The max seal is nice but wow, expensive. I may look into something like that down the road. I purchased a super XL door yesterday so will work on expanding my dog door hole over the next week.
The ruff weather one looks nice Tar Heel mom. Not sure on size though, I am terrible with that but I would imagine the guide by weight would help. My current door is 11 1/4 wide, 15 tall and was plenty wide for my GSD. The new one is 15 wide and 20 tall

We've had 2 and this one is by far the best!

OK..I found some with the wall tunnels for 6" wall installation. No problem. Now I ma just trying to decide on the size. My lab is your standard blocky lab, not as tall as the Shepherd but pretty thick (she's a little fat, but ssshhhh, don't tell her) and then my Shephed is about 85 pounds and fairly tall. Is a large big enough? It will be in the basement so a little air flow isn't a critical issue, but I still think I"ll go with a double flap. I looked at the endure, but they are outside my budget right now. I'm considering this one off ebay: Ideal "Ruff Weather" Insulated Pet Dog Door 2 Flaps Wall Kit All Sizes | eBay

|Crocky||Thanks Diane, that gives me a better idea. I love our puppy door too, makes life much easier some days! What kind are the ones you have selzer. Yeah, see it looks perfectly positioned for your adult GSD coming through. Kesler use to have to bend down a bit to get through. Even though our door is large it is pretty low....the bottom lines up just above the base board then goes up about 15 inches or so. Our flap is 11 1/4 wide and 14 3/4 tall. I just need to move it up in the wall and put in a smaller one for the little guys or just get something taller and replace the one I have now. Love the setup too!|

I seriously couldn't function without a dog door, LOL. Russell housebroke himself with ours when he was about 10 weeks old.
I love that puppy setup, selzer!

I have two, one through a door, one through a wall. The puppies start to use them when they are about 3 weeks old, and IDK, maybe 4-5 pounds. It is funny to watch them. The flaps are solid. They rear up on their back legs, and then they come down on the bottom where the dog falls closed. And then they riggle until all you see is a little tail wagging away and going through.
Outside I have a step, inside, the big dogs and the puppies can manage the same size door.

Apparently you can remove and reposition some of the magnets so it's easier to open. I left all my magnets in place. I didn't want my Siamese to escape, or the door to blow open.
Sage was used to the old dog door that was practically worthless. I put the new one in and Carly and Russell blasted through it. Sage went up to it, pushed lightly with her nose, and it didn't budge. She looked at me and I could see the thought bubble over her head that said "It's broken". It's not broken, Sage. She tried again. "It's definitely broken". It's not broken, Sage. You're a shepherd. Push it open! I swear it took her 2 days to figure out it wasn't going to just blow open by itself. Silly dog.

|dogfaeries||I have the large single flap. There is definitely NO air coming through.|

|TAR HEEL MOM||Does anyone have a recommendation for one that will work in a concrete block foundation wall? I would like to have one that opens into our fenced yard so I don't have to go out when it's raining or zero degrees.|
