A window pet door is usually made for small animals like kittens and puppies. It’s because we usually use flaps or screen doors on it and the materials is not for animals heavier than 20 pounds.

You may already have a window opening on your balcony where your pet can enter and exit through. But it is not always that you can you leave your windows open. Burglars and other intruders can enter inside your house.

On the other hand, if you put a screen on your window, cats can figure out that they can have their way inside by crawling a hole through the screen.

They could also accidentally break your pots or vases.

To solve this problem, you may want to install a window pet door for your pet. This type of door is not only made for cats, it is also preferred for small animals like puppies. This window pet door has thin aluminum or plastic frames.

The materials are not extremely strong so it is not recommended for big animals like large breeds of dogs. They can easily be damaged if the dog going through is more than 20 pounds.   

You can install window pet screen and flaps for ease of use. A window screen is also a sturdy place to attach a pet door as long as it is intended for small animals like puppies. You can install a window pet door in the screen of your window to let your pet come and go. It is a plastic door held closed usually by a small magnet.

To install a window screen mounted door, you have to cut a perfectly good window screen. If you happen to cut a hole in the top of the screen instead of the bottom, you may have to replace your window screen and start the process all over again.

To avoid this mistake, try marking the location of the pet screen door with a masking tape or use a pencil so you’ll know where is the top and bottom of your screen. This way, you’ll know where you’ll cut the screen.

Tips in installing a window screen pet door
1. Place a piece of plywood or a thick board on the ground. Lie half of the frame of the pet door on top of it.

2. Next, lay the window screen on top-half of the door and the wooden board to line the entrance in the correct position. Move the screen until the pet door lines up with the pencil marks or tape marks you made on the screen.

3. You can use the grooves from the dog or cat door all the way around the frame as a guide to cutting a door-sized hole in the screen.

4. To roll the screen in, use a screen roller to roll the edges of the cut screen into the dog frame with screen spline. After this, your gate is complete and you can now reinstall the screen.

Your pet can be easily trained to use this type of door. He will only need to push the flap if he wants to enter or exit the house. The magnet keeps the flap closed while your screen keeps the bags out even if the window is open.

Putting window pet doors in the screen just lets the pet come and go as they please so long as the window is open. With this type of pet door, you’ll never have to worry about your pets going back to your place.
