Original ScratchPad™ Dog Nail File
ScratchPad™ Nail File for Dogs - Free US Priority Shipping!
Is your dog nervous about nail clipping, trimming, or grinding their nails? Take the fear out of nail care by teaching them to do it themselves. Using a ScratchPad™ scratch board, your dog creates a positive association with nail maintenance and is able to choose to proceed, or not, at their own pace. Your dog can trim front and hind nails on a ScratchPad™! ScratchPads™ are a handmade product, made in the USA. Please note, the current processing time to ship your new ScratchPad™ is 1-2 business days, though most orders ship the very next business day.
All purchases of a ScratchPad™ include our training guide, which outlines a simple step-by-step training process to teach your dog to use his ScratchPad™ for his front AND back feet.
You can choose to purchase just a ScratchPad™, or you can purchase a ScratchPad™ with a Refill Pack. Purchasing both together gives you free shipping (they will ship together) as well as offering a discount on the normal Refill Only prices.

The scratch boards are 10" x 24" - big enough for large dogs, and still suitable for smaller breeds. For small dogs, we recommend turning the board on its side.
The sanding surface is upgraded, professional quality, meant to be durable and not wear out quickly.
These scratch boards can be made with medium or coarse grit paper, or a combination of both grits. Medium grit is a great, all-purpose texture, but you can use coarse if your dog has large or extra hard nails - just make sure to initially keep your sessions short to keep your dog from accidentally quicking his nails.
On average, with normal use as directed for one to two dogs, your scratching surface should last 6-9 months. We are confident in the quality of our sandpaper and offer a guarantee*. If you find that your sandpaper has worn down in less than 6 months, please contact us for a complimentary refill pack.
In the meantime, see our FAQ page for our advice to prolong the life of your ScratchPad's abrasive surface.
