Most pets take to their new cat door or dog door quickly – they want to get to the other side – but others need some training. Many get it in a few seconds, others might need a week or two.
The PlexiDor dog doors and cat door have been developed together with pet owners, to find solutions that satisfy the demands of both pets and people.

If you live in an area with strong winds or other severe weather conditions, we recommend investing in a PlexiDor – the door will not blow open, and it will keep other types of weather outside.
In high wind areas, even flap doors with strong magnets might come open.
If your pet door has created a draft, it's because it doesn't close tight enough, or it isn't insulated well enough.
Depending on the placement of a pet door and what kind of pets use it, flap replacements can be a frequent nuisance for flap door owners. Besides the obvious solution – invest in a door that doesn't use flaps – there are some things that can make them last longer.
