  • best cat door review by Lindy
    5 5 best cat door

    This is the best cat door by far. I went through a few other cat doors but this one is the easiest for cats to use, provides good insulation, and looks great in my home,

  • Awesome door review by Irwin
    5 5 Awesome door

    Most cat doors out there aren't as insulated and since we were putting this one through our wall leading to the backyard, we wanted to make sure there was minimal air loss and better insulation, so we opted for this model. So far we are very pleased! The cats weren't used to the flexible flap at first, but the flaps are pretty easy to go through, so they got accustomed to them rather quickly.

  • Works great even for cats review by Cat lover
    5 5 Works great even for cats

    We installed this pet door leading from our house to our screened in patio so our 3 cats can come and go out to the patio as they wished. My husband installed the door himself, he has lots of tools and know how. Might be difficult for someone who doesn't. It is holding up well so far. We started training the cats to use it by first taping the doors up so they could get used to going through it. We then put the door down and assisted them with it until they learned to push it open.It took a few weeks before the last cat would go through it, but they now all use it at will. The cats love the independence and we are happy to not have to open the door so much for them.

  • Perfect for my Catio review by Julia
    5 5 Perfect for my Catio

    We love the pet door we got from your store. It's very sturdy and was installed on an outside wall, so it needed to be compatible with the exact thickness of the wall. I had my handyman install it and he said that it was easy to install. The cats love it. It goes between a "catio" that was built for them and my bedroom. Now they can go outside any time of the day or night and be safe. I'm impressed with the durability of this door and the double flaps that make it better for weather proofing. Thanks for a good product.

  • Perfect and Gentle review by Jenny
    5 5 Perfect and Gentle

    We love the pet door! The quality is great, the size PERFECT and my girls love using it. It is gentle and also with the double flaps does not let in any wind or cold. We could not be more delighted. Quality is great. We will need to move it with our renovation but do not anticipate any issues.

    Our builder installer had no issues and installed it easily.

    I have been busy recommending this door to other friends in Australia as I don't believe anything in this country comes close to the quality of the US product.

  • Long Lasting review by Neuman's Mom
    5 5 Long Lasting

    I purchased this product 14 years ago and it is still in use today. The flap is still clear and flexible. It has held up in the heat (110 degrees) with no problems. I'm putting a second door into the back yard as my 14-year old cat no longer likes all the noise and commotion in the front yard...and I'm tired of being the "cat butler"!

  • Outstanding doggy door! review by Ron
    5 5 Outstanding doggy door!

    Got one of these doors installed for our pets back in early 90's! Mr Hale himself (developer) installed our first one! Great deal of work into making these doors! Bought two more homes since then and have put one in every home! Our pets go in and out anytime they want. Never had a problem with unwanted critters coming in either! Current home has one I bought back in January 2001. It gets a lot of daily traffic from our two little dogs. Bullet proof material, with side magnets keep flaps closed even during high winds. Air gap provided by the two flaps keeps out hot and cold air. Strongly recommend doors for anyone! I couldn't live with our pets if I didn't have one!

  • 4 Stars review by Rockysmom
    5 5 4 Stars

    We've had this door for two months now. We first purchase the Endura Flap door. Once it arrived my husband realized that while our German Shepherd would have no difficulties in opening it, our 7-8 lb Yorkie would. We returned it and on the advice of customer service purchased the Hale. I didn't feel that the magnets would be strong enough, but I was wrong. The door is in our utility room off our bedroom and I walk by it numerous times a day. I feel no breeze, cold air, etc. (we live in a Chicago suburb by lake Michigan. I know cold!) Rocky our Yorkie puts his little nose down and just bullnoses his way thru! He used a doggie door in Arizona on vacation and I know it helped the training process. BUT, that was a single door & this is a double flap. It took about 3 days. Just coaxing and bribing. We did pin one door up for a day or so. Then one night my husband woke up as Rocky jumped off our bed in the middle of the night. He listened to him on the hardwood floor, then the sound of the dog door opening. A few minutes later he heard the dog door open, Rockys nails trotting across the floor, up his stairs (at the foot of our bed) and back on our bed and back to sleep. The dog let himself out in the middle of the night and then went back to bed. 1000% success. Worth every single dime.

