Is Your Dog Always on the Wrong Side of a Closed Door?

A device called the Doggie Doorbell would let dogs tell humans when to open doors. Your thoughts?

I thought the animal always on the wrong side of a door was the CAT!

Grateful to no longer be the doorgirl ! I installed a doggie door and it's a beautiful thing. In and out into the yard as they please, and when I want them in, I latch it up.

Two of my cats, sisters, knew how to open doors. They didn't know how to use keys!

Whatever works. My friend kept sleigh bells on her inside front door; her lab was trained to ring them when she had to go out.

Lol - humorous, but my Shepard/Bernard mix had learned as a puppy that humans knock on doors, so maybe he should too. He gives a modified high-five to the door, resulting (because of his size) a sound resembling someone knocking on the door. His behavior has also influenced my guy-friend's Pit/Lab mix, who is starting to do the same. My little Aussie Shepard feels this is beneath her, though, and sits wincing near the door in question until someone comes to release her in the direction she wishes to go.

The bathroom door is the one where there's contention. I wouldn't want a buzzer on that one.

Doggie doorbell sounds a great idea..Don't have a dog now but my cat can open doors' by swinging on the handles'.She has frightened the life out of me more than once ,
