Dog Door for Large and Medium Dogs

This door has a plastic frame with a self-liner that serves to 'frame out' a hollow core door in a thickness range of 0" - 2". The liner also makes for a neater appearance in a solid core door.

The flap is a rigid acrylic with weather strip around the perimeter and seals quite well. A separate plastic locking cover is included.

Available in white frame only.

  • Terrific door review by Robinsong
    5 5 Terrific door

    I bought two pet doors at the same time, one for an inside door that leads to a mud room and this one that leads from the mud room to the back yard. I got someone to install them for me, and he had no problem installing this door, although he did have trouble with the other one. This Dog Mate door is far superior to the other door, and I'm glad I got it. It is weatherproofed around the edges (important, since I live in the North) and has a tough door that's still easy to use. I have three dogs, from 10 pounds to 50 pounds, and they all go through it just fine.

  • Avoid this door if you have an active dog review by mikisdad
    5 2 Avoid this door if you have an active dog

    I purchased one of these a few years ago. It proved difficult to install because of the bolts that were supplied and the loose and flimsy side pieces that mask the inside of the opening. They do not fit all the way up the side of the door so it looks messy.

    The worst problem, however, is that the flap is made of rigid plastic and has small lugs at the top which fit into holes in the frame. These lugs are too short and the door was constantly flying out of its frame when our dog jumped through it. In the end one of the lugs broke & I had to cut the top of the flap and rivet on a new bracket and a metal rod to allow the door to swing.

    Replacement flaps are supposedly available but when I contacted the manurfacturer while the door was still under warranty, I got no response. Subsequently, the plastic flap actually cracked and so I again attempted to get a new flap. This time, a retailer managed to get through to the manufacturer (who hide their contact details very well) and we got some sort of response which tried to put the blame on me by first saying that my dog was too big - she isn't, according to their guidelines for a large door. Secondly, they suggested that I must have installed it improperly. I hadn't. I followed their directions to the letter. I sent photographs to them showing the installation & repairs I had had to make but have so far received no response.

    Not at all happy and have since seen many doors that are much better made and usually cost less. If you take my advice you will avoid this product. I am not phased if a product goes wrong but I do get annoyed when the supplier / manufacturer tries to put the blame on me and particularly when they don't respond at all.

    Buy something else - there are plenty of options and I would suggest a flexible flap with a strong slide-in metal closure for when you're not home. It may not matter so much with the small doors but the large one is big enough for a person to climb through.

  • Handy but Hard to Install review by Satisfied
    5 4 Handy but Hard to Install

    I purchased this product to replace the old doggie door (exact same model) in my home. The plastic pieces of the older door began to crack after 5-10 years, and we wanted a new door with new parts.

    The door was challenging for us to install, but we got it done. Probably should have hired a handy man to install it for us, as we're not very handy, in general.

    The door is great for our 50 lb dog - we couldn't go any smaller with the size of the door. It's perfect for her. We also enjoy the locking door feature. The door isn't physically attached to the unit, so we pin the door on and off as needed to close and open access for our dog.

    The door itself keeps closed by a magnet, which works fine. However, once in a while (particularly if there's a strong breeze outside) the door stays open an inch or two, but we can easily tap it closed.

To Replace the Flap in a Catmate or Dogmate Pet Door


Dog-Mate 215-216 Instructions:

1. Remove the closing panel from the frame, push the button marked “press” and lift up at the same time.

2. Next tape the frame to the door and mark the screw holes with a pencil. And also trace all the way around the frame inside the opening. Make sure that the line is straight and level.

Tip: The bottom of the opening should be at least level with your pet’s stomach. While the top of the opening should be at least 1” higher than the highest part of your dog’s back. This is so they just put their head and push through and do not have to duck.

3. Drill out the marked holes with a ¼” diameter bit.

Tip: For doors that are more than 2” in you would have to provide your own screws as the ones that come with the door will not be long enough.

4. Now mark a cutting line that is ⅜” square outside that line that you traced for the inside of the pet door frame. Make sure that the cut line is even using a level. Drill out holes with a ¼” diameter bit in each corner.

5. Cut out along that outer line using a jigsaw or similar tool.

6. Measure the door thickness. Add ¾” to that door thickness measurement and cut the liners to the nearest guide line on all liners closest to the door thickness. Do not cut the notches on bottom of the liners.

7. Using a hacksaw trim the mounting bolts to the thickness adding the ¾” as well, and file them down for easier threading.

Tip: For doors over 2” the manufacturer recommends making your own liner out of a 2 mil plastic sheet (not supplied).

8. Assemble the liners in the channels in the exterior frame and tape them for the time being to hold in place. The smooth side should be facing in. The notched liner will go at the bottom, as the notches will go around the magnets.

9. Fit the rubber seal into the groove in the exterior frame, make sure that you leave a tiny drainage gap at the bottom of the frame in the middle.

10. Dry fit the door in the opening using tape, and before screwing it in place check that the flap is functioning properly. Then screw it in being careful not to over tighten the bolts.

11. Cover the screws with the hole plugs.

12. For additional security there are 2 plastic pins that should be inserted in the holes located at the bottom of the inner frame and through the closing panel.
