15X Better than Energy Star Standards
10X Better than California Standards


SHIELD cat and dog doors by Freedom Pet Pass have been independently tested and confirmed to be 15X better at keeping outside air from infiltrating your home than US Energy Star requirements for human doors and 10X better than California Title 24 requirements.

DoubleMag Technology

The airtight seal that protects your home from even the worst weather.

DoubleMag Blocks Extreme Winds


Airtight Seal Blocks Intense Winds

Check out this video. We point a leaf blower directly at a SHIELD by Freedom Pet Pass pet door and turn it on high speed to see if any air makes it through the DoubleMag seal.

According to Wikipedia, leaf blowers can generate wind speeds of 140 – 270 mph. Even under those extreme conditions, no air gets through the seal to affect the flame… until the seal is broken, then watch how violent the wind actually is!

Our pet doors protect your home from outside air intrusion, even under extreme conditions like these.

The Pet Door Built for California Weather

SHIELD pet doors are engineered from the ground up to stand up to the worst heat, wind, cold, and rain.

Insulated Flap Seals Out Heat and Cold

Thermal Performance you Can See

Most pet doors, like the “best selling” dog door shown on the left of FLIR thermal image, do nothing but let cold into your home. The flap leaks, and the metal frame conducts the hot and cold outside temperatures right into your house.

SHIELD by Freedom Pet Pass doors are engineered from the ground up to keep extreme temperatures outside where they belong. The insulated frame performs better than most doors, the airtight seal on the insulated flap doesn’t let a wisp of outside air through. You can see the difference with a thermal camera, and you can feel it in your home.

Made in the USA

SHIELD manufactures our cat and dog doors in the USA with American-made raw materials.

Proudly Made in Bay City, MI

Freedom Pet Pass doors are manufactured in our production facility in Bay City, MI. As Michiganders, we know how cruddy the weather can get, and we focus on providing the highest-quality, most energy-efficient doors available on the market.

If you ever need to talk with us, you’ll be able to speak with a knowledgeable representative in the US – neither our production nor our customer service is “offshored”.

Local Sourcing

Over 98% of the value of SHIELD pet doors originates from the US, with over 90% coming from within 150 miles of Bay City, MI. We specifically select vendors and raw materials that are as close to us as possible to minimize transportation impacts and to support our fellow local businesses.

Zero Drafts

The DoubleMag™ flap system gives an airtight seal that independent laboratory testing has shown to be 15X better than the air leakage requirements for Energy Star certified human doors.

Insulated Flaps

The thick, thermally-insulated SHIELD flap works perfectly from -40° to 130°. Combined with the airtight DoubleMag seal, it keeps hot or cold outside air where it belongs.

Lab-Certified

Other doors “claim” to be energy efficient. We prove it with independent lab testing using the same protocols required for Energy Star certification for windows and doors.

Fantastic Doors and Customer Service

“Can’t speak highly enough about these doors…I’ve got two and wouldn’t be without. My oldest door has been exposed to the harshest South Texas weather for almost 5 years. It’s never blown open and still looks brand new. They are a bit pricey but worth every penny – I’ll never look for another brand dog door and that’s assuming I ever need another one.

I can’t speak highly enough about the door, the quality, or the customer service. Love our door and tell everyone about it. I’m an Air Force pilot and we have guys moving through all the time. I think I’m responsible for selling about 15 doors”
