Dogs are often a man’s best friend, but rarely a door’s. Whether your interior doors are wooden or composite continuous scratching from your family pet can turn the most handsome internal door into an unsightly mess. But whose fault is it? How can we stop it happening?

Well-trained dogs won’t scratch doors but not every dog is well-trained. You can ignore the dog in an effort to teach it that bad habits don’t pay, but it might still leave your doors scratched until Rover gets the message. You can punish the dog or shout “no” until it stops, but if your dog isn’t well-trained in the first place, this might not save your cherished internal doors.

The most obvious and practical solution is to buy a door that is resistant to your doggie’s claws. A laminate door will solve this problem. You can buy them online or in store at the Door Store.
