Best Dog Door Hands Down!!!
After using a High Tech Pet door in a previous home we were renting, we decided that when we bought a new home that this would be the first thing we purchased. Well December 2, 2015, we bought our first New home!!! Yeaaaa!!!
Having 3 older Fur babies that constantly had to go out (We all can relate) We bought the sliding door version and have now been getting a good nights sleep, I now SMILE everytime I hear the door open and close!!!

Instant install, dog figured it out right away
Product was working as advertised within 10 minutes of unpacking. Easy to install. The question comes up about "how secure is is?" and it looks like it would be a little easier to break into the house, but then they could have thrown a brick through the glass door in the first place. I secured it by cutting a board to length to block the sliding door from opening further. It is nice to be able to remove the whole thing easily to allow guests easy access to our deck when we entertain, but in

Very pleased with this dog door for our window. Only took a few minutes to install. Both my pug and Boston Terrier love it and have no trouble using it!

Easy to install.
The window sash was easy to install and has a tight seal. Even if your window is a little out of square, the sash expansion pieces will adjust for that.

Product was exactly how it looked online
easy to install and fit right into the window. No tools required. My animals are very happy to be able to get out on their own. I recommend this product to anyone not wanting to cut into wall or door of home.
We have a 2 year old German Shepard and 3 German Shepard puppies. I wanted to install a dog door on the side door in the garage to the backyard. Installing the item was simple once the hole was cut. Fit very well and had the door back on the hinges in no time. I used my four dogs as research subjects for the door and within 30 minutes, they got the hang of it.
I like the magnets on the end of the plastic flap, it ensures that the door is somewhat closed when they are in the garage to stay warm.

Great product at a decent price
I have a 90 pound german shepherd and opening and closing the patio door was proving to be challenging with my schedule. I installed this on an aluminum door with cardboard filling was not easy. Luckily, the trim is very forgiving for this door and the install looks and functions great. My shepherd hasn't damaged the door trim yet, but it seems to be flimsy plastic so hopefully it will hold up. I would have liked a feature to where the plastic door to close it could be attached somewhere but it

Works exactly as described
I installed this in my dog's house as his door in and out. His house is insulated and I wanted a door that would close completely to keep in the warmth. This has worked great. Being that it is intended for installation in a door I had to get longer screws due to the fact that the opening in his house wall was deeper than the opening that would be cut out of a door. I've checked the comfort level in his house and it was plenty warm after a 36ish °F night....and that was after he'd been out of his

We were able to install this in a wall that allows us to keep the cat box in the garage inside a pen, eliminating the problem of keeping the box inside our home. The materials used to construct this product are solid and so far sturdy. The small catch was that the bolts/screws used to hold the doors together are a bit long and the manufacuters assume everyone has a set of bolt cutters handy I guess. Our solution was to use black plastic spacers on the garage side door so we were able to get a

Works well, through the wall installation was difficult.
This is the first doggy door I have tried, so don't have a lot to compare it to, but I have been satisfied so far. Our dog adapted to it quickly and it has been great now that cold weather has arrived. I installed it through a wall and had some difficulty getting the bolts that hold the two sides together cut, rethreaded (had to use a tap and die set) and lined up so the inside and outside parts attached securely. The two flaps appear to work well, but I have to assume there is going to be some

After my initial review, I was first contacted by the national accounts manager and then by the owner of Ideal Pet. Both were very pleasant to talk to and sympathetic to my situation. I was informed that the flaps should absolutely not have failed in such a short period of time. I received all of the required replacement parts within a couple of days at no additional cost. Thank you gentlemen. Management at the highest levels of Ideal Pet clearly backs their products and in my opinion that is a

After a lot of research I had high expectations for this product. It has met every one! I have a 4 lb poodle and a 15 lb schnauzer. Neither of them had any trouble learning to use this door and it was a first for the both of them. No drafts or bugs have made their way through. I've had this door installed for 3 months.

A great purchase
I installed the dog door in the door from my back yard into the garage. The instructions were easy to follow and the full-size template made the measuring a no brainer. My two large dogs learned very quickly how to use it. I can now leave my dogs outside and know that they can get out of bad weather easily. The twin flaps keep the wind and associated cold weather out of the garage.
I'm considering installing another one in the door from the garage to the house.

Does the job
The door was relatively easy to install - as expected. I had to order the super large size (15x23.5) because I have a Pyrenees/St. Barnard mix. He's a big boy, but fits through just fine. The door is huge! So it adds a lot of light to the room. It does allow for some fresh air flow, but isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I live at 9000' and we have some cold and windy days. The room does get colder now, but it's worth it and I installed it in a room I can close off from the rest of the

I was disappointed that this door was too tall for a standard Andersen slider, so be sure to measure carefully. The good news is that the top part that adjusts the height can be easily removed (just 2 screws at the top of the unit).This will shorten the unit by about an inch, and the two pegs that push the height adjuster up will still hold the door in place. The weather stripping is inadequate for truly cold weather so we used that blocky air conditioning foam to keep the cold out until winter

Cat loves it
Super easy to install. Just pop it into the track. I didn't bother adding weather stripping because I live in a mild climate and usually leave windows open a little bit for air, anyway. My elderly cat picked up on the procedure right away. She loves her new freedom.

good quality, good looking
We tried a few different options before we ordered this door. This door is by far the best looking and highest quality we found. It is a single piece rather than two pieces that had to be connected. The finish (white) is nice and the feel is solid. With some guidance from the manufacturer we cut the top down to better fit our space. This was easy and made a better fit. We used more foam insulation than was provided to seal around our door but this was a personal preference. I like the locking/
