Cut a huge hole in my door????? Sounds like a very difficult chore. NOPE, it really was pretty easy, and took very little time. This is a well made, well-designed door. I got the training flap, and followed the directions to teach my tiny, skittish dog to go thru. It took about 10 minutes (we took a break). I could not be happier with it.

I was Very impressed with Dan Wark Interiors. Dan came to my home about a week ago to measure where we could put the doggy door in our home to have it enter into our screened in patio. Since I can't put one in the sliding glass doors as they are hurricane impact, we found a place in our dining room.. We ordered it and Dan came in yesterday to install it. It was a big job as we had custom painted walls and marble base. He was able to cut though about 10 inches of solid concrete wall, then installed the hale pet door. He had to re stucco the wall around the door. He did such a beautiful job, and cleaned up immaculately. I would highly recommend Dan. He is very hard working and such a pleasure to deal with.

Installed Hale Omni Panel Pet Door in a sliding glass door frame. They were very helpful on the phone; printed/web documentation had unclear text with near-useless photos/diagrams. I suspect we'll need lots of low-expansion aerosol foam to get an acceptable thermal seal around the insert.I Expected better from Hale.
But, our Dobie charged right through the double flap dog door and is a happy camper. We're satisfied.

I have a very active 3 year old 80 pound Jindo. After researching various screen pet doors on Amazon, one reviewer mentioned that Hale was the best. That led me to the Hale website and although the Hale doors were more expensive, they looked a lot sturdier to me than what was offered on Amazon. I decided to buy and install it myself, which was very straight forward with the supplied instructions. Well, after 6 months, the Hale door is worth every penny. It's not only sturdy, but looks great. Our Jindo loves the freedom of coming and going at will. It only took a a day or two for him to get confident going through the swing door. The magnetic sides really keep the bugs out of the house - its so much better than opening and shutting the door all the time. I strongly recommend this product. Also, if your dog is a rescue pet, like our Jindo, they will give you a 10% discount and donate to the rescue of your choice. That's legit. It was a pleasure purchasing form Hale and will do so again if I ever need to replace my screen pet door (which I may never need to!)

After about 8-9 years, my outside door flap started to crack, so I bought the replacement flap kit. I am not at all handy, but it was very easy to do. My original door was totally great, easy for my dog to use, and very weather proof. the replacement looks every bit as good. You can also securely close the inside door at night or when you are out of town, with a heavy duty plastic insert that locks into place. Hale is a really good company, and they make a really good product.

We've had two different pet doors in other houses before. We built a new house and put in a Hale door. What a difference! The dogs took right to I, but the 40+ mph windstorm we had didn't budge it.
It's by far better than any pet door we have ever had. Love It!

I have had this door for 13 years, with 4 large dogs and it has held up great. The double flaps really keep the heat and cold out. Just this year the flaps finally started tear. I ordered the replacement kit and now it is as good as new.
Review by JayZee3 years ago
The in-wall dog door is high quality, certainly better than the lower cost one I had to replace A little more investment upfront is worth being able to order replacement parts in the future. The instructions were very detailed making installation relatively easy.
Review by Viengnivath Habermann3 years ago
I love your products and just recently installed new interior and exterior flaps. But I have to say I couldn't have installed the replacement flaps without the help of UTube. The Hale installation book was way too confusing for me (75 yr. old female). The original flaps lasted five years and three dogs and I appreciate your quality very much.

Review by Sondraia3 years ago
Have had the double pet door for yes, it was installed right in the wall never had a problem with the door. I have several dogs so door is worked hard, The clear flaps wears out about every 18 months, but they are easy to replace. I'm sure with just one dog they would last for years. Very happy with the product.
Review by Wallfield Tiefenthaler3 years ago
Purchasing from Hale was great. The dog door arrived so quickly, and the cost was lower than what it was going to cost us from a different website. Plus, the Hale website showed us how to measure and determine what size door we needed, and that kept us from buying the wrong size -- the size I was originally going to buy.
The door is very well built and the installation instructions were very good, too. Plus, we live in a very windy place, and so far -- with wind gusts up to about 20 mph so far -- the two flaps of the door stay closed. Our winds get up to 30 mph or more, and so I hope these doors hold up in it. We'll have to wait and see, but I think they will. The magnets on the flaps hold very securely.
Not wanting to spend this much on a door, we originally purchased the best one we could find at a local store, but winds of 15 mph would blow those flaps open. We returned that one to the store and installed the Hale Tall Large one, and we're glad we did.

They installed my insert about 20 years ago, and it is still great. This was the first time I have replaced the flap. Granted it probably could have been done years ago, but I never thought to look on their site until now. It was easy to install and the videos online were very helpful. Thanks
Review by Garbowski3 years ago
This is our second Hale pet door. Although not the least expensive, it certainly is the best. Excellent materials and construction with perfect fit are what lead me to this conclusion.
We have the medium size for our two Springers. When we moved to our new home, it was a few months until I replaced our all glass porch door with one that has space for a pet door. Now that it is in, I'm not sure who is most delighted, my wife and I or our two Springers.
The double door system is very effective in the winter keeping out the cold. The magnetic catches always secure the flaps perfectly after every entry or exit.

I have two twenty year old wall type doors for my two large dogs. When I ordered flexible replacement doors from Hale, the new magnets and weatherstripping wouldn't fit. A telephone call to Hale reveled that the parts had been re-designed. However, they came up with the old parts that I needed and shipped them in two days, all at no cost to me. I was impressed. I would certainly recommend Hale to anyone.

No problem on the replacement.
Review by Einjosef3 years ago
This is our second Hale pet door. They are the BEST you can buy. We just moved into our new house and were pleased to see that we could customize the doors by selecting 2 different colors to match the exterior and interior colors on our door. We had our first Hale door at our previous house and never any problems. The flaps are sturdy and never had to be replaced. The finish on the door never faded or chipped. These doors cost more than others, but it's clear that these are of higher quality. Definitely worth ever penny. My husband and I even installed this new one ourselves. It was easy and took about an hour. Thank you Hale doors for making a reliable product and your friendly and professional phone reps!

I ordered the Giant Wall mounted dog door for my Rottweiler. The purchase was smooth, it arrived on time, customer service was excellent. They helped me figure out which size would be best for my BJ and it works, he is using it with no problems. I still need to install the carpet, but that's my project as I had the door installed professionally.
Thank you Hale Dog Doors

Great door! My dog now has two Hale doors, which frees me up on both floors of my house. One off the kitchen and one off the balcony of my 2nd floor office. Very easy to install, attractive and easy for my dog to use.

Thank you for a nice, sturdy, well made product!
Having a pet door in our screen has made our lives so much easier and the dogs happier!
Review by Syuhada3 years ago
We love the large dog screen door. We were a little afraid that putting a dog door in the middle of a screen door would not work or hold up, but after two months of heavy use, it's doing just fine and have saved us countless trips t open the door.
Review by Hozana3 years ago
I can't say anything negative at all. The entire experience was satisfying and I got the doggie doors as promised. They are higher quality and more durable than anything I've seen in various pet store, even the ones that cater to dogs and cats.
