  • The 7 Best Door Scratch Protectors for Dogs

    The Clawguard is made from recycled, ridged plastic that covers your door to protect the wall, frame, and the door itself.

    We like that you can adjust the size by trimming it with a pair of scissors and pick from two finishes — either smooth or textured — depending on how much noise you want to hear when the dog does scratch the plastic. The noise is supposed to be irritating and discourage them from continuing this bad habit.

    Installation is a breeze — just hang it around a doorknob, and it will fit all standard doors. The guard itself is 44×20 inches in size and fits right over the handle, staying in place. On the downside, the Velcro pad that comes with the product is not durable with active dogs who tend to jump on the door. It also works better on the flush side of the door, compared to the recessed side. We think this is the best door protector for dog scratches on the market.

    What can I put on my door to keep my dog from scratching it?

    Install a Clawguard Door Protector

    Even a trained dog may scratch at a door if he or she experiences separation anxiety. So, a CLAWGUARD shield can come in handy, both while training and while you’re away from home.

    How do I dog proof my front door?

    The Best Solution

    Whenever possible, dog proof your doors by changing out lever handles or installing security locks before bringing a new dog into your home. If your dog has already learned to open doors, apply the locking mechanism that works best for your family.

    Why does my dog constantly scratch at the door?

    To fix more serious scratches, sand off the paint around the damaged area (and a little untouched wood too), and then use a wood filler to mask the deepest scratches. Let the filler dry, and then repaint the door as normal. Give your home a facelift with our selection of internal solid wood doors.
