Pet doors come in many types and styles. You can get just plastic flaps to infra-red pet doors and everything in between. You can put them in patio doors, regular doors or walls. The doors you put your pet door in can be glass, screen or wood.

You can purchase a pet door that has:

  • Tamper proof mounting system

  • Instulation which creates a pocket between the flaps
