We get calls from quite a few customers that are trying to find a pet door for their senior pet. Some call that have never even owned a pet door, but because now their dog takes a certain type of medication they need to be let out much more frequently, often in the middle of the night, and a pet door is a wonderful solution. Others are replacing an existing pet door because it’s become too uncomfortable to use, let’s face it we all get a little less spry the older we get, so going through the same smaller opening or having to duck down all the time might not be as easy. Could be because the door was mounted too low or too high or with some breeds problems like hip dysplasia and arthritis might be a factor in needing a door mounted much lower that still offers a taller opening. Possibly some not so large breeds like Corgis and Doxies that may be short in stature, but have longer bodies that can make them prone to back problems, so a low step over is very important.Even if you have a normal doggy door you may want to consider a dog screen door. Dogs may accidentally damage your screen door when trying to come in or get out of the home. Not many dog screen door products exist because a screen door is a very simple construction which has no substantial thickness to it in order to allow for a dog door. The trick is to use your current screen door and modify it into a dog screen door. The article that follows will show you how to make a dog screen door from your existing screen door.For instance if you are thinking about a wall mount, but have base boards or framing that you can’t cut into making it so that they door has to be mounted 7 or 8 inches from the floor. Well, that step over might be a bit high and more daunting, especially since your dog has to go through a tunnel. We say that you generally don’t want the pet door mounted more than about 3-4” from the floor. Possibly taking a look at a different installation spot would be a better choice. If a different installation type is not available then considering ramps or steps making the door more easily accessible would make it much more comfortable.With the masking tape framing out the area for the dog screen door you can now cut it out. Start at the bottom of the screen door and cut across. This will give you enough room to cut the sides of the area you taped off. Do not cut the top of the screen. The goal here is to make a flap out of the current screen. Do not fold the flap up or crease it.
