What to Consider Before Installing a Dog Door
If you’re looking to tackle this project yourself, there are a few steps you need to take to ensure the job is done correctly. Consider these three important factors before installing a dog door in your sliding glass door:
Size of your dog—Take precise measurements of your dog, so you know how large to make the pet door. Inaccurate measurements could lead to a door that’s too small for your pet.
Measurements of the pet door— Have a professional ensure that the size of the pet door panel correlates with how big or little your dog is.
Location of the door—Dog doors are typically located on the lower, middle part of doors. Discuss where the best location for your dog door is with an expert. You can also talk with one of our specialists to consider where you want to install a new dog door in your home. Many people love to have a patio panel, so their pet can easily join them outside.
