Premium quality small dog doors made with the finest materials and expert craftsmanship

—and we offer a few different sizes to accommodate various small dog breeds. Our models range from easy-to-install door model pet doors to ones that can be used in walls, screen doors and windows, and sliding glass doors.

If you’re tired of being a “doggie doorman,” a dog door lets your furry friend do their business whenever they like, day and night, without disturbing you and your family. For older dogs who may need to go to the bathroom more often, a dog door can be a welcome addition to your home. A dog door for wall use can also be used to provide access to a room that’s usually kept closed.

Sizes for Small Dog Doors – Custom Sizes Available

Unlike many of our competitors, we don’t just offer small, medium, and large sizes of dog doors, because not all “small dogs” are created equal.

What are Dog Kennel Doors and How Do They Work?

Our “small-medium” size is a great fit for most small dogs including Chihuahuas, Pomeranians, Papillons, and Yorkshire Terriers, and slightly larger small dogs like the Toy Fox Terrier and Miniature Pinschers. The “tall small medium” size may be more appropriate for your Pekingese, Pug, Miniature Poodle, and other breeds with longer legs. Depending on the width of your small dog, you may want to consider a medium dog door to accommodate them. We do not recommend the “small” size for any dog breeds (and only the smallest cats).

Pet door size is extremely important. While your four-legged friend might be able to “squeeze through” a dog door that’s a bit small for them, over time this can affect their health and well-being. A low-stress, perfectly sized dog door for your pooch is our mission. Do you need an extra small dog door? We also make custom sizes.

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.

Great Customer Service! I installed my Hale Pet Door back in early 2007. Finally in 2021 I needed to replace the flaps. I did and in the last week I noticed the inside flap hanging down. I took it out to see if it was just slipping and it wasn't. It was tearing. I emailed Hale Pet Door expressing my disappointment and they shipped me out new flaps at no charge! That is awesome customer service!! The dog door itself is awesome as well!!! Thank you for having great customer service especially when that seems overall to be on the decline!
