How do I measure my pet?
The opening of the pet door should be a slightly larger than your pet.

  • Opening width - Measure the widest part of your pet.
  • Opening height - Measure from the top of the shoulders to the chest just behind the front legs.
  1. Do a cardboard test to ensure correct size for your pet. Using the opening measurement size, cut a hole in a piece of cardboard and see if your pet can pass through easily.
  2. Or, do a door test. Wedge open a house door the opening width and blook off the opening height (starting a your pet's shoulders) and call your pet through.
Pets duck their heads as they push open their doggie door or cat door and step through it so ideally you should install the pet door with the top of the opening just above your pet's shoulders.
