Specific Situations

Extreme Weather Conditions

The Endura Flap™ is the most recommended pet door for all weather conditions. With the option of having either a single flap or double flap set up, you can get the option that is best suited for you!

A double flap consists of a flap on the outside frame as well as the inside frame, and is recommended for areas where extreme weather persists. It is not recommended for shy, weak or timid pets who have issues using pet doors, but the magnets on this pet door are completely adjustable to ease the learning process for all pets!

Endura Flap All Sizes

Big Dogs Sharing With Little Dogs or Cats

The Hale Pet Door is a great option for very big dogs with very little doggy siblings! The flap is very easy for pets to open, so even sizes that are big enough to accommodate the large dogs while remaining low to the ground will be easy enough that the little guys don't have problems! 

Timid or Fearful Dogs

Since the flap on the Hale Pet Door has strategically placed magnets instead of solid magnets along the sides and bottom, it remains easy for pets to open. The flap itself is also nearly perfectly clear which helps anxious pets feel a little better about using the pet door!

Keep Raccoons OUT!

There is nothing quite like coming home to a destroyed room, covered in raccoon prints! While most pet doors do come with some type of closing cover that you can use at night, the only way to prevent them from coming in without locking up is with an electronic type pet door. The best one we've seen against these critters is the SureFlap Pet Door. At this time the only size is 7" x 7" so it will not work for larger pets.

For larger pets we recommend an electronic pet door that can control from both inside and outside, so that it has that extra lock that works against the smart little raccoons! This includes the PetSafe Smart and Passport pet doors. Automatic Electronic pet doors can also work, given the raccoon does not try to get inside while your pet is entering or exiting your home! These pet doors have a safety feature so if anything blocks the pet door from closing, it will open back up (possibly letting a persistent raccoon enter). Check out the High Tech Power Pet Door and Plexidor Electronic.

Raccoon proof your home!

Keep One Pet Inside, Let Another Outside

The only way to truly control access to a pet door is by having an electronic type. When trying to keep one pet inside while another pet is allowed outside, what can always happen is the inside-only pet can closely follow the outside pet and get outside. The way to minimize this possibility is with an electronic pet door that has a normal swinging flap that will close and lock right behind them! 

For cats: SureFlap DualScan

For dogs: PetSafe Smart Door or PetSafe Passport

Keep one pet in and let another out

Security Concerns

Almost every pet door available comes with some type of closing cover, some serve as great security measures while others are meant just to prevent a dog from pushing through. All the top notch pet doors we carry have very secure locking covers, but for extra protection that works with nearly any exisiting dog door we recommend the WatchDog Security Cover
