Introduction: Protect Your Screen Door From Your Dog.
I wanted to come up with a protection screen to mount over the regular sliding screen door. My new dog was tearing holes and sometimes pushing right through the screen.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Measure
Measure the width of the screen door, and measure how high your dog could push on the screen. This way you can make your protection screen big enough.
Step 2: Supplies
1/2 x 2 inch wood. Metal garden fence material.
Right angle picture frame bracing. Screws.
Step 3: Put It All Together
Make a simple frame using your wood, make sure to place a support piece in the center, so that when you're dog pushes on the protection screen it will not bow in the center. Mount metal garden fence material to your frame with picture frame bracing. Some of the right angel pieces I had to cut in order to secure to center section of the metal screen material.
Step 4: Mouting Protection Screen to Your Screen Door.
Your screen door should have a metal lip that should give you just enough metal for you to attach your protection screen. First drill a pilot hole through the lip, then screw your protection screen to the screen door. If you measured right at the beginning it should fit right in. Sence I made my protection screen I have not had to fix my screen sence. My dogre can push on it all she wants without damaging the screen.
