My Current Project ~ DIY Doggie Door

Let me tell you a little about my dog Honey. She has been in our family for the past 15 years. Yes, we have had her since she was 7 weeks old. We trained her to bark at the door to go out to potty. Over the years she has trained us to open the door when we see her sitting there. Well, we are not always around when she is sitting at the door.

Honey has began to have potty accidents inside the house. Imagine, walking around your home and stepping in some poop. YUK! or slipping in something wet. Ewe! What are my options? We tried to retrain her using the Pet Trainer Pads. Honey looked at the pads wondering “why is that there” The other option was to get doggie diapers, she would not keep them on and that can be costly. My final thought is that it is time for another DIY Project, the Doggie Door.

The cause may be because in her old age she just can not hold it like she did when she was younger. So, it is time for Honey to have her very own Doggie Door. My first thought is “Oh, that will be an easy one”. After watching multiple YouTube videos I started to have second thoughts and maybe I need a set of plans before I start.

One problem I foresee is Honey will be able to go out whenever she wants and when no one is home she barks at the trucks that pass by or people she hear talking.

Now, locating the correct detailed plan to make the perfect doggie door may {or may not} be hard to find. Complexed or simple projects for any need may be difficult to even seasoned woodworkers. Searching for the correct detailed plan can be an unwanted task that can cause anyone to lose interest in completing that task.

When you think you have finally found that plan and begin to implement it, you find that something is just not right. That is because some magazines, online instructions or online videos may have omitted some minor steps {because they believe you should already know that part} and leave you lost on where you went wrong {it is not you}. Do not let your dream project disappear.
