Petsafe 700 Series Plastic Pet Door

This petsafe original was known as the Staywell 700 Series "Original" pet doors prior to the Petsafe purchase of Staywell. They went by the petsafe 715, petsafe 740, and petsafe 760.

Petsafe has made a number of improvements in the Staywell 700 'Original' series pet doors since purchase.

These are 'Standard' design, plastic framed pet doors suitable for installation in solid core wood doors or other solid materials. Installation in a wall or hollow-core door requires that the user 'frame out' the door or wall first.

Petsafe has incorporated some significant improvements in the medium and large sizes of these dog doors.

Flaps are rigid and consist of two parts: A central flap and overlapping 'U' shaped gasket piece. The result is an unusually tight sealing flap. Because of this two-part design, this pet door is relatively noisy in use.

Rigid, separate locking covers slide down from the top. These 'Original' pet doors are available in white frame with clear flap only.

Here is a list of improvements Petsafe has made to the 700 series line -

  • Good stuff review by David
    5 5 Good stuff

    I love the Petsafe door that I purchased. I actually had to buy two, one as a replacement for my Staywell door and one for my sister-in-law for her new town-home. it is easy to install and the dogs take to it quickly. The service from petdoors was fantastic. I had a couple of questions when I was on-line and was able to chat with someone immediately. She was most helpful. Great product. Great service. Great company.
    Thank you.

  • Not very well built review by Shag
    5 1 Not very well built

    The right hand hinge broke within 6 weeks. I have a golden retriever so it wasn't abused.

  • Very good, inexpensive dog door review by
    5 4 Very good, inexpensive dog door

    I have used about four of these doors so far. I have one of each of two doors for my 16 pound terrier type canine companion. She adopted us about three years ago. Prior to that our frise bouche used the door for several years. Due to hard use I had to replace the door a couple times, as some of the plastic cracked, but it was easily replaced. There was never any harm to the dogs; the replacements were more aesthetic than anything else. I am very happy with this model door and will continue to use it.

  • On a scale of 1-10, I rate this an 8 review by DogMom
    5 4 On a scale of 1-10, I rate this an 8

    The one feature that irritates me is the flap on the inside of the door made of regular plastic instead of the rubbery inner swinging door. Exceedingly noisy when it falls back into place, especially at night: CRASH! CRASH! as it hits the frame of the plastic framing. The middle panel, made of rubbery plastic is much quieter. I removed the outer "weather panel as well as the two of them together was too much for my cat and small dog to manage and it too added to the clamor. I expected to have to do that as I have removed every outer panel on every other door I've had in the last 40 years. K Cotter

    Everything else was fine.

  • Staywell original cat door review by Bill
    5 5 Staywell original cat door

    I shopped a number of places locally for this specific door, and couldn't find it and refused to buy any others. The Staywell pet door is considerably better in design with the second flat that helps seal out the cold air. I installed this door in a large cat house with electric baseboard it, and it works great. It seals out considerably more cold air than your basic pet door. I highly recommend the Staywell door.

  • replacing our cat door review by Oteam
    5 4 replacing our cat door

    hello, great cat door. Just like the one it replaced. Our Kitten is still getting the hang of it. He tries to use his paws and pull it open, but he can come in when we're not home ! The solid flap that pulls down is sort of flimsy, but I usually just leave it off. Glad I found it thru your company's website. If anyone asks about it I'll tell them where to get one. And it arrived in no time ! Thanks again from our kitten "Shine".

  • Meets my needs but ... review by anchoragedan
    5 3 Meets my needs but ...

    It's somewhat fragile. My dogs have broken at least 4 of these doors at the hinges by blasting through. I do like the clear door, which allows light in and allows my dogs to see in. On the negative side, the door is thin and is easily blown open by wind from the outside. It would be nice if a heavier insulated door was sold at this size.

  • not as good as in the past review by dog lover
    5 3 not as good as in the past

    We have a 10 run kennel and installed these doors when it was built 18 years ago. They were great and lasted longer than we ever expected. When it was time to replace them this year, we sought out the same doors.
    The first one broke at the hinges in less than 2 months!
    What a disappointment!
    I guess they just don't make them like they used to.

  • finally bought a new storm door review by pam
    5 3 finally bought a new storm door

    Bought a new storm door in 1998 to accomodate a pet door (heard there was a "new" product to keep me from having to get up and let the dogs out and in!). I had 2-50# plus dogs at the time. It was awesome! That one lasted several years. Finally, one of the plastic "dowels" (what makes the door swing in and out) broke. I tried super glue...didn't work. Broke down and bought another of the same door. Lasted a while but, not as long as the first. Overall, I have replaced this door 6 times. The 5th time, the "dowel" lasted 10 months. And, the "frame" that restricts air from entering or escaping also broke. The 6th (and last) one...the "frame" lasted less than 2 weeks. The "dowel" went within 6 weeks of installation.
    One might wonder why I continued to buy the same door OVER AND OVER. According to my extensive research, the cut-out in my storm door was too big for any other pet door. I never dreamed I would have to replace it so many times!
    So, I broke down and bought a new storm door WITH a pet door already installed. By the way, it IS a PETSAFE door.
    However, it is a flexible PETSAFE door.
    I believe the PETSAFE 700 is a good product for "laid-back" pets. And, I like the additional degree of swivel of the flap. I just don't think it holds up to large "active" dogs that "barrel through because they might miss something on the "other side."
    I am very satisfied with the speed of which my most recent door arrived. Patio Pacific rocks. I will be ordering from them if (when) I need to replace the flap on my new door. Hopefully, it won't be for a few years,
    Thanks for listening.
    By the way, in all fairness, I now have 2-85#, 1-45#, and 1-16# dogs. And they are all nosy as can and out, in and out...

  • Excellent product for the price. review by Buco
    5 5 Excellent product for the price.

    We purchased this exact door about 10 years ago and replaced it once since then. As the second door started falling apart, parts from the first door were used to make it usable for a year or two. When it was finally necessary to again replace the door, we wanted to find the exact door so that we would not have to change the size of the opening. To our delight, with much searching, we found the exact same door and purchased two. One to install and one as a backup. We are again set for another 15 years. The door works and has filled our needs.

  • Newest version is cheaply made and poorly designed review by MrPete
    5 1 Newest version is cheaply made and poorly designed

    Had two of these doors for several years before the constant use by my three miniature dogs wore them out. Bought two new replacement ones again through this site. Could not tell much difference between the old and new version during mild weather. Now that it's winter the cold air blowing through the over sized top hinge opening is so strong it can be felt all the way across the room. This is with them built into a wooden insulated wall box making a double doggy door system. When your company changed manufacturers they increased the size of the openings along the top plastic hinge line which allows cold air to blow into the room so badly that the only recourse has been to put a row of unsightly adhesive weatherstripping across it which has to be constantly replaced. Regret buying this product again and the expense of having it installed then now having to find a better quality replacement with related contractor costs.

  • It's wonderful and we love it. review by Janice O.
    5 5 It's wonderful and we love it.

    My husband finished installing our doggie door which was a replacement for the Staywell 760 Large Door that came with our house back in 2005. It's wonderful and we love it. The opaque door flap allows some light into our dark garage and it's a huge improvement. Thank you for such a wonderful product and fast delivery. I'm so glad I found you online!
