I have a privacy fence; won't placing a Pet Peek in the fence ruin my privacy?
A. The Pet Peek is usually installed 24-36 inches from the ground, depending upon height of the dog. Dog's have a clear view though the Peek from the inside, looking in from the outside is difficult.
Where I live, the weather goes below zero in the winter months. Will my Pet Peeks crack in cold weather?
A. We have received no reports about cracking Pet Peeks.
My dog enjoys meeting new people and other dogs. I'm concerned that he might break through the Peek in his enthusiasm. Have dogs escaped by breaking through a Peek?
A. Since Pet Peeks came on the market in 2007, there has not been (to our knowledge) one escapee. The Pet Peeks are 3/16 inch clear acrylic with a 1 ¼ inch flange, and are installed with 4, 1 ½ inch Step Bolts, which are included in the package. Numerous tests of the product's durability, including being hit with a hammer, did not produce enough damage that would allow a dog to escape.
How do I clean my dog’s window?
A. A simple spray with your garden hose will do the job.
Will dog claws scratch the Pet Peek?
A. Some small breeds will put their paws in the dome and scratch at it. Yes, this will scratch the dome, however it will not limit viewing or durability.
What tools will I need to install my Pet Peeks?
A. You will need safety glasses, a metal tape measure, a pencil, a circle saw and drill. All installation and tools needed information are included when you purchase a Pet Peek.
What will my neighbor think if I install a Pet Peek in the fence?
A. You should NOT install into a fence that is shared with a neighbor, without WRITTEN PERMISSION. Place Peeks on any side of your fence that is NOT SHARED, unless you receive WRITTEN PERMISSION from that neighbor.
Best places to install without conflict:
1. Front of your fence
2. Side fencing on corner lots
4. Any portion of your shared fence for which you have received written permission to do so.
I live where there is a Home Owners Association. Do I need the association's approval before I install?
A. Yes. SIGNED PERMISSION IN WRITING.
Do Pet Peeks have any other uses beyond fences?
A. So glad you ask! The Pet Peek window has been used successfully in doghouses. Would you want to live in a house with no windows? Dog kennels, dog runs, and even playhouses for children are a few installation ideas. Landscapers, Interior Designers, and Exhibitors have all used the Pet Peek in various ways. The Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. used a Pet Peek in the Man on the Moon display. Just use your imagination.
How safe are Pet Peeks?
A. Any person or animal on the outside of a Pet Peek installed in a fence cannot touch the dog behind the fence. Likewise, the dog on the inside of the fence looking out cannot be touched or harmed by someone on the outside. It is safe for those on both sides of a fence.
Do you have any other Peek sizes?
A. Not at this time.
What materials can I install the Pet Peeks into?
A. Wood panel fencing, vinyl fencing, wood and dry wall. Depth of the mounting surface should be measured for best placement. The Pet Peek domes are 5 inches deep.
If I want to remove the Pet Peek from my fence, will it ruin the fence?
A. No. You would just have to replace the panels that were cut.
