    Default Dog door

    We just fenced in our yard and want to put in a dog door for him but I can't find one that is wide enough for his shoulders.
    has anybody else had luck with one and if so could you point me in the right direction.

    He would fit through a door for a large dog-but he should not have too much freedom, as an English Bulldog can not take much heat, and they do not have the sense to
    stay out of the sun. Mine would lay out in the sun until they cooked! I have a doggy door but never installed it for that reason. I would not recommend a doggy door for an EBD. @Walter323 I think most "owners" would agree.............

    Walter actually isn't a big fan of the sun and seeks out the shade whenever possible. We have 3 large shade trees in our back yard as well as a kiddy pool for him.
    He also wouldn't have free access to go outside at all times, just when we are home.

    In that case a door for a large dog should work for him. Measure his shoulder width and the door. It should work fine. @Walter323
    some people do not realize about giving them freedom, and the sun.

    We had an extra-large door installed in our wall when we built our house… it was for a boxer and a bulldog. BUT my boxer got a neck spur from it because she would run thru like gang-busters… and the bulldogs never seemed to care for it. I want to know WHEN they go outside so honestly I didn't think it was worth the trouble.

    Doggie doors and bullies, don't go together. It always makes me nervous when people want to use them. It only takes one time to forget they are outside and 1) they get stolen, or 2) they die of heat stroke. So if you put in one, be very careful and keep an eye on them.

    We have a large from Lowes. It is on our slider to our deck and the can only go out when we are home. Banks is not good with regulating herself so we have to keep close watch... Our Frenchie, Cheli does a real good job of regulating... Comes in when he gets hot or eats ice from a bowl.
