The Top Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Atlanta

December 16, 2021

Dogs live for gazing out the window and sleeping in sunlight, but pups can be rough on window treatments. They swipe at them, bite them, and bring them down. While no treatment is 100% unbreakable, faux-wood shutters are the top dog-proof window treatments in Atlanta. These beautiful interior shutters don’t come down easily, clean up quickly, and bring each member of your family--furry ones included--several methods to get light, privacy, and the scenery.

Polywood Shutters Are Tough Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Atlanta

Window treatments like window shades, blinds, and drapery look lovely in your house, but with their dangling cords, all it takes is a single pull from your dog to pull them off the rod or break them. Polywood shutters are wonderful dog-proof window treatments for Atlanta homes, given their resilience. They have reliable Polywood panels that link to a frame surrounding your window and won’t swing down like shades and curtains or snap with the slightest jolt like aluminum blinds. Shutters don’t have wands or cords for your pooch to gnaw on or get entangled in either. Fido can bat at your interior shutters and rub her back against the louvers all she wants without breaking them. And if your dog tries to eat a louver, that one louver can be swapped out without needing to replace the entire window treatment.

Polywood Shutters Allow Your Animal Look Outside

Every dog wants to peek out the window, but you shouldn’t want neighbors peeking in at you. Polywood shutters feature wide louvers that you can tilt open just to give your furry friend a look outside without forfeiting your privacy. Polywood shutters can be custom-crafted to work with specialty windows like door windows and sidelights. If your canine swipes at the window when someone comes to the door, install Polywood shutters so that she can find out if it’s a barkable stranger up to no good.

You can manage natural light with Polywood shutters too. If you need to make a room dim and cool at the sunniest time of the day, but MacLeash enjoys lying in a sunbeam, angle the louvers down to direct sunlight at the floor. Or ask for shutters that feature a divider rail. This option allows you open the lower louvers for your dog and keep the top louvers closed to prevent harsher light.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning Up After Your Dog A Snap

Like every household surfaces, window coverings can be covered with dog hair and dander. You can attempt many tricks to clean, but dusting Polywood shutters is pretty straightforward. Just wipe them with a static duster or dish cloth, and they’ll remain hair-free. If you sind grubby foot prints or nose smudges on your shutters, a damp rag works just fine. As for errant pees, Polywood shutters are moisture-resistant. If your pup walks in from hazardous weather and shakes himself dry, or your curious puppy salivates on your treatments, just wipe them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Repaired Instead Of Replaced
