"They are absolutely fantastic!"

reviewstars
By: Jennifer Lute From OH

Family pet.
This is the 4th heavy duty dog door we have bought. They are absolutely fantastic! Our mastiffs have outgrown the large doors, so we are putting in a XL door for them. Our Jack Russell has no problem getting in and out of the large door. Great product! These doors do slam and make a noise, but it's not a deal breaker.

"Welding process near top bends frame to not sit well."

reviewstars
By: From PA

Welding process near top bends frame to not sit well. Needs to be welded on opposite side to sit flatter. Had to use a dremel on plexiglas near top, so that plexiglas will not stick the door open. Does not come with weatherseal size called out not thick enough due to bending caused by original welding. This could and should be checked prior to sending out. Good online instructions. But instructions sent in box should be much clearer. The framing kit is ok, but central piece should either dovetail or be pre-stapled. The primer should be painted on all surfaces. Overall the door and the framing kit was very work intensive to install. It's worth it, especially with the minor improvements that would make the process go easier.

Product Rating: 3 out of 5-stars.

  • Heavy Duty Dog Door / Big Dog Door Wall INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

    Tools needed for installation:

  • Jigsaw
  • Drill with 1/2" drill bit
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Square
  • Level

    Installing On a Wall: The Heavy Duty Dog Door and Big Dog Door are installed on the outside surface of a building, wall or door, etc.

    Step #1: Measure the belly height of your pet from ground level to his underside to find the correct height of the door opening. Bottom edge is usually 6" to 12". Do not mount flush to ground. For the Small Heavy Duty Dog Door cut the opening 9" wide x 14" high. For the Heavy Duty Dog Door cut the opening 12-1/2" wide x 17-1/2" high. For the Big Dog Door cut the opening 16-1/2" wide x 25-1/2" high.

    Step #2: If mounted on garage or house wall, frame the depth of the wall to form a tunnel through the wall. (Use 2" X 4" or 2" X 6" material.) If needed, add a least a 1/2" x 1 1/2" flat outside mounting surfacing.

    Step #3: Place door over opening and use the enclosed two 1 1/2" wood screws to hold door to opening.

    Step #4: Show dog how to use door. Your dog will learn to use your pet door almost at once, but there are a few which may be a little nervous at first. The most important rule is to be patient. Do not let the dog have a bad experience or it may become frightened.

    Most dogs can be trained to use a pet door in a matter of hours. Your dog will respond to encouragement, repetition and play in particular.

    Alternatively, use the door flap as part of a game - throw a ball through, for instance. As your dog responds to your encouraging calls, help it through the door, patting and congratulating it. Repeat the game several times, continually encouraging the animal with positive gestures and comments. Within a short time your dog will be totally familiar with its pet door and use it happily on its own.

    I have seven-week old lab pups that use these doors, naturally, your dog will learn too.

    Problems -- see Special Dog Training Instructions

    Installation Tips: Install 1/8" felt or rubber weather stripping on surface of building or door. Do not put rubber weather stripping on Gun Dog House Door. NOTE: If your door does not close at the bottom, the door is installed incorrectly. Unscrew door and move 1/4" lower. If there is a gap between top strap and upper door frame, move door 1/4" higher.





  • Heavy Duty Dog Door / Big Dog Door House or Garage Door INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

    Installing on a House or Garage Door:

    The Heavy Duty Dog Door and Big Dog Door are installed on the outside of a house door.

    Determine Height: To find correct height of the hole for your dog, measure the belly height of your pet. (Average installation is six to twelve inches.) Mark the height in pencil on one side of your door.

    Drilling and Cutting the Hole: The Small Heavy Duty Dog Door hole size is 9" x 14". The Heavy Duty Dog Door hole size is 12-1/2" x 17-1/2". For the Big Dog Door the hole size is 16-1/2" x 25-1/2". Drill one-half inch in each corner. Insert jigsaw into drill hole and cut out hole. If installing on a steel door, cut hole one-half inch larger, glue one quarter inch pine or cedar trim inside opening. If installed on a raised panel door, cut hole in center of door. Glue/caulk pine or cedar trim to cover styrofoam and install trim to inside/outside of door surface. If installing in a hollow core door, use four strips of wood the same width as the hollow between the panels in your door. Position the wood so that they are flush with the edges of the hole. Either glue, nail or screw the strips. Frame the outside/inside hole with (2) inch by (1/4) inch lengths. Again, either glue, nail or screw to door surface as the photos illustrate.

    Draw template/drill 1/2" holes. Opening 9" x 14" on Small Heavy Duty Dog Door. Opening 12-1/2" x 17-1/2" on the Heavy Duty Dog Door, 16-1/2" x 25-1/2" on the Big Dog Door.

    Cut raised panel door surface

    Use silicone caulking around trim kit for added insulation. To quiet door closing staple 5/8" window felt to sides and bottom.
