The Top Dog-Proof Window Treatments For New Brunswick

December 16, 2021

Your canine friends love gazing out your windows and sleeping in the sun, but they can be a beast on window treatmentsalso. They paw at them, gnaw them, and rip them down. While no window treatment is completely undestroyable, Polywood® shutters are the most dog-proof window treatments in New Brunswick. These durable interior shutters will not come down easily, clean up without a problem, and give every member of your family--furry ones included--several methods to enjoy natural light, privacy and the scenery.

Polywood Shutters Are Durable Dog-Proof Window Treatments In New Brunswick

Window treatments like window shades, curtains, and blinds look nice in your home, but with their softer fabrics, all it takes is a single pull from your pup to bring them to the ground or ruin them. Polywood shutters are wonderful dog-proof window treatments for New Brunswick homes, because of their resilience. They have solid Polywood panels that attach to the frame on your window opening and won’t swing down like curtains or drapery or break with a little jostle like aluminum blinds. Interior shutters don’t have wands or cords for your pup to bite on or get entangled in either. Fido can paw at your interior shutters and rub against them all she wants without hurting them. And if your mongrel makes a chew toy out of a louver, that single louver can be swapped out without needing to taking down the entire window covering.

Polywood Shutters Let Your Dog Look Outside

Every furry friend wants to look out the window, but you don’t want outsiders peeping into your living room. Polywood shutters feature solid louvers that you can tilt open just to give your dog a peek outside without forfeiting your privacy. Polywood shutters can also be custom-made to fit shaped windows like arches and sidelights. If your dog paws at the side window when someone comes to the door, hang Polywood shutters so that it can check if it’s a friend or stranger ringing the bell.

You can control energy-efficiency with Polywood shutters also. If you need to have a room dim and cool during the hottest time of the day, but Fluffy enjoys lying in the sun, tilt the louvers and direct sunlight to the ground. Or get shutters featuring a split tilt rod. This set up allows you use the bottom louvers for your hound and keep the top ones closed to stop sun glare.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Easy

Like every rugs and furniture, window treatments can be covered with dog fur and dander. You can try many methods to dust them off, but dusting Polywood shutters is pretty easy. Just wipe them with a feather duster or cloth, and they’ll remain hair-free. If you discover muddy nose smudges or paw prints on a louver, a slightly wet cloth works great. As for errant pees, Polywood shutters are moisture-resistant. If your pooch runs in from the rain or snow and shakes all over the place, or your curious puppy salivates on your shutters, just wipe them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Repaired Instead Of Replaced
