Many people all over the world live in homes that are rented. This restricts your ability to do things to the home such as screwing a dog gate to a PVC front door frame.
Not all homes have the luxury of a hallway and the front door is in the living room.
Once someone knocks on the door the dog is already there like a ninja, many dogs can be highly aroused and frustrated at people knocking on the door.
Other common scenarios for door bolting are toddlers playing with door handles and of course fireworks.
Sadly quite a few people have taken the opportunity to use social media as a platform to show abusive techniques for door management. Inc slamming doors on dogs heads, not only is this absolutely disgusting but traumatising to the poor dog.
Many people grab dogs collars without pre conditioning the behaviour and receive a bite, this maybe the only time and the most common time when a dog bite occurs.
Ignore the horrible videos, ignore outdated and dangerous advice. Instead look to proper training techniques of a settle whilst the door is opened and a visitor greeted or delivery parcel and in the interim look at purchasing the Dog G8. No screws required, but can be screwed to the inside wall if needed. It simply latches onto the door so should the door open your dog is safely indoors and no need to worry. https://amzn.to/3IaiybD
