I have a dog that lets itself in through an external door. Is there a door closer that I could easily activate in winter (when I would like the door to close after the dog comes in) but which could be set to leave the door free in summer?

There are two ways of tackling this, depending on your budget.  The “deluxe” solution would be to use an electro-magnetic door closer (the Geze TS4000 EFS) with a PSU, the current to which would be switched ON in summer, so the door can free swing.  In winter you switch the power OFF and the door closer will operate to close the door after use.  The “economy” solution would be to go for a standard domestic overhead door closer, like the Eurospec F2003 (or have a look at our special offers page) and then when summer comes around simply remove the arm from the closer, replacing it in the winter when you want the unit to work.

Which door closers – our doors are hardwood 45mm x 840mm x 1981mm, we are not sure if Geze TS1000 will be sufficient or if we will need Geze TS1500. Please could you advise?

The TS1000 door closers are perfectly adequate to cope with fire rated doors up to 900mm wide.  Geze TS1500‘s are able to cope with a wider range of door sizes, and are a little more attractive to look at.  The Eurospec F2003 is another suitable choice, as is the Briton 121.CE.

Looking for a light weight indoor door closer.

For an economical domestic door closer, we would recommend a Eurospec F2003 or Eurospec T2024 which has the advantage of being able to be set at power size 2, which is better for lighter, narrower doors.

Which door closer do I need to ensure an internal door at home closes right up shut to stop a cat getting in to the hamsters?

It would be best to go for an overhead door closer with latching action (which controls the last few degrees of the closing, and is the bit you want to be sure is working right).  The lowest price one we do is the Eurospec F2003 at power size 3, which is rather strong for a domestic door, but door closers which have adjustable power settings are more expensive like the Geze TS2000 NVBC (goes down to power 2) or the Geze TS4000 (which goes down to power 1).
