Choosing the Right Pet Door

Choosing the Right Pet Door

In Australia, our pets are treated like members of the family. Regardless of whether you’re a dog or a cat person, your animals need a way to get in and out of the house when you’re not around. It’s not safe to prop a door or window open, especially if you’re at work or out of the house for long periods of the day. That’s why Clear Choice Glass has installed many pet doors for animal owners who want their pets to have the best of both worlds. In this blog, we discuss the process of choosing the right door for your pet, and how our expert team handles the installation process.

Which one is best for my pet?

Pets come in all shapes and sizes – from the largest German Shepherd to the smallest tabby cat. So, it makes sense that there couldn’t be a one size fits all pet door that serves both species and all breeds. When it comes to choosing the right pet door, consider the size of your pet. Are they a taller breed? Is their body quite broad? Consider the fact that smaller breeds of dogs and cats in general will need a lighter door as they aren’t as strong as their larger counterparts. Clear Choice Glass has several pet door options: clear float glass, toughened glass and clear laminated safety glass.

Where should I install it?

So you’ve chosen the style; now you have to decide where you’re going to install it. The obvious choice is whichever door leads to your backyard, as it will give your pet the best access. However, some pet owners have opted to install pet doors into walls, or even windows – though windows are typically just for cats. This is a common option for people living in apartments or high rise flats who don’t have direct access to a yard.

Get it professionally installed

You can purchase pet doors from pet supply shops and have a go at installing them yourselves, but the process can be quite complicated – it involves cutting glass (already tricky) to a particular size, fitting the door properly, and making sure the mechanisms all work. That’s why it’s best to get the professionals involved. The experts at Clear Choice Glass have years of experiencing installing pet doors into glass doors and windows.
