Question by revilo: What are your experiences with a patio panel dog door?
I have a 95 pound Bouvier. I am thinking of installing a patio door panel style dog door. How easy, difficult is it to install? Effect on energy consumption. Ease of training and or use for pet. any comments, etc are welcome. Thanks!

I had one for a cat, but the product is similar, it worked well and was easy to install (the top was spring loaded so it automatically fit any door). However it certainly let in more cold/hot air both through the panel and especially through the door itself.
Also I would have serious concerns about using it at ground level since there was no good way to lock it in place.
My other major annoyance was that you had to take it out every time you wanted to actually exit the door.
