Dog doors for sliders are offered in various height adjustment ranges and the single most important problem is to be sure that your track height is in the adjustment range of the sliding glass door dog door you're considering. You measure inside the sliding glass door track, the very top to the very bottom. When measuring, don't do it all at once. If you do, the top of the tape will be curving and hard to read where it ends. Instead, measure inside the top track down to a convenient height--say 2 feet--and make a pencil line. Then measure up from the bottom track to that line and add. This method is extremely accurate. Height adjustment ranges will be shown on the product page for each of these sliding door dog doors.

Endura Flap Thermo Panel 3e Sliding Glass Dog Door - Pet Doors
The Hale In-Glass door is a pet door sold for installation in a glass window. We have one to fit , and another for . With the single pane version you get a pet door frame with a 3/16" slot on the top and side, and a 3/16" edge on the other two sides where it plugs into the frame. On the double pane glass model, you get is the pet door, "compensating strips" which attach the female end of the pet door frame to the female end of the door frame, and a buildout. The buildout is a piece of framing that goes between the glass and the pet door frame, to build it out to the thickness of a regular door. We are using a pet door for a regular door in this case, so it was made to fit a normal 1 3/4" thick door. So if your glass is 1" thick, we would provide the door along with a 3/4" buildout so that the pet door would fit correctly. We can avoid the build out by cutting the pet door frame down to fit the glass. I prefer this option because it looks better and it fits a lot more flush against the window itself. The outside frame only sticks out about 3/16", so you can usually open the slider all the way with the pet door installed. With the buildout installed on the inside of the door the situation would be the same, but you are looking at the buildout. If you put the buildout on the outside of the door, it's less noticeable, but adds enough thickness that you probably won't be able to open the door all the way. The downside to having the pet door cut to fit the glass is that it is then considered a custom order and is non-refundable. The installation of this pet door will need to be done by a local glass company, and it is usually fairly expensive. For dual pane glass installations, it is usually north of $1000 for the glass work alone, and then factor in the price of the pet door itself. One problem with these doors for the taller dogs is the rise. You can't choose to put the pet door higher in this case, it goes in a notch in the glass in the bottom corner, so the pet door flap will be roughly 1.5" or 2" above the sliding door frame. This door uses the same secure locking cover as the Hale Panel.
