Indestructible Window Screen???

I don't know if this is even possible. I have dogs and cats and am constantly having to replace my screens because they tear when the dogs/cats scratch on them. The guys at the hardware store have sold me (what they called) some heavy duty special screen. When it tore (easily) they told me to train the animals better. I am hoping there is a solution. I am seeking some kind of indestructible screen material, is it possible??

Pet resistant screening is available. Check with your local glass shop and this web site:

I don't know if you want a metal shield like thing over your screen. The house that we moved into has this cover built over the screen, since they had dogs. I'm not sure what it is called or where you can find one, but it does exist. But I like the previous suggestion better.

Also consider installing a pet door, I imagine the pets only scratch the screen because they want in.

Pet resistant screen

I have 2 dogs and a cat and my husband was constantly replacing the screen...I went to home depot and was able to purchase a pet resistant screen (I can't recall the maker) but it is very durable and 2 years later it is still intact.
