How to measure your Ideal Pet

To determine the correct size door, simply measure the width (A) and height (B) of your pet.

(A) Measure the widest point of your pet's shoulder.

(B) Measure from the top of your pet's back (just behind their head) to the bottom of chest.

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.

    Up here in coastal Maine, winters can be below zero with hi winds. The Dubble door system is great.

    it's finally in

    Posted by Unknown on 21st May 2023

    After several attempts to get the right size of dog door I finally called Ideal Pet Products and gave them the demission's of old dog door and they were able to set me up with the correct size door and wall insert. My old door was 23 years old and just needed to be replaced..

    What a great product! Ruff Weather Dog SL

    Posted by Jackie on 2nd Dec 2022

    At first thought too big for new home but we made it work. Love the quality and the look of it. Dog’s been used to a single flap in slider purchases earlier this year, but took right away to this dual door thru the wall. Very very satisfied.

    Ruff Weather for a reason

    Posted by Larry 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.

    Great doggie door for our future pups!

    Posted by Dave Newman 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!

    Ideal - the best

    Posted by Carol C Sclafani 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.

    Good for Large Dogs only

    Posted by Unknown 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.
