The science behind Scratch Square.

Dog nails need to be trimmed every 2-3 weeks, but clipping nails can lead to anxiety, aggressiveness, and even permanent fear in your dog. Neglecting the nails can lead to DJD, arthritis, and overgrowth. (PetMD)


Clipping allows the "quick" to grow out, whereas having them files their own nails caps and receeds the "quick," reducing maintenance.


Scratch Square makes it easy to keep your dog entertained AND sharp nails under control!

A Perfect Size for Your Dog

Scratch Square comes in the perfect size for your dog. Try a small for dogs under 25 pounds. Get a medium for dogs between 25 and 55 pounds. And for the biggest dogs, we make a super-durable large Scratch Square.

Debra created Scratch Square for Trevor in 2018, after he had a horrible experience at the groomer, which resulted in him being deathly afraid of all attempts to trim his nails.


Searching for another method, Debra learned there wasn’t a suitable grooming option for Trevor without medical sedation. Debra discovered that Trevor’s natural instincts would have him claw at an object to open it up.


It took 2 years of design and material testing to come up with the perfect multi-function, stress-free dog puzzle, that also trims nails.


We’re proud to finally share Scratch Square with the world!

F&Q's

    What Kick comes on Scratch Square?

    Scratch Square comes with the "File" abrasion; this is a great starting point for pets that have just had their claws trimmed or for puppies who's "quicks" are not fully developed. 


      How do you replace Kicks on the Scratch Square? 

      De' Vora Kicks are on velcro. The easiest way is to use a pen or butter knife to go in between the hook & loop material. It's industrial strength velcro so it takes a bit to work it off. Learn more here.

        How do the back paws get filed on the Scratch Square for Dogs? 

        Scratch Square was designed to address the front claws; reducing or in some cases eliminating the need for restrictive grooming. The cool thing is, we have found that when the front nails are properly maintained the back nail ware naturally. Similarly to how animals maintain their nails in the wild. 


          How do you prevent your dog from chewing on the square? (I'm worried its going to damage his teeth)

          There are a couple different ways to help with this! 


          Scratch Square is a "tool" disguised as a "toy" so monitoring play and taking it away after play sessions are recommended.


          Your dog will EXPLORE Scratch Squares, however they normally will not continually "Chew" on the sandpaper surface. If this occurs please redirect your pet and/ or take the toy away immediately. 


          To NOT encourage chewing but to encourage Scratching, tossing, and chasing, start off with small treats that fall out easily. You can even mix it up with all different size treats! 


          Let your pet know they are doing a great job when you see or hear the "Scratching sound"! 


          Lastly, feel free to tug with them or stand on the handle to create resistance; as a means of interaction and reinforcement of Scratching. 


          Is this a US product? 

          All De' Vora products are designed in the United States and the products are manufactured around the world. We believe in strengthening our community through safe and fair working conditions. Our products are built with quality that meets our high expectations. Therefore, we take pride in our ability to deliver only the best when it comes to our brand.

          Best way to file down dog nails!! Got this at the animal expo. just put your dogs favorite treats inside and watch them scratch or dig at the product and as they do they are doing it on what looks like a blackboard or a rough street and as they dig on it they are filing their nails. No more stress on the dog

          Pretty awesome.

          Received it within 5days of ordering. Upon opening it my dog was instantly interested in it. Works amazing I actually have to take it away after a little while cause he doesn't want to stop using it. My only complaint is the holes on the side are a little to big for treats. Most fall out easily. I used 3-4 different kinds and sizes but they all seemed to fall out easily. Will definitely continue to order more products from this company.

          James, thank you for your purchase & positive review. It’s so nice to hear that your fur baby is obsessed with their Scratch Square! After all that is what we are here for; striving to support the needs of both pets and their parents. Please check out our Challenge up plugs as they might helpful to slow down the treat dispensing! :) https://devora.us/collections/de-vora-products/products/de-vora-challenge-up-plugs
