    Not happening. Even in you COULD cut out the bump from an excited pet will be a hazard and dangerous.

    I would have the glass cut in half, install a plywood bottom panel and have the dogdoor installed in that.

    I have seen where pet doors were installed through the wall, next to a door.

    Unfortunately, the short answer is no. Why? Because those aren't panes in your door. The door has one (probably double-pane thermal) window in it that has a decorative lattice attached on the outside to make it look like it has 15 panes. You can purchase a 9 pane door with a solid bottom (like we did) and set a dog door in the bottom. If you decide to cut through the wall, remember that is a permanent change and I hope you know where the studs, wiring and pipes run before you do.

    You could install it in the wall next to the door. I did this when I lived in Phoenix and installed it next to an arcadia door. Worked just fine when we put a dog house on the outside. I've seen this done in other homes out there with arcadia doors.

    You would have to remove the glass, have it cut to allow for a doggy door, and then reinstall. Or, you could replace the door and get one more doggy door friendly.
