One of the most popular pet door installations is for sliding glass patio pet doors. There are several types and styles from which to choose covering a wide range of quality and features. The Ideal Fast Fit patio pet door is an inexpensive solution providing reasonable strength, security and insulation. The Patio Pacific Thermo Panel IIIe sliding glass insert with Endura flap is the best choice for a well insulated manual patio pet door. The ultimate solution is the Power Pet Fully Automatic dual e-glass patio pet door which provides the highest level of energy efficiency, security and convenience with zero draft to remain air tight in hurricane force winds. Here we have provided a complete selection of quality pet doors for sliding glass door installation. Here you are sure to find the ideal patio pet door to meet your needs and your budget.
Dog and cat doors for sliding glass installation consist of a patio panel insert that fits into your sliding glass door track. A spring loaded section at the top of the insert slides up to fit snuggly against the top of your track. The patio door insert has a built in dog door or cat door. DIY installation is typically very easy with these types of pet doors.
At the economical end of the patio pet door spectrum is the Ideal Fast Fit, one of the most popular sliding glass pet door models. These are available in small, medium, large, extra large, and super large flap sizes, in heights of regular, shorty and extra-tall. The insert panel itself is made from a ½" aluminum extrusion with a single pane tempered glass panel installed. There is a weather stripping kit provided and a draft stopper strip that keeps air from leaking in through the back side of what will now be a partially opened sliding glass door when it closes against the Fast Fit insert.
The Ideal Pet, Modular sliding glass pet doors are a step up from the Fast Fit series. They are built from a slightly heavier 5/8" aluminum extrusion and come in two halves that make shipping a lot less expensive and the package easier to handle. The top and bottom halves assemble together easily during installation. This door is a little stronger and a little more expensive than the Fast Fit line.
Ideal Pet Products also makes a high quality patio pet door insert for vinyl patio doors. The VIP is made from a much heavier 1½" thick vinyl extrusion that nicely matches most vinyl patio doors. Sizes of the VIP line are more limited including cat flap, medium, and extra large. The medium and extra large include Ideal's "Ultra-Flex" dog door that is a better sealed flap than a standard PVC flexible flap. Heights are regular and extra tall. The short height is unnecessary for most vinyl patio doors.

Our friends at Patio Pacific make some very nice patio pet doors including the Endura Quick Panel III and the Endura Thermo Panel III-e. Both have a nice, heavy-duty ¾" aluminum extrusion and feature the award winning Endura flap. Except for the Power Pet door, the Endura flap is, in our opinion, the best sealed dog door flap. It does leak a little air at the bottom but, all other manual flaps leak more. The Quick Panel III comes with a single pane, tempered glass panel while the better insulated Thermo Panel III-e uses double pane, energy efficient "Low e" glass. Both are a top-of-the-line choice in a patio dog door.
