"I you haven't purchased this already I would suggest purchasing the pet safe flap. its battery operated so you just need a competent person to drill the hole for you.

If have already brought the pet walk I would suggest a trained electrician for the electrics and a handyman to cut the wall."

"If the electricity connection is simply a plug in, then any competent handyman willing to do the job can do so, if you need wiring you will need a spark/electrician to do the wiring legally/safely."

Would definitely need to be a qualified or time served builder, this is not a job for the handy man, the electrical work would be the easy part. It's getting the right size hole cut into the masonry work that will cost just a bit more than usual."

"No need for electricity connection as they are typically only battery powered. Generally, it's installed into pvc or double glazed door."

"I would suggest a builder with electrical experience would be your best option. If you're going through a cavity wall you will need to seal the cavity before installation."
