I have not used the following product myself, but I can see how Soft Claws might come in handy
…in certain situations and on a temporary basis.
Soft Claws are vinyl nail caps that glue on to your dog’s nails.
They look like your dog’s nails, only they are hollow.
The nail caps effectively blunt your dog’s nails so their ability to scratch a variety of surfaces is significantly reduced.
Blunting a dog’s toenail simply means making it less sharp.
More About Soft Claws Nail Caps
The application process is simple: Just fill each vinyl nail cap with the adhesive that’s provided, then slide it on over your dog’s toenail. It stays on for 4-6 weeks.
Each low-cost nail kit comes with 40 nail caps, the adhesive that secures them onto your dog’s toenails, and simple instructions.
You can place them only on the front paws (say, to alleviate temporary scratching) or on your dog’s front and back paws (say, to prevent scratches on hardwood floors).

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
