The Best Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Detroit

December 16, 2021

Puppies adore peering out your windows and napping in a sunbeam, but pups can be tough on window treatments too. They swipe at them, gnaw them, and bring them down. While no window treatment is completely indestructible, faux-wood Polywood® shutters are the most dog-proof window treatments in Detroit. These faux-wood interior shutters don’t come down easily, clean quickly, and bring each member of your family--canines included--many methods to get natural light, privacy and the scenery.

Polywood Shutters Are Tough Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Detroit

Coverings like window shades, curtains, and blinds look fine in your house, but with their softer fabrics, all it takes is a single tug from your dog to pull them to the ground or ruin them. Polywood shutters are the best dog-proof window treatments for Detroit families, because of their durability. They have solid faux-wood panels that attach to a frame surrounding your window and won’t swing down like curtains or drapery or break with the slightest bump like blinds. Interior shutters don’t have strings or cords for your pup to gnaw on or get tangled in either. Fifi can bat at your shutters and rub against the louvers all she wants without breaking them. And if the pooch tries to eat a louver, that one louver can be removed and replaced without having to throw away the entire covering.

Polywood Shutters Let Your Pooch Peek Outside

Every dog needs to see out the window, but you don’t want passersby peeping into your living room. Polywood shutters have wide louvers that you tilt open just to give your furry friend a peek outside without killing your privacy. Polywood shutters can be custom-crafted to work with specialty windows like picture windows and sidelights. If your canine swipes at the side window when the doorbell rings, hang Polywood shutters so that he can check if it’s a friend or stranger up to no good.

You will direct sun glare with Polywood shutters also. If you need to keep an area dim and comfortable at the sunniest part of the day, but Spike enjoys lying in the sun, angle the louvers down to aim your sunbeams at the rug. Or install shutters featuring a divider rail. This feature allows you open up the lower louvers for your hound and keep the top louvers closed to stop harsher light.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Up After Your Dog A Snap

Like all your household surfaces, window treatments attract dog fur and dander. You can try many tricks to clean up, but de-griming Polywood shutters is fairly simple. Just swipe them with a feather duster or dish cloth, and they’ll remain free of pet hair. If you sind muddy foot prints or nose smudges on a shutter panel, a slightly wet cloth works great. As for errant pees, Polywood shutters happen to be moisture-resistant. If your dog walks in from the rain or snow and shakes off the fur, or your rambunctious puppy licks your treatments, just pat them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Fixed Instead Of Replaced
