If you have a Rottweiler, Great Dane, St. Bernard, Pyrenees, Irish Wolfhound, Bullmastiff, Leonbergers or other large dog, there is good news: Pet Door Products can make pet doors for nearly every size of dog and the dog doors can be installed right into your sliding glass door. These doggie doors are sturdy, energy-efficient, and won’t crack or rust. They can take 200 pounds of dog weight and keep going strong. If security is a concern, pet doors come with an optional security plate to keep out any unwanted intruders when the door is not in use, just in case your extra-large dog is not enough of a deterrent.

Measuring for a Large Dog Door Size
When you have a proper dog door for your large dog, it allows him room to roam without hurting himself. As he gets older, this will allow him more freedom and mobility. Here are the following steps to measure for a dog door:
- Determine flap width: This is how wide you want your dog door to be. Open your sliding glass door just wide enough to let your dog through. Add a couple more inches, and you have your flap width.
- Measure for height: Measure from the floor to where your dog’s back and neck meet, right above the shoulder. Remember dogs can duck their heads, so you do not have to measure up to their heads.
