When my cousin told me about Soft Claws® vinyl nail caps, I thought she must be kidding. Then I visited the website and realized these little beauties might actually save my hardwood floors and furniture from my 60-pound Goldendoodle's enthusiasm.
Developed by a veterinarian, Soft Claws aren't just pretty in pink (and every other color imaginable). They benefit dogs and cats in many ways:
- Soft Claws protect pets' skin from their own scratching (especially beneficial for pets with allergies or skin sensitivities).
- Soft Claws protect unsuspecting guests and their knit clothing from your dog's enthusiastic greetings.
- Soft Claws protect furniture and flooring from nail damage. After all, it's laminate, not a slip-and-slide.
According to the Soft Claws website, "Each package of Soft Claws contains 40 nail caps, 2 tubes of adhesive, applicator tips and easy to follow instructions. Each application lasts approximately 4-6 weeks so one package lasts about 4-6 months."
For the diva dog, you may consider the glitter combo pack (several color options). For the Clemson fan, try a winning combination of blue and orange. Or maybe your dog or cat prefers a more conservative palette of black or even clear. If you have $20, the time and patience to apply a set of vinyl nail caps and an enduring appreciation for your furniture, floor and wardrobe, Soft Claws just may be the purr-fect fit for you.
