Dogs and cats are known for their claws and curious nature. However, when curiosity meets the home, doors, walls, and other areas around the house tend to be the victim of abuse, from the claws. One trick to defeat this is to apply a thin layer of clear Plexiglas on the area for where your pet likes to claw. For many dog owners, this could be the outside of the door opening or even the inside. For cat owners, Plexiglas should be applied to any surface that your cat likes to claw at in order to prevent damage to the wood or indoor surface.
