Doggie Door Designs Needed/Wanted
My white boxer, Lilly, is in need of a doggie door so she can come and go while I am at work. The shop will be heated, Indiana does get quite cold at times and don't want a door that allows cold draft/cold air in after spending the time and money on insulation. All I see at the stores for a lot of money is a cheap piece of plastic with a magnet at the bottom. Surely there is something better out there. Have spent a couple of hours googling doggie door designs and really haven't come up with anything unless I want to spend anywhere from 469.00 to 700.00!!!
Now, when I got Lilly, she had a bump on her back. It has never gone away or gotten larger. So don't want to irritate that by having a top hinge door that would drag over that bump daily. So am either thinking a pair of doors that hinge from each side and come together in the middle, or swings from one side only.
Problems I am encountering:
1. Seals for draft control.
2. Self closing (each and every time!)
3. Doesn't let cold air in.
4. Swings both directions.
5. Closes from both directions.
6. Doesn't let my heat out.
So, any ideas? Any suggestions? Any experience?? Help Lilly please.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
