Dogs are great, but that definitely sounds frustrating. You can try a few things to get rid of the scratches.
If the scratches didn’t go deeper than the clear coat, you can try using a paint restore wax to buff out the scratches. This will also protect your paint job from further scratches and chips.
You can also try taking your car to a full-service car wash, where the employees should be able to buff out the scratches for you. If the scratches are too deep to be buffed out, you can try fixing them at home by sanding and repainting the area.
You clearly care about your car a lot, and I’m sure you’d like to keep it well protected. One of the best ways to do this is to have a good insurance policy! The Jerry app can help you find the right policy for you at the lowest possible price.
