Pet doors that come pre-installed in a door may not be wise. Purchase your doggie door separately for best results.

Purchasing a pet door already installed may seem easier than installing a pet door into an existing door, but we would not recommend pre-installed doors for the following reasons.


Why You Should Buy Your Pet Door and People Door Separately:

  • Shipping in separate parts is cheaper than shipping an entire door
  • Less chance of damage while shipping
  • More options of people doors when searching locally
  • Hanging a door is not easy; you'll probably want it done by a professional. So you've already got the installer at your house. Installing the pet door in the door you've chosen won't cost much more.
  • Fixing problems with mail-order doors will be more troublesome than locally
  • It's very important, especially for larger dog doors, that the dog door be installed at the correct height. Or you may need an installation height that is a compromise for two different sized pets. Getting that done right is a lot easier when you're supervising the installer directly.
  • If you need to return the door for any reason, it's much easier to do locally
