Dog Flaps

These are useful for some people, particularly if they are at work during the day. Dog flaps can be particularly difficult for an arthritic dog to negotiate. They may represent a risk to dogs that are left unattended and should not be used if the dog has very poor mobility. Alternative arrangements may need to made in theses cases.
