Doggie doors that let your dog come and go as he pleases are great. Doors that let rain, dirt, wild animals or neighbors’ pets enter your home aren’t. Keep unwanted visitors out with Plexidor Pet Doors, a new breed of dog door. Clip a collar key, which works like a garage-door opener, to your dog’s collar. When your dog approaches the pet door, it reads the collar key and opens. One door can accept multiple keys.
