Doggie Door

I installed a doggie door this weekend. I thought it was going to be pretty straight forward, but it ended up being a little more difficult that I thought. I ordered a doggie door from Hi Tech Pet - the PX1 medium sized dog door.

General directions for installing a doggie door on a flat door is:
  1. Figure out Height and Width
  2. Cut to size and maybe even a little bigger
  3. If the door isn't hollow you will have to cut little inserts for the screws to go into, otherwise the doggie door wont be very strong. 
  4. Screw the door in

If the door was a flat door it would have been easy, but it wasn't flat...therefore not as easy. The door had indentations. Chances are yours will not be flat either. You will need to follow the above steps, except that you will also need to create little wood inserts to make the door flush against the doggie door.
