The Best Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Phoenix

December 16, 2021

Dogs love peering out your windows and sleeping in a sunbeam, but they can be tough on window treatments. They paw at them, gnaw them, and tear them down. While no treatment is completely unbreakable, Polywood® shutters are the most dog-proof window treatments in Phoenix. These beautiful shutters will not come down easily, clean up without a problem, and allow every member of your family--canines too--different methods to enjoy privacy, natural light and the outside views.

Polywood Shutters Are Tough Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Phoenix

Window treatments like window shades, curtains, and blinds look fine in your home, but with their hanging fabric, all it takes is a single chomp from your pup to take them to the ground or ruin them. Polywood shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments for Phoenix families, given their durability. They have dependable Polywood panels that link to the frame around your window and won’t hang down like curtains or drapery or bend with a small jolt like aluminum blinds. Shutters don’t have strings or cords for your dog to gnaw on or get tangled in either. Fido can paw at your shutters and rub against them all she wants without pulling them down. And if the mongrel makes a chew toy out of a louver, that one louver can be removed and replaced without needing to throw away the entire window covering.

Polywood Shutters Let Your Animal Peek Outside

Every dog needs to see out the window, but you may not want want neighbors looking in at you. Polywood shutters feature solid louvers that you tilt open just enough to allow your furry friend a peek outside without killing your privacy. Polywood shutters also work with odd windows like door windows and sidelights. If your canine paws at the front window when deliveries come, hang Polywood shutters so that she can see if it’s a barkable stranger up to no good.

You can control natural light with Polywood shutters too. If you need to make a room dark and comfortable at the sunniest time of the day, but Spike wants to lie in the sun, angle the louvers down to direct sunlight towards the rug. Or get shutters featuring a split tilt rod. This option allows you open up the lower louvers for the hound and keep the higher ones closed to block harsher light.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Up A Snap

Like all your surfaces, window treatments can be covered with dog hair and dander. You can attempt many methods to dust them off, but cleaning Polywood shutters is very straightforward. Just rub them with a dry duster or cloth, and they’ll be hair-free. If you discover grubby paw prints or nose smudges on your shutters, a slightly wet rag works just fine. As for errant pees, Polywood shutters are moisture-resistant. If your pup runs in from the rain and shakes himself dry, or your curious pup licks your interior shutters, just pat them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Fixed Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are amazingly solid but not undestroyable. If Fifi looks at your shutters as a chew toy, he might create some dents. Luckily, Polywood shutters are simple to mend. Unlike a torn window shade or broken blinds that will need to be thrown away, you can get a hold of Sunburst Shutters Phoenix to swap out separate shutter louvers. You’ll still use your window treatments in the meantime, and once we put in the new louver, your panel will feel new.
