Here’s a clever little contraption for those of you who suffer from escaping dogs every time you try to open the front door. It’s a 31-inch high vinyl barrier that automatically extends and retracts when you open or close the door, allowing you to receive deliveries or packages while keeping your pooch contained inside. It has the added bonus of being opaque so your dog can’t see what’s going on outside, theoretically causing them to lose interest, and the vinyl is tear and puncture resistant to hold up to even the most persistent of pets. $69.95 from Hammacher Schlemmer.
