Dog door insert for sliding doors

Hello,

I want my dog to go to the balcony as often as she wants, winter and summer. We have a sliding glass door and I need a solution without having to modify the existing door. This insert door looks like what I need: https://www.amazon.com/PetSafe-Freed.../dp/B005CO91TK

Does anyone know where I can order an insert door like this? Or what is the word to search for it.

Thanks

I contacted them two years ago and they said it is only sold in US.
The doors they have in Europe are these: https://store.intl.petsafe.net/en-ch/doors
and my favorite is still not listed.

Re: Dog door insert for sliding doors

Ebay throws up this:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PetSafe-D...#shpCntId#shId

I think it's the same ?

$54 for the product and nearly the same for the shipping charges but it does say it ships to CH at least.

Never seen these before, very neat little solution

No, I couldn't find a solution. Another idea is to replace the door with an automatic door which opens when someone walks towards it. But it would probably cost something like 50k here..

Re: Dog door insert for sliding doors

Not the most energy efficient choice, but if your balcony is secure (someone can’t climb onto it, dog can’t escape), just open the door wide enough for the dog to go in and out. It’s what we’ve done for several years.

Yes, I've seen that done with a heavy felt curtain hung across the gap. That helped to keep in the warmth, but the dog could push past it comfortably.

Wooden plank with a hole cut for a cat/dog door.

Easy.
