Plastic Shield for Screen Door for Dog

We travel with our small dog. When the weather is nice we leave the door open and close the screen door. He sits by the door and watches the birds and squirrels outside. When he gets excited he will paw at the screen. It was just a matter of time before he would have ripped it. I went to Lowes and got a thin piece of clear plastic sheet and cut it to fit on the inside of the screen door. There are nice channels on the bottom and sides for it to fit into. Slides right in and is just tall enough to let him still see out and smell the outside. It's tall enough that he is not likely to tear the screen door but leaves most of the screen area open for a breeze.

Suz,

Great mod!

On our first tt (got it from my grandparents) my grandpa has mounted an actual screen protector on the door because of taking the cat and dog.

Our Shepherd doesn't mess with the screen at all but when my daughter camps with us she brings her Yorkie and that little girl is a screen killer! I will look at doing your mod - Thanks!!

We upgraded to the Lexon product at Lowes. It is a little more $$$ but has held up well.

Have the same issue with the pups so will look into a sheet of lexon. But now the screen door is bent. The gap lets the bugs in. Anyone have a fix for that?

Not sure if your door is bent in a particular place or just warped from top to bottom or side to side. Ours was warped a bit so that one corner did not seal correctly. One corner on bottom and opposite corner on top. I noticed it when were taking delivery and pointed it out to the service tech. He was able to give it a couple of good twists from top to bottom and it straightened out. I've adjusted a bit more since. It's a thin aluminum frame so not hard to twist them a bit and make them square and flat. I suggest being very careful - I suspect it would not be hard to put too much pressure on it and have it really bend or collapse/kink in a spot.

The gap is the width. Bending doesnt help. Maybe an insulation strip? Anyone have this problem?