    This is our 2nd hale pet door. It cost a bit more, but is very worth it.

  • Awesome review by Susan
    5 5 Awesome

    I have used these doors in two of my homes -- and purchasing again for a third home. LOVE THEM! Lived in alaska for two of them, now in Pennsylvania -- kept out the cold, unless extreme freezing (minus 10) then frost formed on the inside frame -- but that was it.... I love these doors. Just wish they didn't cost so dang much.

    5 5 Pet door

    We have had our pet door for 5 months and are very happy with it. Our Havanese learned to use it in 2 days and it made life so much easier for us as we are in our 80s.
    The quality is great and ease of installing was very good

  • Love my pet door! review by PET DOOR LOVE
    5 5 Love my pet door!

    /Users/marybrooker/Pictures/iPhoto Library/Modified/2014/Apr 29, 2014/IMG_1476.jpg

    We had our kitchen remolded from top to bottom and one of my favorite things continues to be our new pet door. We had the contractors build a bench under a new window concealing the beautiful pet door in the wall. Our little Westie loves it and we do too. The door faces North West and catches a lot of wind. Only once, with high winds, have I caught it not closing completely. There is no draft and it is so secure! Worth every penny! Our contractor built a little slide to hold the cover so we can simply slide it over to lock the door if needed. Our dear Westie is now the queen of her castle coming and going as she pleases. Love it!

  • Pricy for what you get review by DJ
    5 2 Pricy for what you get

    I've purchased and installed other pet doors, and this one is NOT installation friendly. I'm not a fan of having to cut the tunnel down (with tin snips) to fit the width of the house. Past doors I've installed used an accordion design that fit any width of house. Lastly, I find this door to be rather pricy for a pet door...

  • Long-lasting flaps review by Angie
    5 5 Long-lasting flaps

    Many dogs have been using our Hale door for 16 years of hot summers and cold winters, and we haven't yet felt the need to replace the flaps.

  • Excellent pet door review by JIm
    5 5 Excellent pet door

    This is our second Hale pet door. We purchased our first in Utah needing a double flap door due to the cold weather. It worked very well. It was installed in our basement door. So when we moved to the Pacific Northwest, we looked at another Hale pet door. This time we needed to install it in the wall. We were initially concerned our two medium size dogs would balk at going thru a 10 inch tunnel. However, they had zero problems with going thru a tunnel to get outside. Hale service reps have been great to work with! We needed it quick to have the builders install it as they built the house and we got it in two days.

  • Love it! review by Chuck
    5 5 Love it!

    This door is the best thing I have ever done for my home and my dog. I had previously used a spring loaded insert for a sliding door. The door did not seal up properly and the cold winds of Nebraska would push the flap open.

    My new wall insert stays closed in the wind and our home is toasty warm.

    Happy dog, happy wife, happy life!

  • Excellent product review by AZ dog lover
    5 5 Excellent product

    We have had the wall mounted doggy door for a small dog and love it! It's durable and looks great. The flaps clean easily and leave the critters out.
    It's worth the price for the professional installation as well. Looks easy in the demo video but it really took two guys who knew what they were doing about two hours to install it without making a mess.
    Highly recommend this product!

  • Installed it myself review by Keven
    5 5 Installed it myself

    I was hesitant to install this thru my kitchen wall since I am semi-handy with tools. The quality of this door and the detailed instructions made installation a breeze. My installation took about 3 hours and looks like it was done by a professional. The staff at Hale were terrific about quelling my anxiety and providing advice. Everyone we have dealt with from Hale have been extremely friendly and helpful. Yes, the door is more expensive than you will pay at the local pet store, but the quality is far superior. I highly recommend the Hale pet door.

