Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scrubs29 Great pet door
We have not had any issues with this product. It was easy to install and only took a day working with our dogs to get them used to going thru it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LabDaneOwner fell apart after a few months
Same as several of the other reviews: the rubber strip between the panels ripped/tore after only a few months. Have tried several DIY repairs with various forms of rubber gaskets/sealing and NOTHING works- it all slips off. Only option to buy a $30 replacement panel. NOT. GREAT. Will be replacing ASAP since the weather has turned and I basically have a wide open hole in my back door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doghairdolly Excellent dog door
I bought 2 of these dog doors for my home 3 years ago and they are a significant improvement as far as heat loss and draftiness of cold air in the winter compared to regular plastic flap dog doors. They are working today as well as when they were new; the flap still shuts nicely and my dog can get in and out easily. So I just purchased another one for my son's house when his regular vinyl flap on his dog door fell apart. Good value in heat savings and durability.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leslie Didn't last :(
We've had our pet door for 3 months now. I didn't save box or reciept but wish that I did because it does have a one year warranty... With that said we have had to put the swinging part of the door back on 3 times and now the bottom panel has COMpLETLY ripped off and not sure that it can be fixed because it's the rubber that just ripped. I will say that my dog loves the door but she runs through it so fast that I guess it's not durable for that. I have a GSP that just turned a year old.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AndyB Sanity saver for anyone working from home
Background: 2 dogs and 2 cats, I work from home and my office has a door straight into back garden
My Golden was a pest when it came to going out and coming in, muddy paws everywhere especially on the door as you can see from the pics, it used to be in-out, in-out, in-out. For every in or out I had to go open the door and close it again, MULTIPLE times a day. I've still got muddy paw syndrome but at least it's not on the door itself, only the carpet AND I get basically zero distraction from the pups going in and out, now it's only feed-me or I-want-to-play...with you!, but I digress.
Installation: My door is a steel door, a little challenging to say the least BUT after marking out my cut area, I finally managed to get a hole using a Dremel Trio. Once the hole was cut out, this was a no-brainer install. I sealed the pet door to the main door with low expanding foam and voilà
Training the dogs to use the door was easy and took about 10 minutes with a few doggy-treats and me initially holding the flap open just a little but now, they come and go as they please leaving me working undisturbed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nanster I'm ordering another...
With 3 large, very active dogs at on our ranch we've had to divide the yard, but want them to have access to both sides from time to time. I'm ordering my 2nd door to install at the other end of the house. Perfect solution.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LadyKathy Great dog door
bought this for our 77lb lab. After bribing her with a few treats, she now runs in/out of the door. Perfect size. Put it a little higher on the door so she steps in easily without having to crawl through. Easy to install. Hardest part was cutting through metal door. Our box didn't have the template in it, but one quick phone call and we were given the dimension or offered to mail them. Easy enough to use a ruler.
