Thread: Pet doors

  1. #1

    Default Pet doors

    I live in an apartment and I have heard there is a pet door that you can put in where the sliding glass doors go?
    Its like a perspex panel fits in from top to bottom and the bottom has the pet door in it?
    Has anyone had any experience with these? It would ideal for me but I bet they are expensive

    I looked at them when getting a doggy door and yeah, they're fairly expensive - $600 seems to ring a bell but I could be wrong, it was a few years ago now. I've seen one in a mates house ages ago and they work like you would expect. I ended up just getting a normal one and putting it in the wooden laundry door. Also the one i got is magnetic so the wind doesn't blow it open and dust and crap inside - not sure whether you can get magnetic ones for glass doors(they are kinda noisy too)

    I'm sure I've seen them for much less than that? Here's one: TRANSCAT - small dog door (for glass only) - $129.95 : Ma and Paws General Store, for all things good for your pet But I can only find them for small dogs. I'm pretty sure I've seen them at Magnetmart. But you would need someone who can cut glass to install it. And I don't know anyone who has one.

    The panel ones are more expensive, but easier to install: PetSafe Deluxe Pet Panel for Sliding Doors - Medium [340M] | Dogmaster Trainers

    It may have just been that the salesperson I spoke to only sold the full panel but he said it was illegal to cut into the glass to install a doggy door and that the whole panel had to be exchanged. Worth making a few phone calls before you give up on the idea though.

    Thank you I cant install the doggy door into the door I am not allowed to have the glass cut. I am mainly interested in the panel ones that fit into the tracks.
    I just had a look at those sites gee they are expensive

    jenr, here is one a lot cheaper. I am not sure if ours was from this company or not but it is magnetised and works a treat.

    We got a larger one of these dog-doors when we moved in to our place, glazier removed the glass window next to the sliding door and replaced it with one with the hole cut in for the dog door, so it cost about $600 ... but Ruby races through it like a bat out of hell and has broken two dog flaps so far. They say they have a lifetime warranty, but I'm not sure they're boxer proof - we just have the hole in the glass now until we think of another solution.

    Sean, do you keep the glass sliding door open all the time? or get up and let the dogs in and out as they wish?
