Big household hardware chains are great for a variety of needs. You can get lost in their aisles looking at storage inspiration or smart lighting power, for instance. However, when it comes to options for things related to your pets, it’s not always easy to find the right solution. Products tend to come in standard sizes, and DIY instructions often involve permanent modification of your home, which isn’t possible for renters.

Many of us don’t have the time or capability to DIY in the first place, not to mention the budget for many big brand products. These can be overpriced as it is, but when you factor in the risk of buying the wrong size, or a faulty installation, the cost of fixing mistakes can really add up!

Who are Patio Link?

Thankfully, Patio Link offer an alternative solution that will save you time, money, and trouble!

Back in 2000, Ivan and his family were renting their home and needed a solution for their little dog, Billie. After searching for ways to provide a doggy door for Billie without cutting through their glass sliding door or buying a new one, Ivan realised there were no options for renters.
This is what lead Ivan to create Australia’s original custom pet door insert company – Patio Link! Providing homes all across the country with an affordable doggy door option that won’t do any damage to rental properties, Patio Link is the best way to accommodate the needs of our furry family members.

With the goal of making this process as easy as possible for pet owners, the company provides friendly, accessible customer service, along with all the instructions and tutorials you could need!

Pet door inserts – the perfect solution

We all know our pets are smart, so being locked up can have a negative impact on their mental health. Whether you’re away for long periods or have a busy schedule, give your pet the freedom to come and go from the house as they please. Whatever your situation, your pet will be grateful for the added independence and mental stimulation.

Custom inserts can also be bought for windows, so your cats can have private, fully lockable access points as well!

What makes these inserts perfect for renters is their temporary nature. Patio Link’s pet door is ideal for patio and sliding doors, as it can be fitted into the existing frame without moderation. When it’s time to move, they can be easily removed and taken with you. This means your new insert is guaranteed to last for its full 10 year warranty, and you’re guaranteed to have a pet door wherever you move!

Sizing and installation

There’s no need to plan out the products you need and spend all day installing a permenant dog door. When you shop with Patio Link, your pet door solution couldn’t be simpler.

No matter what your requirements, the team at Patio Link will help you buy the right size pet door. For the size of your dog, they have easy to follow instructions, including popular dog breeds as examples – from small sized breeds like a whippet, to large sized breeds like a great dane.

For the size of the frame, you will need to measure your glass sliding door as carefully as possible. Each insert has a panel which can be moved up or down by 10cm, so they can be adjusted to suit custom sized doors. But if you need extra sizing advice, simply email photos of your door, including the bottom track, to sales@patiolink.com.au.

The one piece aluminium construction is secure, and installation can take as little as five minutes! However, if you’re unable to DIY, Patio Link are happy to supply the number of a handyman in your area. So, don’t stress about all the steps and costs of installing a pet door. Go for a simple, long-lasting solution with Patio Link!
