Help Your Home 'Endura' With A Dog Door

Waking up at the crack of dawn to walk the dog is no fun. Just ask any dog owner. Rolling out of bed, finding some clothes, putting on shoes and heading outside regardless of the weather; plus not knowing if the dog will actually use the bathroom or not is a frustrating task. A dog door can help eliminate that frustration.

The common perception of a dog door is that it's a loose, plastic flap that allows the dog to run in and out of the house, but the pet company "Patio Pacific" is changing the game, adding valuable technology that can help keep pests, as well as unwanted weather conditions, out in the yard. They not only produce traditional style dog doors, but also dog doors that can be installed into actual walls.

What Size Door Do I Need?

Before choosing an Endura door, you first need to figure out what size door you need. Different size dogs require different size doors, and before cutting a hole in a door or wall, it's good to be precise. Don't worry, figuring out the proper dimensions is not hard to find.

First, measure your dog's width at his or hers widest point, then add about two inches so the pup can easily fit through. Next, measure the dog's height, from the shoulders to the dog's lowest point, again adding two inches for comfort. Once you've got your numbers, you're ready to find a door that fits.

The proper door size also can be determined by considering your pup's weight. Typically, dogs weighing between 8-35 pounds will be comfortable using an 8" x 11" door, while dogs weighing between 35-80 pounds will probably be best suited for a 10" x 15" door. Dogs weighing more than 80 pounds should use a 15" x 20" door.

Endura-ble Options

Patio Pacific has developed several different options for almost any home situation to make it as easy, and secure, as possible for your furry companion to enter and exit your home on their own. Consider the following:
  • Endura Flap Door Mount Dog Door - Double Flap: While it looks traditional, this door is not your a flimsy flap. The Endura Flap Door features an "extreme performance Endura flap" that not only seals, but also insulates. The frame is made from aluminum without any exposed hardware and the seal is adjusted with a magnet. The door is available with either a single or double flap.
  • Endura Flap Wall Mount Dog Door: This dog door takes the convenience of a traditional dog door and adapts it for the wall of a home. This door features all of the same perks as it's door mounted counterpart, including the adjustable magnet seal that allows for increased security against the elements, especially wind. Don't have a door that opens into a fenced in area, but a wall that does? Consider the wall mount!
  • Endura Flap Kennel Door: Similar to the previously mentioned Endura dog doors, this door can be mounted on a door or a wall. However, instead of a rigid flap, this door features a flexible flap to prevent dogs from getting pinched when moving through it.

Endura flap doors will not only give your dog a way in and out of your home, but their reliable and adjustable flaps give you the power to decide how tight it seals. The tighter the seal, the less wind, debris and pests can get though the door. During storms and the winter months, this is a must for any household. So, if you're still tired from waking up 4 a.m. to let your dog out, consider investing in a quality dog door.
