Dog Proofer Dog Doors for Walls

Dog Proofer Pet doors are manufactured in the USA by Hale Pet Door, the leading pet door manufacturer in the United States. The wall model pet door offers your pet the liberty to move freely between the indoors and outdoors! When paired with a safe and secure outdoor enclosure, gone are the days of confining your pet when you are away from the home. With our wall model pet doors, you can leave your beloved pets at home, confident in the knowledge that they can comfortably choose to explore the outdoors or take a potty break at their leisure.

Options for Thru-Wall Pet Doors

Dog Proofer’s made-to-order wall model pet doors are available in a wide range of sizes! From small to giant, they can accommodate pets of all sizes and growth stages. The wall model pet door can be used for either dogs and cats, or accommodate multiple pets or puppies who are growing fast! We cater to all breeds with our size options: The small-medium size is ideal for a petite Chihuahua, while our giant size is designed for a large Great Dane.

In addition to size, our wall models come in different colors to blend with your home’s interior and/or exterior. For a more energy-efficient option, you may choose to upgrade to a double flap door. Additionally, all Thru-Wall pet doors include a single, interior-use locking hard plastic cover (replacement locking covers or a second, non-locking cover for the exterior can be purchased separately). Wall model pet doors can be installed anywhere in your home, and are not required to lead outside.

For example, indoor cat owners may opt to install a through-wall pet door through an interior wall into a closet or garage where the litter box is located. This helps contain the litter box oder and mess in one room while ensuring your cat has unrestricted access. It also prevents other pets, like inquisitive dogs, from meddling with the litter box.

Safe & Secure Outdoor Access with Dog Proofer Fences

Incorporating Dog Proofer's innovative containment solutions and fences proves to be an exemplary addition when integrating a pet access door into the home by ensuring there is a secure and convenient outdoor space for your cherished companions on the other side. We strongly recommend dog-proofing your yard or kennel if you’d like your pets to have free access through the pet door when you are not home.

Extend the height of an existing fence to prevent dogs from jumping or climbing over, or install an extra barrier to prevent dogs from digging under or squeezing through gaps in the fence line. Perhaps you’d prefer to use our Freestanding DIY Fence System to create a dog run that can be used for potty breaks when you are not home. No matter your needs, we have you covered with our wide selection of containment solutions for dogs!

Safety is Our Top Priority

At Dog Proofer, we prioritize the safety of your pet and your home in all of our designs. The idea of creating an opening in your home’s exterior wall that provides unrestricted access can be stressful, especially if your home is often unoccupied during the day.

Nevertheless, our wall model is designed to ensure your home’s security isn’t compromised. We also provide straightforward security barriers that maintain your pet’s freedom while keeping potential intruders at bay.

When paired with a secure enclosure or fenced yard, you can rest assured that your pet and home are safe - even when you may not be there!

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 by Hale Pet Door are designed with user-friendly DIY installation in mind. Because of this, many customers choose to install their new pet door on their own.
