Extra large doors for extra large dogs

Hercules, the 2010 heaviest dog in the world, is an
English Mastiff weighing in at 282 lbs.

Many dog breeds grow to imposing sizes, like the Great Dane, St Bernard, Irish Wolfhound, and Newfoundland, to name a few. Many of these dogs can exceed 200 lbs and have a shoulder height of three feet or more. 

Traditionally, these dogs have been confined to waiting until their human has the time to open the front door.

It has been nearly impossible to find a pet door big enough to accommodate the extra large dog breeds, and to complicate things, the sheer power with which these dogs hit a door when they come running can tear a traditional pet door apart.

The PlexiDor extra large is designed to take a beating. All PlexiDor pet door frames are engineered with hardened aluminum that won't bend, rust, crack, or warp. The saloon style panels are made of a hardened, shatter-resistant acrylic and seals to the frame with industrial grade weather stripping.

On the extra large door, the panels are equipped with factory installed aluminum trim to protect them from chewing and to provide added strength to the entire door.

The doors can be mounted in a standard household door or through a wall, and they are available in three colors: silver, white, or bronze. Every door comes with lock, key, and a steel security plate.

  1. I've always wondered if people with XL dogs could use a dog door.

    1. Our doors work for dogs up to approximately 220 lbs. I don't think Hercules on the picture could use one, lol, he's so big that he needs a human-size door. =)

  2. Thanks for this information. I have an Irish Wolfhound and I'm wondering if the Plexidor will be appropriate for him? With his bulk and height, I think it would take some portion of our house's wall just to accommodate the pet door, lol! That being said, I love my big breed, since I know that often, these larger dogs have shorter lifespans. He has been with me for 3 years and some of the site I've been to gave information that at least, 7 years will be the likely lifespan of my dog.
