I have a back room, i call it the laundry room. It is a big room, probably 30 ft long by 8 foot wide. The whole bottom half of this room is cinder block. Top half has dry wall and any electrical work.
What I would LOVE to do, is put a small door in for the dogs to go in and out of. I have 3 dogs and a fenced in side yard. Currently, they go in and out of my dining room door. OMG!!! now that fall came around, my house is destroyed with mud, leaves dragged in, wet paws. It's a mess! I would like to put in something in the back room, that I can open and close to allow the dogs in and out. I do not want a doggie door, simply because I may need them to stay out if strangers (to them) are over. ANY ideas on how I would begin this project, what type of 'door' I could put in, and what would be easiest for breaking through the block. I am imagining 3 blocks wide, by at least 3 blocks high for removal. I have dobermans. Please let me know, honestly, if this is just a ;nutty idea' lol. I know that if I could do it, it would make my life SOOOO much easier!! :) I've uploaded a picture of the wall. Thanks in advance for any help/ideas.

This is doable. My friend was in a similar dilemma. I know she got a product to her liking for her Shepherd. I would recommend you have a look at petdoors.com to have a general idea of the products and the process.Pay heed to the dos and don'ts if you plan to do it yourself. Else outsource it to a professional.
