This Carpeted Claw Sharpener is Creatively Made to Look Like a Dog

The DOG scratching post design by creative Erik Stehmann cleverly references the timeless dispute between cats and dogs with a canine aesthetic. The post is creatively structured to be a full-sized small dog that kittens can paw on to keep their claws in shape.

The irony of creating a cat scratching post shaped like a dog is humorous in many ways, and it creatively draws an element of neutrality between the two somewhat similar species. The post features a sturdy design modelled after a labrador puppy that is covered in knitted material. The fabric is designed to stand up to wear and tear as cats use the post to scratch and stretch out their claws. Pet owners will for sure get a kick out of seeing a cat playfully getting along with an inanimate hound.
