Installing a wall pet door in a wall may seem like an extreme option, something that should be a last resort due to its permanence; however, walls can be patched and returned to their original condition and the door removed with relative ease. This is especially true in the case of stucco walls.
Wall through pet doors are the best insulating pet doors you can buy, and can be mounted almost anywhere. A wall mount pet door is more difficult to install than the other types. We always recommend that you choose a larger door for a wall installation than a door installation, since your pet will have to travel through a "tunnel" before setting its paws on the other side of the wall.
The new Endura wall mount pet door is the best insulated pet door on the market. The Endura flaps feature a hinged dual pane flap that has proven extremely durable and weather tight.
The Hale Security pet door has two vinyl flaps, one on each side of the wall, with multiple magnets and pile weather strips seal the flaps to the frame. This high quality aluminum frame pet door is available in white, bronze (dark brown), and satin (silver) colors.
The Plexidor pet door uses rigid saloon style flaps with pile weather stripping. The Plexidor uses one set of dual pane flaps, that are located on the inside of the wall. In order to keep the tunnel section from retaining water, the Plexidor features a sloped tunnel that lets water run out.
The Ruff Weather pet door is sold with a separate wall kit. Both pieces are required for wall installation. It has a plastic frame that protrudes off of the wall 3 inches on the inside and 3 inches on the outside, and due to the longer tunnel length we suggest that you get a larger flap size than you would otherwise.
Watchdog Security Covers
Watchdog Security Covers are a tough, tamper resistant method to lock a pet door. These welded steel covers attach to the exterior of your wall with tamper resistant fasteners and use a combination lock to prevent access through a dog door. This is a good solution for vacation homes, snow birds, or anyone who wants a pet door but is concerned about security.
Basic installation guidelines are as follows: The wall must be "framed out". This means that the inside of the wall must be sealed so that dirt and water do not get inside the wall. All of our wall through pet doors are self-framing, so they have their own tunnels and this makes them very easy to install.
Plumbing and electrical wiring can usually be avoided, but must sometimes be re-routed to install the door where you want it. In the case of the Ruff Weather Super Large, Plexidor Extra Large size and the Hale Security Extra Large and Giant sizes the pet door will not fit between studs in standard 16" on center construction. It is then necessary to "move" a stud to complete the installation.
Once the hole for the pet door is cut, the outer frame must be caulked to the outside of the wall. Making the outer frame weather tight is extremely important.
If any of these steps are beyond your capability, we strongly suggest that you hire a contractor to complete the installation for you. Any licensed contractor should be able to complete a wall installation, and these specially designed wall through pet doors make the job much easier.
The Perfect Wall Installation: This picture shows the perfect wall installation. The Hale Large size pet door is perfect for this Golden Retriever, and the pet door is installed at just the right height above the ground. The dog is able to go through his door very comfortably. The French doors would have made installation of a traditional pet door next to impossible. Wall through pet doors can also be used next to very narrow sliding glass doors with a similar result.
