Forum Title: Glass patio doors require dog door
I have double exterior doors leading to my deck with full length glass inserts in both. I am trying to find a way to get a door door in there somehow. Can I replace the glass insert with something solid that I can put the dog door into? or does anyone have any good ideas on the easiest way to get this done.

Some pics might help. In the meantime, are the windows still operational?

Yes you can replace the glass with plywood of equal thickness, but this has got to be one of the worst ideas I have ever heard of.

I can appreciate your plight having two high energy dogs myself, along with the two glass patio doors leading out onto our deck and backyard. My wife and I looked into potential options for dog doors, but given the fact that the two sliding glass patio doors are the only access to the backyard we abandoned our search. I've accepted the fact that I am and will always be the doorman. Wasn't interested in cutting out the siding, framing a doorway, installing an expensive exterior door and cutting it apart to allow for a dog door. Which I have to assume would be one of the only solutions. On top of that, I want control over my dogs in terms of when they can/can't have access to the backyard.
