Gun Dog Guillotine Doors
This door may be used by themselves as a remote closing panel at the end of a dog run. This set up allows the door to be opened or closed without the need to enter the run.
Note that the hardware needed for this remote set up (rope or wire, pulleys, handle) are NOT provided with the guillotine door. They are available at any hardware store.
The slides are aluminum extrusion. They are fastened on either side of the wall opening. The panel is 3/8" polypropylene.
Alternatively, the guillotine door may be used in place of a Gun Dog Closing Cover along with a Gun Dog House Door in the Heavy Duty, Big Dog, Easy Dog or Easy Big styles. This type of installation permits remote closing and opening of the pet door while the pet door provides insulation from outside weather.
The 5 year warranty even covers chewing!
A: The Gun Dog Guillotine Doors come with two aluminum slides for the sides of the wall opening and the panel that slides between the sides to cover the wall. However, the Gun Dog Guillotine doors DO NOT include any of the hardware needed for remote setup, such as rope, wire, pulleys or a handle.
Q: What are the differences between theGun Dogdoors?
A: The Gun Dog Easy Dog Dooris lighter than the others because the hinges aren't spring loaded and there are no magnets to assist with closure; this makes it easier for smaller dogs and maybe cats to use the door.
The Gun Dog Heavy Dutydog door has a rigid door that includes a warranty covering chewing damages. This is the original door that was created by Gun Dog to address all the issues the owner of the company ran into while operating his kennel for large lab retriever dogs.
The Gun Dog Big Dog Door is the same as the heavy duty door, but it just offers a larger flap size of 15" x 23".

Q: Do the Gun Dog doors come with locking covers?
A: No, the Gun Dog Doors do not come with locking covers. However, you can purchase a closing cover and you can lock this cover by drilling a 1/'2" hole through the cover and wall on the inside and inserting a short dowel. Or you can purchase one of the guillotine doors and mount that on the side opposite the door as a closing cover.
Q: Can I use the Gun Dog doors for just a regular house installation?
A: Yes, a Gun Dog door may be installed in a home, however, kennel dog doors, like Gun Dog, are usually rigid because the flaps must be durable enough to withstand constant wear and tear. This durability has not been seen in flaps made out of vinyl, but it does make them very noisy so installation in a home might not be advisable.
