Though I've never lived in a home with a pet door, each time I think of a traditional flap, I recall that scene in Home Alone when the burglars try to enter that way. Eeks! Well, technology has come a long way since then, like with that Pet Doorway triggered by a special collar sensor and now this product takes it one step further. While (conceivably) a villain could snatch the special Pet Doorway collar and let an unwanted creature inside, SureFlap double-checks your pet's existing microchip before letting him in, no collars necessary.The Canadian-made product is said to read all 9 or 15 digit microchips, and all 10 digit ones that don't start in 000, 010, or 020 and can store up to 32 IDs (for those really, really big furry families). At under $200, it's more than installing a basic door but a fraction of the Pet Doorway cost. Would you wanna set this up at home?
Remember that scene in Home Alone where the burglars come in through the pet door? I always wondered what it would be like to own a place with a safe, fenced backyard that my pooch could venture to on a whim. Now, it's still far from my reality, but when I'm thinking of my dream home, it seems the flap covering for North is a thing of the past – check out how high tech the Pet Doorway looks?! Coming in three sizes ($395-$695) for pets up to 250 pounds, your pampered pal walks up after playtime and a special collar sensor triggers the door open for him – presto, no I.D. necessary! I imagine it's most often used for dogs or cats, but can also be used for rabbits, iguanas, or even pigeons . . . although I'm trying to keep those out! I'm still dreaming big here, are you?
