The Magnador dog door is a cost effective, simple solution to providing your pets the easy access to and from the yard that they deserve. These pet doors are ideal for doors and kennels, but can also be used for lanais or screened porches. The frame shown in the pictures includes the entire dog door. There is not a decorative frame for the other side—you have the option of finishing the other side as you please. Wherever you plan to install the pet door, make sure to properly frame out the area in order to prevent any water intrusion.

Available in small, medium, and large, the Magnador pet doors are designed to accommodate both dogs and cats. There are also two types of magnet strength: standard or heavy duty. Heavy duty magnet strength is recommended for areas prone to heavier winds and weather, as they help improve insulation and weather resistance. Please note that increasing the magnet strength may prevent cats from being able to share the large size with larger pets due to the increased resistance; if this is the case then we recommend the standard magnet strength.



  • Chew resistant, polypropylene flap
  • 2-Way locking system (in only or out only)
  • Standard magnet strength suits temperate climates. Upgrade to heavy duty magnets for rougher weather
  • Available in white or bronze (very dark brown)
  • Sizes come in small ‒ large



  • Easy for pets to learn how to use
  • Quick installation
  • Saves you from letting the pets in and out all day
  • More chew resistant than common flexible flaps

  • Pretty good review by Sharon
    5 3 Pretty good

    It fit our existing opening but the outside frame that attaches to the door surface, needs to be wider. The screws holes were too close to the opening and did not screw into anything. Retrofitting worked but an extra inch on each side of the original would have saved us a few hours.

    I am very happy with the Magnador dog door. My dog loves it just as much as I do--she comes and goes as she desires. It gives her a lot more freedom to come in and out as she desires. Great product and I am very pleased.

    Replaced a 19 year old Magnador with this new one with the heavy duty magnet. Installation was 10 minutes. Dogs were a little intimidated with the door because of the heavy duty magnet but after a day or two they're in and out just like before. Magnet has eliminated the snow coming in from outside.

  • Only Pet Door Worth Purchasing review by Jim
    5 5 Only Pet Door Worth Purchasing

    Most doors have a plastic flap which doesn't keep out bugs and other pests and leaks a lot of air. Your product is far superior.

  • Need a flexible door. review by Tom
    5 3 Need a flexible door.

    This door was mounted in a frame in our screened patio.
    Every time our larger dog went through the door, the flap hit the head of a screw in the frame. The first chip broke out of the flap almost immediately.
    The rest of the flap lasted for a couple of years, but it eventually cracked along the entire top edge and the flap fell out.
    While the price is good, I would rather have a flexible flap that can better withstand the constant contact of the flap and the frame.

  • Good product review by snowflake
    5 5 Good product

    I recently installed 8 of the large pet doors - the Magnador. These installed easily and my dogs became quite comfortable with them. My litter of poodle pups actually did better with the doors than my adult dogs.
    I may wish I'd ordered the stronger magnets. Our wind in NW Ohio gets a bit gusty and I'm thinking the standard magnet may not be adequate, but we'll see.
    The doors are good doors. I'd recommend to anyone looking for good pet doors.

  • Magnador Kennel Dog Doors-Large, Heavy Duty Magnets, Bronze Frame review by Berner Mom
    5 5 Magnador Kennel Dog Doors-Large, Heavy Duty Magnets, Bronze Frame

    I have used a Magnador for several years. My last one, the magnet became weak and the door gaped open a lot. I was VERY pleased to see that the door is now made with the option of stronger magnets. Took my two Bernese Mountain Dogs no time to get used to the stronger magnet. Bronze color looks more black to me, which I prefer. My first Magnador cracked in the middle, where the plastic extrusion point was, but Magnador corrected that problem as well. I'm very pleased with the new door with stronger magnets.

  • Does the job, easy install. review by Golden love
    5 4 Does the job, easy install.

    Very easy to install. Works for our two golden retrievers. Took them a bit to get comfortable because it isn't clear and swings back quickly, but once they realized it wouldn't hurt them, they took right to it.

  • Excellent product review by andynick
    5 5 Excellent product

    Bought this door to replace the same model that was installed with the screen enclosure, After 8 years the overhang frame cracked from age, exposure to Florida sun, and a new Lab that cut the corner going in and out. The new door was ordered in the bronze color and matches the screen enclosure perfectly. I mounted the door with the overhang inside the enclosure braces, and it's working well. The stronger magnets are also a plus.

    5 5 Quick and easy to replace

    This was a Magnador replacement after 16 years of dog and cat use. It was so quick and easy to replace that it took longer to take out of the box than it took to install. WOW!!! it was such a surprise the fact the holes were in the same place as the old one. I will be happy to recommend Magnador to friends and family .

