The will to break in of a Buglar should never be underestimated
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/22/2012 -- It was the middle of the night, and Deanna Souza was sound asleep when a burglar tried to enter her house.
Souza heard her four-pound dog, Zoe, bark when the bell rang. After a second bell, Souza went to check it out and noticed that there was a woman putting on rubber gloves and heading for her back yard.
Souza quickly called 911 and hid under her bed. Police arrived in time to catch the burglar.
There is a burglary incident every 14.6 seconds in the United States. Burglars will use any open door, whether it is front, back, side, or even the doggy door. The FBI does not keep statistics of how the burglars make their entrance, but experts agree that doggy doors are relatively low on the list since not every house has one. They are usually too small and a crook cannot be sure what might be on the other side.
"If the door is big enough for a Lab or mastiff, I'm not sure I would want to crawl through it," said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, a professor at Texas A&M University's College of Veterinary Medicine and director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviourists. "But some idiots even try to come down the chimney."
Police, retailers, and pet owners say you can replace renovate or reduce your doggy door to dissuade others from breaking and entering whether human or animal.
There are options available to replace the doors, which vary in prices as well.
There are all-screen doors with magnets that slide back into place. Electronic doors with locking mechanisms, and there are even bulletproof doors, extreme weather doors, and aluminum doors.
The wise thing to do is to not underestimate the value of your dog as a deterrent, said Col Jerry Neufeld, public information officer for the Amarillo Police department.
