How Do I Protect My Hardwood Floor From Dog Nail Scratches?

The following blog post is a recommended post by one of our followers.  Several of our clients have had great success with this protection application and have added years of life to their hardwood flooring systems.

The following information was obtained from:

“Invented by veterinarian Dr. Toby Wexler, Soft Paws has been on the market since 1990. Soft Paws nail caps for dogs are vinyl nail caps that glue on to your dog’s nails. They cover your dog’s nails to keep them blunt and harmless. This fantastic product helps protect you and your belongings against problem dog scratching.

Soft Paws offers protection against the following situations: 
Damage to Household Surfaces: Hardwood Floors - Doors - Walls - Screens - Furniture - Carpets
. The nail caps effectively blunt your dog’s nails so their ability to scratch surfaces is significantly reduced.
Canine Skin Conditions: Allergic Skin Conditions - Chronic scratching. By blunting the nails, less damage occurs when your dog scratches. This can help your dog’s skin heal faster.
Protects from Dog Scratches: Dogs That Jump Up & Scratch You - Elderly People with Fragile Skin - Diabetics - People Taking Blood Thinners. Soft Paws can help you to feel more relaxed about enjoying your dog’s affection by blunting your dog’s nails

The application is simple. Just fill each nail cap with the adhesive provided & slide it over the nail. It's that easy! 

Soft Paws are extremely safe and non-toxic. Even if your dog swallows one, no harm will come. The nail cap will safely pass through the digestive system.

Each Soft Paws kit contains 40 nail caps, adhesive and easy to follow instructions. The cost is only $18.95 per kit.
The length of time each kit lasts depends on your individual needs. Each application lasts approximately 4-6 weeks. Depending on your needs, you will apply the nail caps to all four paws or just the front paws. For example, if you are using Soft Paws to protect against your dog scratching the doors, walls or screens, you may wish to apply the nail caps to the front paws only. This will give you four front paw applications per pack, and the package will last you approximately 4-6 months.”
