Why Install a Pet Door in a Basement Window?

Dragon Pet Doors are made for lots of different installation locations, including windows. A basement window is a great place to install a pet door. It allows your pet the freedom to come and go as they please, freeing up your time spent letting them out constantly.

A basement window pet door is also a great option if you’re gone most of the day and want your pet to go outside freely, but you’re also worried about a pet door that leads right into the house. Sometimes, the basement window is the only place you have to install a pet door, and it’s a great option too!

Seeing as you can lock the door from the basement into the house, a pet door for basement windows provides a buffer. This is perfect for primarily outdoor cats who need to come in for food and water. Pet doors for windows are the perfect option for those who don’t want to cut a hole into their door or wall (bonus: they’re also great for rentals and vacation homes).

Vinyl Windows:
