Pet Door Installation

Pet Door Installation Options

When choosing the location for your pet door, take into consideration:

  • Size of your cat or dog now and in the future
  • Traffic patterns both inside the house and out for pets and people
  • Ease or difficultly your pet may experience using the pet door when it's older
  • Use of the pet door by all of your pets if you have dogs and cats of different sizes
  • Be sure the tallest animal doesn't rub the top of the door for its well being as well as premature wear of the flaps
  • If you have short-legged pets be sure to get a panel model door with a low or no rise (one-inch) or place the pet door low on the wall or door. If this isn't possible, I can supply a custom ramp to help your pet.
