Stylish Ways To Protect Your Home From Pet Damage (Limited Edition Colors!)

Posted by CLAWGUARD Products on

CLAWGUARD recently introduced two new colors to its line of door guards -- Grape and Blueberry. When it was announced that Pantone’s Color Of The Year was “ultra-violet” we knew we were on top of a trend in home decor.

When you have a dog or cat who destroys the doorframes or window sills when you’re away, you need a solution that will protect the woodwork and not detract from your interior design. Whether your design style is shabby chic, upscale modern or yard-sale remnants, you want to put your unique stamp on it and make it welcoming for you, your family and your guests.

How can you protect your home when you simply haven’t been able to find a solution to stopping your dog or cat from scratching the doors or the windowsills? Here are a few things you can try.

  1. Do what the inventors of CLAWGUARD Products did when they were inventing the door shield -- put up a piece of cardboard to prevent your dogs’ nails from damaging the woodwork. Hint -- it doesn’t work!
  2. Move furniture in front of the doors and window sills. This only works if you have another way to get out of the house and if that’s the case… your dog will scratch that door!
  3. Work with your dog to assure he doesn’t jump and greet you enthusiastically when you come home from a long day’s work or from a short walk to the end of the driveway! A well-trained dog is the best way to protect your home, but sometimes your dog’s enthusiasm overcomes them and they will jump and scratch the door while they’re waiting for you to unlock it and come in and greet them. Frankly, we’d rather protect the woodwork than not be greeted with slobbery dog kisses, wouldn’t you?

Not all dogs and cats will ruin doors and window sills and damage your home or cause you to lose a pet deposit at an apartment or in a hotel room, but if yours have destructive tendencies, CLAWGUARD products protect property and save you money. Another benefit of CLAWGUARD Products is that you don’t need to be an engineer to fit them to your door or sills; all you need is a pair of household scissors. It’s quick, easy and it works.

For those stylish homeowners or for those who just want to add a “pop” of color to their home decor, the Blueberry and Grape CLAWGUARD door guards will do just that. If you like to be in on the ground floor of a trend you can tell friends and family that your Grape CLAWGUARD fits right in with Pantone’s Color Of The Year -- Ultra Violet.

CLAWGUARD is easily customizable, whether you get the clear, frosted clear or Grape or Blueberry. We have had one customer tell us they decorated their CLAWGUARD with stickers and designs to match their favorite basketball teams’ colors.
