Clawguard in Charlotte, N.C. has received a patent for its home protection products.
“It’s an exciting milestone in Clawguard history,” said Kevin Dixon, founder of Clawguard. “This patent means that pet owners around the world can count on Clawguard to deliver high quality, yet simple solutions to a costly problem—protection from household damaged caused by dogs, cats and other pets.”
Clawguard offers a portfolio of products that assists pet owners in keeping their home beautiful, according to company officials. Since its humble beginnings as a “piece of cardboard and duct tape door shield” to a growing portfolio of scratch protection products, dog and cat owners are finding Clawguard to be the ideal solution to destructive and anxious pets.
Damage to doors, frames, walls, floors, floor molding, weather stripping, couches, furniture, window sills, glass and other household items is common, and Clawguard aims to help.
“This patent highlights the dedication Clawguard has to the millions of pet owners who struggle with damage caused by pets,” Dixon said. “We will continue to invest in R&D to develop high quality products for our customers and help our retail partners create a new niche in their stores to better serve pet parents.”
Pet behavior awareness and pet anxiety education is a core focus of Clawguard. Working with pet behaviorists, trainers, sitters, rescues, shelters and other pet advocacy groups is part of Clawguard’s mission.
The Clawguard product portfolio includes door shields, protection tapes and furniture shields that protect where dogs, cats and other animals scratch most.