  • Great Product for the Price review by Latlind Kennels
    5 5 Great Product for the Price

    Replaced my original Magnadors after 25 yrs. A perfect replacement fit! The upgraded magnets stay closed even in strong winds, but the dogs have no problem pushing through to go in and out. I chose to add guillotine doors for indoor containment at night, and for extra climate control when necessary.

  • I recommend it review by Ueli
    5 4 I recommend it

    This was the replacement for my first door which lasted about 7 years. I did have to patch up the plastic at the hinges which cracked after 5 years. I use the largest dooor available for a big dog. To replace it, I visited several pet shops, but no one seemed to carrry it. I searched the internet and was happy to find it.
    It took the dog some time to learn to overcome the extra duty magnets.
    The only thing I don't like, it is very noisy !

    5 5 great door

    This is my second door. First one lasted 7-yrs of multiple in and outs daily by both my dogs, often with a bang from darting after squirrels or rabbits in the back yard.

    Well worth the money and a good durable product.

  • love this door review by Topbrass
    5 5 love this door

    This is the 4th one of these doors that I have bought in the last 10 years, not because they wear out, but because we moved to new places where I needed one each time.
    I love them. Pups learn to use them within a day and the large size also lets the mom come in and out.
    The price is also right and they are much more serviceable than the Rubber flaps, which my dogs always manage to chew.

  • Good door review by Cathy
    5 4 Good door

    Installed quickly. Directions really weren't needed, but were correct. Nice looking door. Locking screws to lock the door work well and quickly even with a large, very persistent dog trying to get in while the others are feeding. Works easily for the largest dog and the small dog and cat (don't judge....we inherited irresponsible relative's pets.....anyone want a non-trained dog or two?).

    Would be nice if there was some sort of weather stripping. I know this is meant for a kennel, but it was the best we could find for the house door. It lets more air through than the average dog door. If the door had some sort of weather stripping, this would be the best dog door on the planet!

We used to see this Magnador Display at Trade Shows 25 Years Ago!

Step 1: Check the installation location to make sure there is nothing that will obstruct the flap’s ability to swing freely.

Step 2: Set the height of the pet door opening according to the shoulder height of your tallest pet. Make sure the pet door will be installed on a flat surface.

Step 3: With masking tape, place the template against its exact installation location.

Step 4: Mark the screw positions and the four corners on the template with a pencil.

Step 5: Draw a line to connect all 4 corner marks.

Please Note: The area inside the 4 corners will be cut out for the door.

Step 6: Drill four, ⅜” holes INSIDE of each corner of the cut-out area. Use a jigsaw to cut along the marked line which connects the four corners.

Step 7: Using the ⅛” bit, drill ¾” deep holes at each location marked from the template. Do not drill completely through the mounting area yet. These are “pilot” holes.

Please Note: The Rain Hood should be on the outside for maximum weather protection. Again, check that the door panel will swing freely through the cut-out area.

Step 8: Remove the 4 corner screws from the test fit, then remove the pet door from the mounting surface to apply a bead of caulk on the back surface of the door. The caulk should be between the raised lines.

Step 9: Re-install the Magnador by loosely twisting in the corner screws. Press against the mounting surface to flatten the caulk to provide a tight weather seal.

Step 10: Install the remaining mounting screws, but do not tighten.

Step 11: Check again for an unobstructed swing of the hinged door panel. If rubbing occurs between the frame and the panel, push the frame gently in an opposite direction that will reduce rubbing. Tighten the mounting screws.

Step 12: Tighten the remaining screws evenly to apply sufficient pressure on the caulk.

Yes. With the magnador pet door you can install this in a wall, make sure to seal the inside and sides of the wall to prevent moisture from entering.

This would not be the best door for keeping the heat or cold out. If you want something more insulating, we recommend the Endura Flap

It is chew resistant, but not quite chew proof. To train your pets not to chew on the flap, we recommend rubbing a bit of vaseline and cayenne pepper on the flap.

You can install this on doors of any thickness because there is only 1 frame, as long as you properly frame out the openings.

This is designed to be installed in any location at an affordable price. You can frame out the door yourself with wood or similar material for a more aesthetic look.

This comes in white and bronze (very dark brown).

It depends on what size you get and how determined your cat is, but we have heard of cats and small dogs having some trouble with the magnador pet door large size that has the heavy duty magnets. If you are concerned about keeping your cat in, we would recommend a electronic pet door instead.

No, but there is a lock on the frame of the flap to prevent entry or exit. There are small locking knobs that you can position to lock the flap when needed.

Replacement flaps are available here.

Unfortunately there is no soft flap replacement for the magnador kennel door.

It is possible, however, given the delicacy of the frame and installation method, changing the magnets between the two could be difficult and cause damage to the frame

Well the largest flap is 13 x 19, so it may not be the best if you have multiple dogs in different sizes sharing the same door.
