Screen greens can also be used in combination with screen doors to offer more protection. The grills are usually placed on the lower end of the screen door. They are highly durable and offer one of the easiest and most practical options in dealing with pet-related screen door damages. However, make sure you’ve picked the right size.
Dogs that crash into screen doors when excited don’t actually see the screen as they come running through. You can solve this by making the door more visible to your pet. A simple way to do this would be to attach flagging tape on the screen. It may also be a good idea to attach a solid material on a small part of the screen. The material should be placed low enough to the dog’s eye level. This will ensure the pet knows there is a barrier in front before he goes rushing through. It is important to pick something that will cause no harm to your pooch. Plastic, cardboard, and fabrics are some of the best materials you can use to give the screen door more visibility.
Screened Dog Door
A screened doggie door is designed to give the pet easy access in and out of the house even with the screen door in place. It will normally be installed at the lower end of the screen door. Although this is something that requires a little work, it will be worth it. Your pooch won’t have to scratch anytime they want to get out and in the end, this will limit possible damage to the screen.
If you have a truly adventurous dog, you will want to make sure that it can go out and play as much as possible. But having a screen door might be problematic. The pooch will keep scratching on the door until it finds a way out. You can consider adding a scratch shield in order to prevent damage to the screen door. These are simply large plastic sheets that can be attached to the door, especially on areas where the dogs scratch the most. This would be on the inside just beneath the handles.
