Automatic door for dogs, training not provided

Your RFID-enabled pooch now has the ability to take control of their own ”inside or out” fate with this automatic doggie door. As the dog approaches, the door slides open. Assuming this thing works as it should, as the dog walks by, the door will open. As the dog runs into the kitchen for dinner, the door will open.

All this magical door sliding is bound to confuse the dog, right? Perhaps if you’ve got a door not in the way of regular foot traffic this contraption might work. Otherwise you might be in danger of some strange Pavlonian effect, and you’ll end up with a bladder-evacuating dog every time they come near the thing.
