Door Model v. Other Models

The choice of pet door model ultimately depends on your specific requirements as a pet owner and homeowner. While our door model pet doors are popular for their ease of installation, we also offer other models, allowing you to choose based on your preferred installation location.

Many homeowners opt for pet doors that lead directly to a secure backyard. Given the unique layout of each home, the most straightforward way to achieve this is often by installing a pet door in an existing door that already leads outside.

Our door model pet doors are particularly popular due to their ease of installation. Installing a pet door through a wall can be complex, requiring careful consideration of structural elements and the avoidance of electrical and plumbing. In contrast, installing a pet door in an existing door is a simpler process that requires less planning and eliminates the risk of damaging utility lines during installation.

Finding the Right Size Pet Door

Each Dog Proofer pet door is 'made-to-order,' and our partnership with Hale provides us a large variety of 'standard' pet door sizes or the ability to create custom sizes to suit any application.

Measure from the top of your pet’s shoulder to the ground

The flaps of the pet door should be aminimum of 1-2 inches above the top of your pet’s back not the head. Getting this height requires measuring from the "withers" (top of your pet's shoulders) down to the floor. Remember your door is not placed flush with the floor (it will be slightly higher than the floor). For multiple pets sharing a household, measure the tallest one.
A tip from the experts:If you are struggling to get your dog to remain still for measurements, try standing next to your dog and marking your finger level with your pet's shoulders on your leg, then measure from the floor to that spot on your leg!

Face your pet and measure across their chest!

Hopefully this is the easy one! Measure your pet at their chest's widest point and then add 1-2 inches to ensure a comfortable fit.
A tip from the experts:If you have trouble getting this measurement, you can open a door just wide enough for your pet to pass through and measure the width of the opening, again adding 1-2 inches for the most comfortable fit. If your pet is long-haired, don’t forget that this may make them appear wider than they really are!

Dog Proofer Pet doors are designed to make DIY installation a breeze. Because of this, many customers choose to install their new pet door on their own. Download Door model Installation Instructions
