works great for our purpose
Phyllis from Cameron Park, CA– Verified Buyer
We needed a gate that kept the dog out but gave the cat access to his feeding and litter box areas. It fit our custom size doorway perfectly as it is adjustable/expandable. We did not need the expansion panel and just left it off. We did want the small pet door open at all times and tried tying it open with yarn but then it was in the way all the time and caused the larger gate door not to swing properly. So we just permanently removed the small pet door. The gate itself is well-built and sturdy. We did have a little trouble getting the wall mount holders adjusted tight enough but kept trying until we succeeded. Like this gate very much and would have given it 5 stars if not for the difficulty in adjusting the mounts.
Suits my needs

I previously purchased another gate for a different area in my home and I love it, but it doesn't have the small pet door I needed for the room I bought this gate for. I have a large Husky who is 10 months old and full of energy. I also have a much smaller, elderly Shiba Inu with arthritis who doesn't like to be picked on by the energetic pup. So, this was a great solution so my elderly girl can come and go as she pleases when the small pet door is open. The gate is beautiful and sturdy and works as described. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the measurements were larger than stated in the description, so I had to improvise to make it fit in my doorway. I is off by an inch on the measurements, so take heed if you have narrow doorways. Make sure you measure to be sure of the fit. I have no other complaints. This gate is also much less expensive than comparable brands.
Great product, matches description

I loved this gate and received it in two days. I ordered it as a replacement for a very old children's plastic gate that we had cut a hole in so our older cat didn't have to jump over it. We installed the new gate in a narrow hallway and used only the pressure mounted setup and it's very sturdy. We used a Velcro strip to hold the gate open all the time. It is actually better looking than pictured. To ensure the gate closes on it's own be sure it is level in the doorway or hallway. The design alone shows that Carlson really does know what pet owners want in a pet gate. I plan to order a second one soon.
Good quality but not so great for tiny dogs...
Trish from BOCA RATON, FL– Verified Buyer
I really like this gate...it's sturdy and the gate swings with ease...but be careful if you have a tiny dog like my little 5 pound Chihuahua. My door opening is 37" and this gate does stretch out to fit but there is a gap on both sides that my little one likes to stick her head through. I am so worried that she will get stuck. I want to keep the gate so I am trying to come up with something that will fit into the gap.
Not as wide as I thought

Love the gate and its design. Same Carlson quality. ( I have three other gates like this one from Carlson) BUT no extra pieces withorder to accommodate a wider opening. I also assumed it was the same height as the white gate.It's shorter 1-2. It's a bit pricey but well constructed, very sturdy.
Walk thru pet gate by Carlson
Rosie from Kenmore, NY– Verified Buyer
These gates are attractive, sturdy and easy to install. Only a screwdriver is required. It would be a five star gate instead of four if it were just a bit taller. It took my Standard Poodle pup just 3 days to learn to climb over by placing a hind foot on the horizontal pet door bar. If the gates were 4 taller and had no tiny pet door, they would be perfect.
Perfect for separating large animals from small ones
Patti from California– Verified Buyer
It has great. It worked out extremely well and we like it. It keeps my big dogs out and my little ones can go through to eat. It is lower than other pet gates. I would suggest to check dimensions before buying. We have basset hounds, so it is fine for us. It is perfect for separating large dogs from small ones or cats from dogs.
Gets the job done!

I needed a self closing gate because the teenagers in the house would forget to close the other one. It was easy to put together and took about 15 minutes to get the self closing action to work. The pet door is about the same size as other pet doors- my cats can get through it, but so can the sheltie. I had to pit a rubber band and make the pet door half the size to keep the sheltie out.

We purchased two of these, and they look great. Keeping our two dogs and three cats happy, not to mention their mom. Easy to open and the little door allows the cats to enter and exit when they please.
Laura from Denver, CO– Verified Buyer
This door really fit my needs. It allows my kitty to have access to his food while keeping my dogs out. It was easy to install and the gate is easy to open for me to get in and out. I would definitely recommend.
