Gun Dog Door. Like jefflab5 said - heavy duty. There was an earlier thread on dog doors and someone who also had the Gun Dog Doors mentioned putting a piece of rubber along the dog edge to quiet the slam of the door as it closed.

Is the "Gun Dog Door" suitable to put in the door of your home when you live in a climate that reaches -20 and 30 mph winds or more?

Ann,

The door flap is a heavy acrylic panel versus the plastic "mat" version you see on some of the other doors. As well, it is hinged with very strong springs so the dog does need to push on the flap to enter or exit. Check out their website at www.gundogdoorhouse.com

I did a search for this thread about quieting the door but cold not find it. Do you remember how they did it?

Ooops .... thanks Jeff! You are correct on the website address.

As to the comment on adding the weatherstripping I found the comment on the thread - "dog kennel doors, which are best?"

Well - it looks like they just use these on the kennel building or on doghouses. I want to use it on MY house, and not sure it is properly insulated for that. It looks like it would be like having a single pane window.
