Pet doors are great for dogs and owners alike. If you have a small dog, good news, we manufacture pet doors for small dogs such as Chihuahuas, Pugs, Pekingese, Maltese, Dachshunds, and Shih Tzus. A pet door offers numerous benefits, such as:
- Comfort and convenience – Dogs have moments of urgency and need to relieve themselves. Imagine the presence of a joyous dog glad to see you instead of a small, anxious pet who has been holding it waiting for your return. A customized, cost-effective pet door will do away with the frequent need for clean-up and eliminate odors.
- Safety and security – Injury or death may be the result of dogs left outside by their owners while they go for work during the heat of summer and frigid temperatures of winter. Dogs can also escape in case of a fire.
- Physical exercise and mental stimulation – Vital mental stimulation and proper health of your dog will be achieved with physical exercise from running and engaging outdoors. Offering secure and safe access to outdoors during the day can effectively curb unwanted behavioral issues related to boredom.
You can get pet door products for any size that are fixed right into your sliding glass door and enjoy these benefits.
Energy Efficient Pet Doors for Small Dogs

Made in the U.S.A., the Endura Flap cuts down energy consumption with magnetic seal strips that close upon your pet leaving or entering home. If your very small or toy dogs has difficulty pushing open the pet door flap, a screwdriver can be used to pop out some of the magnets and reduce the resistance of the door to match the small dog`s strength. Our pet doors have your security concerns taken care of since our pet doors come with an optional security plate to keep unwanted intruders. Pet doors from Pet Door Products are fashioned with excellent functionality, and clean lines to ensure your view is not obstructed.
