Dog chewed up a small piece of carpet at transition from hardwood to carpet

Son was visiting with his dog. While we were out the dog chewed up a small piece of carpet at the transition from wood to carpet between the foyer and the living room.
The width of the missing carpet is about 3/4 of an inch. The carpet is worn in that area so getting a piece o carpet from a closet won't work. Could the carpet just be stretched? Need to find someone who can fix it for me in Atlanta.

They might be able to stretch the carpet but since it was probably stretched during installation there might not be any stretch left. You could also look at installing a wider threshold strip to cover the damage.

Extending the threshold was my thought also.

How long has the carpet been down? If a few years, you probably can stretch it up with a power stretcher.

The carpet has probably been down for a 10+ years. We just moved in about 15 months ago and the house was built in 2002. The damaged area is small but it is right in the middle of the entry way. Extending the wood transition piece see liek a good idea is stretching wouldn't work.
