This is the Original ScratchPad for Dogs® - a 10"x 24" nail filing scratch board for your pup. Our product is proven effective and durable in the long run, let our thousands of satisfied customers speak for themselves. We provide training instructions with each purchase and also offer free support from certified trainers with experience training many dogs to use ScratchPads®. Further, we are the ONLY product on the market that is Fear Free® endorsed.

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

I am in shock! My dog becomes extremely aggressive when it comes to cutting his nails (the clippers are a trigger) and I was at a loss at what to do. It took me all of 10 minutes to train him and his nails are now short and perfect! He loves the board too! We tell him “touch” and he gets a treat each time he scratches. The best money I have ever spent!

Works really well! After 3 days my dog has gotten the hang of it. Only thing I have to do is really make sure he is facing the scratch pad, he was coming in at an angle and some nails got filed more than the others! Still a work in progress but the product itself is great and is a glimmer of hope that my dogs nails can be finally under control!

Love love love this for my dog! It took about a week to train him to scratch the pad and keeping his nails trimmed is so easy now!

This scratch pad makes it easy to keep our Rottie's nails trimmed. He loves the game of "touch" to earn a tasty treat!
