Carlson Pet Products Extra Wide Walk-Thru Gate with Pet Door
These gates are easy to use, very sturdy if installed properly and with the extensions will fit almost any opening.
If your dog is a "leaner" , tends to paw at things, or like our 5 month old Great Dane doesn't have working brakes yet, then definitely use the extra "mounting cups" for added strength.
The "small pet pass through" is perfect when our puppy decides that one of our cats really looks like it wants to "play" with him.
Great gate at a great price!

This Pet Gate is unbeatable, perfect!
This is the second gate that we purchased. We have cats & a dog so we need to keep their food areas apart. This gate is super easy to install and does not cause any damage. The swing door is fantastic for us to enter and exit while the small pet opening is purely perfect. The design blends seamlessly in our home. We highly recommend this product to others who require a gate...you'll love it!

Love the gates
We have three of these gates now and love them. Plus the value at Chewy.com can't be beat. We checked prices before ordering and found Chewy's the best! Fast service as well.

This pet gate is very sturdy, and well made. The reason I purchased gate was to keep the dogs from going upstairs, and to allow the cats upstairs through the small door in the gate. Unfortunately my dogs can fit through the gate easily, which defeated the whole idea of buying the gate. My dogs breeds are peekapoo, and cockapoo both around 25 pounds. I am still hoping to find a gate with a smaller cat door. The reason for the great rating is that this is a great quality gate for the price. Much less expensive on Chewy.com than anything I have seen in the pet stores.

Sturdy, easy assembly, great value
This item is well constructed. Sturdy, heavy duty hardware that tightens with just your hands & stays put.
The opening mechanism for the door works easily. It is just a great gate. What they have in Pittsburgh PA in the way of pet gates is substandard & pricey. This item arrived in 2 days,,,from the time I ordered it.
I did also order a dog toy,,and get this,,,,their customer service, they sent me an email saying, "the toy is not available, so rather that hold up your whole order, we will ship it later." Quality company all around, will recommend & deal with them in the future.

Very clever construction, quality product
We initially used one gate with included extensions in one normal size opening, in our home in in FL. Perfect result. Returning to a second home in MI we were challenged by two much larger openings. We actually used more additional extensions than recommended however it has worked fine. Our dog is small to medium and does not jump heavily against the gate allowing use of the 'pressure fastener' option to install vs. attaching into the walls.

This is the best puppy gate I have ever found
I have been through so many pet and baby gates over the years because they just don't last or fit right. I keep my bulldogs in my utility room where my washer and dryer are. It's a big room but the gates were never really sturdy enough since we had to open them at least twice a day. This gate is wonderful! I absolutely love it and my husband is impressed with it. It is so easy to use and looks natural in the doorway. In fact we are getting ready to order another one for the doorway at the top of our stairs so our new puppy cannot fall down the stairs if he is up there. I highly recommend this gate and if fact have referred friends to your website.

Small pet door is the best feature
We have 3 dogs and 6 cats, and keeping dogs from going upstairs where they think the best treats the world are (in the cat litter boxes - ugh! lol), while still allowing the cats to come and go is a challenge.
PROS: This does the trick. The cat door is perfect! It even has a little knob so that you can close it if you want to keep all pets out of an area at certain times, which seems like a nice feature.
Once you get the hang of it the gate it is very adjustable & will work even in places that have odd openings - we have it across an entry with a stair rail on one side and were able to adjust it so that the top of the gate is secured against the wall on one side and the wide stair rail spindle on the other, which is pretty impressive.
CONS: I would like the gate much better if the door swung in both directions. This is my biggest complaint.
I also would not call this a true one-handed operation. If you do not use the child safety part of the gate you are able to open and close it with one hand, but if you need to latch it properly there is no way this is one-handed.
The last thing I will mention is that, while the construction is good, I am not in love with the looks. It is very square and the some of the welds are sloppy. The baby gate I bought has slightly rounded edges, which is more aesthetically pleasing and all the welds are perfect. I also prefer the beige color of the baby gate to the stark white of this gate.
CONCLUSION: The cat door is a necessity in our home and this gate does work for that.
Also - I shopped around extensively and the prices on Chewy are impossible to beat and delivery was pretty quick.
Hope this info is helpful :)