  • 20 years of use review by Jack
    5 5 20 years of use

    We built this house 20 years ago, and had a Hale pet door installed at the time. About 10 years later we realized that the flap and surrounding felt strip were wearing, and not sealing as well. We checked with Hale and they said the had a kit just for that. I ordered one, and found the installation and instructions very good. In minutes it was as good as new.

    Now, 10 later, it's past time for a new flap, and one is on the way. 20 years of unfailing service, and still going strong.
    I am more than impressed. I can't think of anything else in this 20 year old house that continues the give the same great service.
    A half dozen dogs have gone through that door without hesitation, and now we are training a 10 week old puppy the process. Today he made his first solo round trip, and another successful housebreaking can't be far away.

Reciprocating saw

1. Double check to make sure you have the correct size door for your pet. The top of the flap should be positioned at least one inch above their shoulder.

2. Check your package to be sure the kit is complete.

3. Find your installation location. Depending on how your locking cover loads from, check for obstructions. Try placing the pet door between studs if you are installing in a framed wall.

4. Lay down any cloth or cardboard on both sides of the wall for a quick and easy cleanup once you have finished the install.

5. Depending on your wall’s rough cut, draw the necessary pattern on the inside wall with a pencil. Be sure this stencil is level.

Tip: You can cut a small hole in the center of the drawn rough cut to check for any obstructions

6. Proceed with the cutout of the wall by drilling through to the outer wall.

7. Drill out to holes diagonal from one another, with enough to room to get a reciprocating blade through.

8. Use the saw to cut out the rough opening along the marked lines.

9. Place the inside frame with the tunnel attached through the cutout. On the exterior side, be sure the tunnel is tight against the wall. Then, mark the tunnel with a pencil along the outside wall

10. Remove the frame and tunnel. Cut the tunnel along the pencil mark in order to make the tunnel the correct depth for your wall.

11. Caulk the flashing (the thing piece of aluminum with 3 flanges). Apply two beads on the bottom from the rear, then another on the bottom and sides from the front.

12. The bottom pre-drilled holes of the exterior frame should be sitting above the “bottom front” bead of caulk when installed.

13. Place the flashing into the bottom of the wall opening. The flashing will have two side flanges

14. Insert the frame and tunnel back into your opening. Again, pull the tunnel against the wall from the outside.

15. To tighten the flashing to the tunnel, drill two holes through the bottom of the tunnel evenly spaced from inside of the exterior frame. Insert screws provided.

16. Use a caulking sealer between the outside frame wall at the top and both sides.


17. Measure the width and length of your tunnel to apply the carpet. Push the carpet against the bottom of the tunnel. Use a caulk gun to apply adhesive to the sides and bottom of the tunnel and secure the carpet.

18. Slide your locking cover in place once the pet door is dry.

Click below to expand:

A locking cover that you can slide in is included with a pet door. There will also be a pin lock to ensure that the locking cover cannot be removed from the outside.

This is the way that you slide in your locking cover. If you are placing a pet door in an area where there may not be enough space above to slide in a locking cover, you can choose a left or right locking cover loading direction instead.

This depends on how handy you are. More information on the installation process can be found under the 'Installation Instructions' tab. If you are not sure if you are handy enough we recommend hiring a pro to install the hale wall door.

It will be on the outside.

Yes , they are available here.

Yes but we would recommend purchasing a larger size to accommodate the height of your largest dog but still installing it low enough so your cat can easily step over.

This depends on how handy you are. More information on the installation process can be found under the 'Installation Instructions' tab.

Yes, the strategic magnet placement provides a perfect balance between easy to use and energy efficiency.

Yes, the standard tunnel will frame from 2"-10", but a custom tunnel can be purchased for an additional cost to frame wall up to 16".

Yes, the flaps are quite light and flexible making it easy and comfortable for the pet to use.
