  • Works great. review by Michael
    5 5 Works great.

    ...been using this doggie door for approximately 25 yrs ...dogs seem to love it....they learn how to use it quickly and keep my wife and I from constantly attending them to go in or out....also very as described.

  • Perfect for my needs review by Carla
    5 5 Perfect for my needs

    I had a super large Ideal Pet door installed in 2000 and it was due for a new flap (just the second in 18 years) when my lab was playing vigorously outdoors and didn't see the door block was in. She ran into it at full speed and didn't break the door block but busted out the channels which guide it. Actually, the plastic held up and it ripped out of the wall! It is so sturdy that it is a wonder she didn't break her neck. So I ordered another one which installed easily and I am sure I will get another 20 years out of this one - but I am going to put a big black "X" on the part of the block facing outdoors so maybe the speed queen lab will notice!

  • Our three Labs said thanks! review by John
    5 5 Our three Labs said thanks!

    I just installed. Incredible design incorporating opening cover for hole template! Metal door and I admit I used an industrial grinder vs a jig saw. Honestly I knocked the pins out to take off the door and put them back in in less than 40 minutes. You folks are awesome!

  • Cheap and does the job review by Perrie
    5 4 Cheap and does the job

    Inexpensive and easy to install. The magnets aren't very strong, so probably not suited for really windy/cold areas. Other than that, pretty standard dog door that works well!

  • large pet door review by sue
    5 5 large pet door

    This is not the my first dog door I've put over the years but this was the easiest door I have ever installed. The instructions are very easy and it looks great! I only wish taking out the old door was as easy as putting this one in

  • Love it review by Sue
    5 5 Love it

    We've had Ideal pet doors for many years. They hold up very well. Our older dog was a large dog who ran through it all the time. My husband thought we needed a very large door so he wouldn't tear it up as he came charging through . When he was gone we got a smaller dog so got the medium size door which I thought looked way too small, but it's perfect. It seals well and keeps out the cold.

  • Pet Door Replacement Flap review by Zamboni
    5 5 Pet Door Replacement Flap

    As in previous years, the product is 100% excellent. Quality is top notch, ease of ordering is perfect, instructions for installation simple and detailed! The savings of being able to order just the replacement flap is so very appreciated even though each flap has lasted me a minimum of 7 years even though being constantly used by 2-3 dogs! THANK YOU!!!

  • Good product, easy install review by Charlie
    5 4 Good product, easy install

    Overall, the Super Large Pet Door was very easy to install and works very well. The only drawback is the door does not seal outside air off very well along the sides. It has a magnetic catch/seal along the bottom, but nothing to keep air from escaping/entering along the sides. This is not a problem for me...I used it on an interior garage door. I have an older pet door installed on the garage wall to the outside, that works better for outside use, but on the interior door, I still get a slight draft froom the unheated garage. This may work well as an exterior door in a southern climate, but I wouldn't recommend it for northern/cold climates as a primary pet door.

A: The Ideal original frame is made out of plastic, whereas the Deluxe is made from aluminum.

Q: How high off the ground does this have to be installed?
