The vast majority of people have or have had, a pet that is very much a member of the family. They join family dinners and receive presents on Christmas day. We would do anything for our little fluffy friends but often neglect how stressful their days can be.
We all know about pets and fireworks and how actually devastating that can be for them. To a smaller extent, this is what is happening when the doorbell rings or there is a knock at the door. A loud sound that they don’t understand that they are trying to protect us from. We know it’s harmless, but for them, it can be traumatic.
This is one big reason why pet owners are getting external post boxes, to accept large packages without the need for the courier to get our attention. This has been a lifesaver for so many and pets are a lot happier because of it.
This is why pets love external post boxes for houses:
As we mentioned before, our pets get more worked up by a knock on the door than we realise and I’m sure we would all like to do anything we could to make them feel safe and calm. It also causes you a lot less stress not having to deal with a barking dog when trying to answer the door. Even if you have a small friendly dog, you don’t know how the courier is going to react to them, so you take the time to lock them in another room all the time worrying that you’re going to miss the courier.
Whether you have a small dog or a big dog, barking inside is annoying and it can distract you and the neighbours. With everyone working from home, the last thing you want is for your dog to start yapping in the middle of it. With most of the family at home at the minute, it would save everyone a lot of heartache to not having to worry about this distraction.
No Waiting for Walks
Recently, a lot of people admitted to not walking their dog because they didn’t want to miss a delivery. This is understandable at this time of year as you want to get your Christmas shopping done online and want it to arrive on time. But your dogs definitely don’t appreciate this, and with lots more deliveries expected they might have to suffer for days at a time. If you had a secure package drop box outside your home you wouldn’t have to worry about not having to be in to collect your package and could take your furry friend on their scheduled walks without stress.
