The easy way to measure your pet for the purrrfect pet door fit

Measuring your pet for their new pet door is a pretty straightforward process involving just two measurements.

You’ll need (A) their width, usually measured across your pet’s shoulders, and (B) the height from their back (just behind their head) to their chest. 

If your pet (like me following a few months of quarantine) could use a few more walks. You may want to add a little to the width, especially if they’re wider in other places than their shoulders. 

Pet door models have different size openings. Just make sure your new pet door's opening is both wider and taller than your pet's measurements to ensure they can comfortably pass through.
