What happens when you sell pet doors for over 30 years? You learn more about pet doors than you ever thought was possible and, in the meantime, you create a website that explains everything. That’s, we are confident you won’t be able to find anyone who knows more about doggy doors than we do; we have seen everything and answered just about every question possible.
At, we love pets. We love dogs so much that several are official members of our staff. Every day is a “Bring your dog” day at and this allows us to constantly test our products with real puppy expertise. As if 5 office dogs were enough, we also have Bruno, our pet door simulator that can open and close a flap over 10,000 times per day.
The company that eventually became started in 1976 and has made over 500,000 dogs happy and owners liberated. We are located in San Luis Obispo, California which is definitely a dog lover town!
