Do you have a screen door with a protective grate or guard over the bottom half? How about a swinging screen door that has a tall sheet metal kick plate at the bottom? These guards and kick plates are great for keeping hands and feet from pushing through 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 or plate, and seals the screen under the pet door frame in the case of the screen guard. The Ideal dog door is sturdy enough for large dogs to use, and much stronger than a pet door which just attaches to the screen mesh itself.
The Ideal Screen Guard dog door is one of two dog doors that we recommend for large breeds in screen doors. 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.
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.
