"The dog got the hang of using it right away..(treats inside the doghouse helped!)."

By: Julie McCarthy From CA

Family pet.
I purchased this door for a doghouse I had built for a neighbor dog that is kept outside and not allowed in the house. I wanted a clear door so he can see out, and also to allow light in. He is only 1-1/2 years old and very destructive. The door seems really sturdy and chew-proof. It's quiet too. The dog got the hang of using it right away..(treats inside the doghouse helped!).

Too soon to tell how it will hold up. The contractor put it in, and it looks great. I like the harder plexiglass door vs a flap, but the old dogs aren't as convinced. The young dogs took to it immediately.

Rottweiler. Family pet.
Easy installation. Minimal clearance. Not that it would make much difference but the cabinetbuilder would like smaller clearance. I usually make my own out of mahogany and plexiglass for my boarding kennels. I'll probably buy yours in the future. Thanks

  • 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.

    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.
