I want to install a pet door to allow my dog to let herself out. The door would run out onto a deck attached to the back of the house. On the wall connected to the deck, I have a sliding glass door and enough wall space that the pet door could be located in a bunch of different situations. So the question is, what would be the preferred location/installing method?
- In the sliding glass door itself? (Seems difficult if not impossible)
- In the wall next to the door, between studs? (Cutting through drywall, insulation, and the exterior wall/siding)
- In the wall centered on a stud? (Not sure how much this would differ from option 2)
Once the hole is made, would you frame around it? Do they sell pet door designed for exactly this (vs placing in an existing metal or wood door)?
