  1. Ruff Weather for a reason 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2020

    This is my 2nd one as time like everything else became wore out. 1st one lasted 15 years with minor fixes for 2 boxers. One is 80 lbs the other is 60 lbs. It is installed with wall extension kit. The old one was installed with no under framework and in Arizona heat made it brittle and cracked in the wall. Suggestion: frame out the bottom for stability in the wall. The old one came with 2 doors, 1 in and 1 out. The new one only has 1 locking door. The door is the same size as the old one but with only 4 mounting holes, the old one had 8. I do not see this as a problem. Fit was perfect, 4 outer corner holes matched the same as the old ones. Just wish it came with 2 locking doors. Happy camper here and dogs are safe again.

  2. Great doggie door for our future pups! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2020

    We bought this for our future dogs.
    We have had 3 mini schnausers and will have more in the near future. We had opportunity to install a dog door while the wall was open for other repairs so we went for it.
    The price is better than the same door at Home Depot and free shipping and it was here in just a few days.
    Great price, great service and our future Mini Schnausers thank you!

  3. Ideal - the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2020

    We have used Ideal Pet doors since 2002 or so and have never been disappointed. We have lived in 5 houses. They last a long time and have the flaps to replace them when worn from Dogs coming and going year round. We only bought new frames due to moves. This is our first Ruff weather, very strong and well constructed. We also had the temporary door for sliding doors. Easy to install with good instructions. Great shipping too.

  4. great product used for years 5 Star Review

    works well

  5. Good for Large Dogs only 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Nov 2019

    Better made than your standard petsafe door but my dogs don't like stepping thru mutliple surfaces and the large areas in between the two flaps. So my small dogs and my seniors and using the bathroom in the house inside the door. It will work for large dogs of young or medium age only in my opinion.

  6. Well built 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2019

    The dog door is great and install is a breeze. However, the wall kit is a bit finicky and does require some patience, but it is well worth it in the end. The price is definitely on the higher end, but if it last a few years, worth every dollar. Well shall see how it holds up.

  7. Ok, but wears out fast 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jan 2018

    We thought investing in a more expensive dog door would mean it would last longer. Unfortunately we were wrong. The fur channels were falling off within a year ($15 to replace), and by year 2, the fur channels were again falling off and flaps were so warped they were useless. Total to replace $85! To replace the flaps and fur channels I might as well buy a new dog door for just a bit more!
