Back to Blog


If you like having options, you’ll love our pet doors. There are so many possibilities—from custom sizes to frame colors to cover load direction, number of flaps, exterior cover, and more. Every Hale pet door is unique and custom-made to order.

Keep reading to discover all the design options for dog doors available from Hale Pet Door.

Unleash the Pawfect Fit: Tailor-Made Dog Doors by Hale

When you choose Hale, you’ll enjoy a fully customizable dog door. First, we have various dog door models to fit your needs. You can choose from our door model, wall model, or screen model pet doors. Wall model pet doors are useful if you want to hide the pet door behind a backyard bush, doghouse, or planter.

Once you choose a model, select a frame finish that blends in perfectly with your home’s color and décor. Choose which accessories you want, such as an optional rain cap. Your pet door will be ideal for your doggy or kitty’s safety and comfort, and your home’s design and layout, energy efficiency, and security requirements.

Unleash Your Creativity with a Custom Canine Door

Sometimes a standard pet door won’t fit into the location where you want it. We can create custom pet doors built for virtually anywhere. On occasion, we have even made it wider than taller, such as for a pet turtle. We work with our clients to create a custom pet door with a size and shape to fit a specific area. 

Do you need a custom width to perfectly fit a narrow wall, glass door panel, or sidelight next to a storm door? How about custom pet doors for multi-lite French doors and RVs? We’ve done it. 

Find the Perfect Frame Hue for Your Custom Dog Door

We offer 4 frame colors—Arizona Beige, Brushed Aluminum, Dark Bronze, and White. You can also choose different colors for the dog door exterior frame and interior frame. The Dark Bronze and Aluminum are anodized, so you can’t paint over them. However, if you would like the frame to exactly match the inside or outside of your home, the White and Arizona Beige frames can be painted by scuff sanding the surface.  

Choose Your Pet Portal’s Cover Load Direction for Ultimate Peace of Mind

All our dog doors can be ordered with security covers that load from the top, the left side, or the right side, depending on which style works best for your dog door location.

Flap-tastic Choices: Single or Dual? Training Flaps for a Paw-some Pet Door Experience

Our pet doors come standard with dual flaps, for optimal energy efficiency, but you can also order a single flap if that works better for you. A temporary training flap can be added if your doggie needs time to get accustomed to their new pet door.

Top Questions About Custom Dog Doors

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding our custom dog doors:

Can I customize the size and shape of the dog door to fit a specific area in my home?

Yes, we can build a pet door to perfectly fit a particular location. Just make sure that your pet can use it easily and comfortably.

Can I install a customized dog door myself, or do I need professional installation?

Custom dog door installation can typically be handled by the homeowner. You may need a professional to install the pet door in a non-standard door or wall if you don’t have the proper tools. The biggest challenge is installing a pet door through a brick wall. This will likely need to be handled by a professional installer.

Choose Hale Pet Door for the Best Custom Dog Doors

All Hale pet doors are made from extruded aluminum with steel reinforced corners, with the highest quality components—PVC vinyl flaps, stainless steel strikes, heavy-duty magnets, polyethylene security cover, and steel pin lock. But the similarities end there because all our pet doors can be fully customized to fit your requirements and preferences.
