Insulated Pet Doors
Pet doors can serve a variety of purposes. Sure, they can let your pet outside to do their business. They can also be installed within a home to allow the pet access to other rooms that have closed doors.
Carlson pet doors are simply to install and the return on investment can easily be measured in ease of use, greater independence for your pet and happiness for all.
Carlson pet doors can also be selective if sized correctly. A smaller size may let one pet through while denying access to another. This is a way to selectively grant access to a bedroom, for instance.
Major benefits from installing a pet door:
- Fewer “accidents” to clean up
- Less whining and scratching
- Greater freedom and exercise
- Helpful for older dogs that can’t “hold it” as long
- Greater pet control within your home with less hassle. How often do you enter a bedroom, close the door, only to have your best friend start scratching and whining to be let in too?
Common areas to install pet doors include:
- Back doors to yard
- Interior door to garage
- Doors to decks
- Laundry room
Every Carlson pet door comes with a training tool to help your pet get accustomed with their new door. Our custom tool props the pet door open at varying degrees during training. So, the pet door stays open as your pet to becomes accustomed to the new weight on its back.Measuring
Measuring your pet for your new pet door is both easy and important. You’ll need to confirm both the pet’s width and height.
WIDTH: One inch wider than the midsection (widest part) of your cat or dog.
HEIGHT: We are not measuring the entire height of your pet! Remember, your pet will lower their head to enter the door to the level of their shoulders, so that’s where we measure. They will also lift their legs. Measure from the top of the shoulders to the bottom of your pet’s chest, just behind the front legs.
If you’re in doubt about whether the size will work for your pet, create a cardboard model and see how your pet fits when going through.
