    I have used a small curtain rod (or nails) to hang up heavy fabric above & over the doggie door. My dog still finds her way under and through.

    I used an old car floor mat. A small one that fits in floor board of a small car. You can get them at Walmart. Get the ones that don't have the grippers on the back side. Or you can use a dog food mat. Cut to size.

    We made a tunnel on the outside with wood, having 2 sides and a top. Nailed it together, painted it and it worked wonderful stopped the wind from blowing to the flap. We did add some trim to make it look much better on the outside as well as supports on the inside.

    I have a similar problem and I've been considering using Velcro around the inside frame of the doggie door to attach a quilted curtain that will open for pet but will keep out the cold. I'll let you know if it works.

    I put a strip of Velcro across the top of the doggie door, then hung a piece of heavy duty material on it. I did this on both sides. Then I hung a curtain rod and put two layers of old curtains I made on the rod. I pinned the second layer on top of the first. Four dogs, one is blind, and a pot belly pig, they all use it! Last year I used a thermal lined curtain, I think that worked better.

    Inside you could add track on three sides and slide a wood or metal door down to close the opening at night. You can staple or hot glue some quilted fabric or leather to a lath strip and and hang it on the door with Command Hooks velcro type hangers.

    If it is on a metal door, try putting magnetic tape down the sides and across the bottom. Your dog can open it easily when coming in and it will seal automatically. I'm pretty sure the dog will also be able to get out just as easily. Magnetic tape is pliable. Good Luck!

    We used a old rug. Cut it in fat strips and attached on the inside.

    I bought heavy vinyl ribbed material comes in a roll at home depot. Cut thick strips to cover dog door, then framed it all with molding. Works great ! Been doing this for years. Change the flaps every year :)
