Is your dog nervous about nail clipping, trimming, or grinding their nails? Take the fear out of nail care by teaching them to do it themselves!

Using a ScratchPad™ scratch board, your dog creates a positive association with nail maintenance and is able to choose to proceed, or not, at their own pace. Your dog can trim front and hind nails on a ScratchPad™!

ScratchPads™ are a handmade product, made in the USA. Orders will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground service. Please let us know in the notes section if you have a preference between UPS or USPS.

All purchases of a ScratchPad™ include our training guide, which outlines a simple step-by-step training process to teach your dog to use his ScratchPad™ for his front AND back feet. The instructions provided have been tested many, many times and work very well for the majority of dogs. Of course, every dog learns a little differently, so let us know if you have any questions! We have lots of different training ideas and are always happy to help!

ABOUT THE BOARDS
ScratchPad™ scratch boards are 10”x24” – big enough for large dogs, and still suitable for smaller breeds.
The abrasive surface is upgraded, professional sandpaper. We guarantee our abrasive surface’s durability and that it will not, under normal use, wear out in under 6 months. See our FAQ (https://www.etsy.com/shop/ScratchPadforDogs?ref=seller-platform-mcnav#more-section) for details on our abrasive surface guarantee.

SCRATCHING SURFACE
The scratch boards can be made with a coarse or medium grit surface. Medium grit is a great all-purpose coarseness, but you can use the coarse grit if your dog has large or extra hard nails. We generally recommend the coarse grit for large breed dogs. As always, keep your first sessions short to prevent your dog from accidentally quicking his nails.

OPTIONS
We do have the option for both sides of the board to be covered and finished with an abrasive scratching surface. You can select all one coarseness, or both coarse and medium grits.

Wooden stool in photos not included.

REFILLS
You have the option to purchase a refill pack (of the scratching surface) at the same time as your new ScratchPad™. We do offer a discount on the refills if purchased at the time of purchasing your new ScratchPad™.

We also offer refills for purchase if you already own a ScratchPad™. See our other listing for just the refills here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/663843066/refill-scratchpad-scratching-surface

First of all, this shipped super fast and safely wrapped. I followed the instructions on the YouTube videos and the written ones included and they were very helpful. Of my two dogs, my deaf guy (pictured) was ready for the board almost immediately. My other kiddo is a tripawd so is hesitant to paw things because of balance issues. She's taking a little longer to learn but who cares? Elliot has shortened his nails dramatically in ONE session of only a few minutes, and without any stress or anxiety. My groomer does an amazing job but we are about 6 weeks overdue because of quarantine so this board is exactly what I needed. Strongly recommend. Excellent quality and use. Thank you!

Worth every PENNY! Trimming my dog’s nails has always been borderline impossible, I wish I had discovered this so much sooner. It’s easier, safer, AND keeps him busy and mentally stimulated indoors. What more could I possibly ask for? If you’re even considering buying this, take the plunge, it was a lifesaver for me and my dog!!! His nails are looking so much better after his very first session (about 15 minutes) and he still wants to keep ‘playing’ with it! This will absolutely be a staple in our grooming routine from now on. The only thing I will mention is that my dog is VERY food motivated (we love hot dogs or cooked chicken for training brand new tricks like this) and we already have a strong foundation in trick training. Obviously your results will vary based on your pup! Overall, cannot possibly recommend this enough!!

This has been a life saver!!!! I normally trim all my pets nails, but our newest 1yr pup was not going to have it. I tried everything and she would go crazy or meds didn't really work to even get a couple nails. I was so stressed since her nails were getting long, plus the vet had no more ideas to try. Once I got this board, I did two 10 mins sessions and had already taken of enough of her nails that they didn't hit the floor when she walked. I'm simply thrilled with this product and highly recommend it!!! My pup likes to use her front paws to do puzzle toys or ask for treats, so it took just a couple times with training treats for her to catch on. Now when I bring the board out she gets excited and loves to do it. I'm so glad I found this!

This scratch pad is AMAZING!!! My guy’s nails grow so fast and with being at home/not able to get to the vet during this coronavirus pandemic, I was getting desperate. He HATES getting his nails cut! I put treats under the board and he tries to dig his way through it. EXCELLENT PRODUCT.
