Step 1: Determine Flap Width
Measure the width of your dog across its widest part. Add one inch or more on each side for clearance. This measurement (dog plus clearance on both sides) is the minimum Flap Width.
Step 2: Determine Flap Height
The Flap Height is determined by measuring the distance from the floor to your pet’s shoulder. This is the minimal Flap Height needed for your pet door.
Step 3: Determine Door Size
We have four ready to install doors. Choose the “In-the-Glass” pet door that will allow your pet to enter & exit comfortably. The door should be at LEAST as wide and tall as you measured in the above steps. When in doubt, slightly larger is better than too small.
Step 4: Determine Directions
Step outside of your house and look towards the sliding glass patio doors. Which half of the door opens? The left half or the right half? The pet door will be installed on the side which opens and closes.
