Endura Flap wall mount doggie door review

If you are looking for a dog door for a wall installation, I highly recommend the Endura Flap Wall Mount Dog Door. My Endura Flap arrived perfectly and all parts were packaged carefully. As with any installation like this where you are cutting into a wall, and for safety reasons, we had our friend and contractor do the installation for us.

As you can see from the photo above it looks like there are two parts to the door, however, there are actually three. You have the main portion of the door which includes two parts (you can see that below in the photos below during the installation). One part of the door gets installed into the wall inside your home, the other part gets installed outside. Basically it is like a sandwich each portion of the door including it’s own flap. You also have the door cover/lock pictured on the left. This slides over the door on the inside of your home when you don’t want the door used.

Installation: Installation went smoothly, instructions are clear and easy to follow. See photos and captions below for full installation review.

Tip: When sizing and cutting your wall go slightly smaller than the instructions provided. This was the only problem we came across, We ended up with a slightly larger opening than needed. Keep it in mind that you can always make it bigger later.

Our dog kennel is temporary and this door can go into any wall for outside access. After experiencing numerous times where our dogs escaped from our yard, we decided to build this kennel for their safety and the safety of others, until we come up with the funds to install a new fence. Our rail and mesh fencing was allowing our dogs to lift the mesh and romp through the neighborhood. This all started after our old mailman retired and Frankie acquired a dislike for our new mailman.

Training your dog(s) how to use the Endura Flap Wall Mount Dog Door: 

Training our dogs took to use the door confidently on their own took about a week. We didn’t use any treats but they are recommended if your dog has a problem.

 We started out by first by opening the door for them from the inside so they could see outside. Angie our larger dog was the first one to learn how to use the door. Frankie tagged along on Angie’s heels at first. He was more reluctant because to open the door for two reason, one he is lazy, and two, he hates using any part of his face/head for anything. It took Frankie a few more days to learn how to use the door on his own. He figured out, if  he pushes the door at the side instead of head-on, he doesn’t have to work as hard to open the door. Now he freely goes in and out without Angie.

We are very happy with the door and the installation process was a breeze. We couldn’t be happier and our dogs are more confident and have more freedom now. A big thank you goes out to Pet Doors.com!

  1. It really does look easy. We have a cut opening with a plastic flap in to their shed outside to their kennel but this would be a lot nicer.

  2. How Super is this! Angie looks like she enjoys it and it seems like a well made product. I would have to have someone stall this for me if I ever need it because we are not handy at all.

  3. That looks easy! If the cats wouldn’t use it, it would be great for the dog. I have thought about putting one in the room for the cat’s litter box!

  4. We have considered getting a doggy door, but had no idea you could put them in the wall! We aren’t usually gone very often, but sometimes we just need a few extra hours and this would let us not have to worry about the dogs being uncomfortable. Although I would worry about coming home and finding stray cats in my house LOL

    • You have great kid! My son is more involved now with letting them out. When it came to the regular door he couldn’t get the dogs to listen leaving him frustrated. Now the are eager to go out and he has no problems.
