When measuring for a through wall dog door, or a door mount dog door There are a couple measurements to keep in mind:
* Pet Opening/Flap Size: This is the opening your pet will passthrough to go inside or outside. Measured by the visible width and height of the flap, in inches. You will want enough clearance on all sides to go comfortably through the wall. The Golden Rule for measuring for a pet door is: The top of the opening should be 2 inches above the pets shoulder and the bottom of the door should be at least an inch below the pet's elbow.
* Step Over Rise: This is the distance from the bottom of the Pet Opening to the ground. This very important when looking for a small pet door. The distance of the Step Over Rise should be shorter than the length of your pets elbow to the ground.
* Rough Cut: This is the actual hole in the wall that you will cut. Not this will always be slightly larger than the pet opening If you wish to test the opening you can cut a hole in a piece of cardboard and place it in an open doorway.
