a snake but these could be encountered whilst taking the dogs for a walk etc. I have found the doggy door good for my situation, but everyone is different.

Okay well, I will not be getting a doggy door. Thank you for the advice.
