It is easy to see why we might turn a blind eye to bad behavior your dog or cat might have. Why? You’re accustomed to his or her barking or to your cat scratching the couch.

The place you’re traveling to for the holidays may not be equipped with a CLAWGUARD shield or furniture tape to protect the door and furniture. If that’s the case, then your beloved pets could be causing costly damage and you just might not be welcomed back next year.
