Top Three Shopping TipsDog Door Replacement Flap

Dog doors are wonderful inventions for pet owners who don’t want to let their dog out every 10 minutes during the day. Your pet can simply choose when he or she wants to go outside and use the dog door flap to go out in your yard. While dog doors are handy to have, sometimes the flaps wear out and need replaced.

How do you know if you need a dog door replacement flap? Does yours not operate correctly? Is your dog having problems using it? Or does it let insects, weather, and other unsavory elements into your home? Perhaps it’s time to replace your dog door flap with a new one that comes with a manufacturer warranty and keeps unwanted species out while letting your pet have free roam of your yard. Here are three shopping tips to help you find the right dog door replacement flap for your home.

Always choose the manufacturer’s replacement parts

You might think you can save a buck or two by buying an off-brand dog door replacement flap and install it. Instead, choose replacement parts from your dog door manufacturer and save the headaches you’ll be sure to get by trying to install a replacement flap that just doesn’t mesh with your dog door. It is almost guaranteed to happen anytime you don’t choose genuine manufacturer dog door replacement flaps. When your new dog door replacement flap doesn’t quite fit your existing dog door, you’ll experience plenty of insects, unwanted critters, and weather conditions inside your home. By choosing only the manufacturer’s replacement parts for your brand and model of dog door, you can make sure to keep unwanted elements on the outside and your pet can continue to use the outdoors whenever he or she needs it.

Buy replacement parts from someone you trust

In addition to choosing manufacturer’s parts for your dog door replacement flap, always do business with a reputable online dealer or a brick-and-mortar store you trust. What happens if you choose the right manufacturer, but the wrong model of dog door replacement flap? It probably won’t fit and definitely won’t work. When you purchase from reputable companies, you know you can return the wrong part and replace it with the right one. Eliminate headaches and hassles by always doing business with someone who has been in business for a while and has a great reputation with plenty of positive testimonials. You’ll never regret doing business with reputable companies.

Replace it yourself or hire a professional?

Depending on the make and model of dog door replacement flap you need to replace, you can either handle the replacement yourself or hire a handyman to do the replacement for you. For example, if you have a simple dog door replacement flap that is not electronic or motorized, it might be as simple as removing the current flap and screwing the new flap into the preset screw holes with the included screws. Easy enough for someone of limited skills to accomplish. But if your dog door replacement flap is an electronic model or a motorized version, you may need more skills than simple knowing how to use a screwdriver. If you feel uncomfortable at all in replacing your dog door flap, it’s always a good idea to get in touch with a professional to ensure it’s done right the first time.

How to Replace Your Dog Door’s Flap

Pet doors are a great way to allow your dogs to go in and out as they want to without having to go to the door each time to let them in and out yourself. This can benefit dogs a lot. Dog doors allow dogs to use the bathroom as they wish throughout the day and get the fresh air they deserve while spending time lying in the sun in your own back yard. The dog door will generally come with a flat that covers the opening and is easily pushed to let it come in or go out.

Because of its daily use, sometimes more than just daily if your pet is anything like your kids, it may need to be replaced at some point.. While the original flap will most likely have a guarantee with it, your replacement flap will come with a one-year warranty, so you can make sure it will last for at least a while. More than likely this is a DIY project because replacing the flap on your dog’s door seems simple enough, but there are just a few things to remember when you are replacing this flap.

Choosing the Correct Replacement

When it is time to replace your flap, there are a few steps you can take to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible. If you planned ahead and keep all of your warranty and product information together, you’ll have to just review it for possible replacement part numbers. If not, you will want to determine the brand of your dog door by looking for the brand logo which should be printed somewhere on the door to make this simpler for the customer.

Then, if possible, figure out what model you own. As a general rule, you want to purchase a replacement flap that is the same brand and model of pet door which will guarantee a proper fit. With a close inspection of the flap you might find an imprint of a part number that you can easily order online. Of course, you will need to measure the flap you are replacing to compare with the piece you are ordering. You want to make sure you purchase the correct size. If you ensure these three things are correct, then you shouldn’t have an issue installing the replacement door.

Shopping Tips

As stated, you want to ensure that the replacement flap you purchase is manufactured by the same brand that manufactured your dog door. Look at their website to see if there are a universal replacement flap that can be used on your door but ensure the dimensions are the same. If it’s too small you’ll let bugs and weather inside but if too big, your pet will have major difficulty getting outside. Keep in mind that different parts from different brands are not generally interchangeable. Check the prices at different stores, both in-store and online. If you shop multiple places, it is more likely that you will find a door on sale or clearance.

Be sure you are purchasing from a reputable store, so if you purchase the incorrect part, you can make any necessary returns. Always be sure to check for a warranty, especially if the product is on sale because defects in manufacturing can easily occur and slip past the quality control processes in place. While an “off-brand” may be of similar size and quality, and costs a little less, the hassles you may encounter because it’s just not the same will give you headaches that can easily be avoided by purchasing the same as you originally purchased.

Installation

Installing a standard dog door replacement flap should be a simple task, and it should take only a few minutes for one person to complete. Much of the time the replacement flap will come with replacement hardware or screws but even if it does not you should not be overly concerned. This is because the replacement you purchased will likely be able to use the same hardware as the original flap. Just hang on to them when you take the old flap off.

Follow the simple instructions that come with the product, and the flap should be installed in just a few simple steps. Probably all you will need to do is remove the old one, align the replacement flap with the opening and previously drilled holes, and insert the screws through the new flap. If you have trouble installing the flap, check to make sure you purchased the correct flap for your dog door. As with any DIY project, if you have any doubts about your ability to complete the project, check for a handyman in your area or see if your local home improvement store has any recommended individuals to do the job. It will save you time and headaches and if you are allowed to watch, you might learn how easy some of these jobs can be to accomplish.

Keeping your dog inside all day can backfire in several ways, which is harmful to you and your pet. Many pet owners make the excuse of not being at home all day to let their pet out of the house for a while. By keeping your pet inside you limit their ability to move around and less exercise can lead to unhealthy pets. Even the most well-trained pet can have an accident and piddle if left too long so the electronic dog door may be just what is needed to keep you both happy. On the other hand, it can also be bad for your house since keeping them locked in results in problem-related behavior such as ruining furniture and sneaking into the fridge. Your door is likely to suffer the most in appearance due to scratches from the paws of pets that want to get out. A viable option to consider is a dog door that can allow your dog the freedom to go outdoors and interact with nature while taking care of business. All of this can contribute to a mentally and physically healthy pet, but what about the potential dangers of uninvited animals entering through the dog door. If your neighborhood is notorious for such animal invasions, then it may be best to opt for an electronic dog door. read more
