Ideal Screen Guard dog doors attach to your existing wire mesh screen protector and this makes it strong enough for use with large dogs
- Mounts on screens with guards or grates
- Simple installation
- White plastic frame
- Hard plastic flap
- Sturdy enough for medium and large dogs
Do you have a screen door with a protective grate or guard over the bottom half? These guards are great for keeping kids' hands from pushing the screen, but they have always been an issue for people who wanted a pet door. No longer! This door installs right to the grate and seals the grate and the screen under the pet door frame. It is sturdy enough for large dogs to use, and much stronger than a pet door which just attaches to the screen mesh itself.
Ideal has two sizes for this pet door, medium and extra large. Their medium door fits dogs to about 30 lbs, and their extra large is just a hair smaller than most other larges on the market, so we would say that it is good to about 70 lbs.
If you don't have a guard on your screen but need a doggy door for a larger or more active breed, look at the Hale pet door. Because they attach to the screen frame on two sides the Hale and Pride screen doggy doors are strong enough to withstand larger breeds.
