It can definitely be repaired, it would need extensive spackling, most likely with 2 part Bondo, then sended primed and painted.

this is something that should not take more than 6-8 hours in total, obviously it does require some skill.

The picture shows the door is stained wood.  The wood is repairable but the door will have to be painted or the repairs will be visible.

Do you know if the estimate from Home Depot was to replace the entire door assembly or just the (door(s)?).   If they estimated the cost including removal and replacement of door jambs, threshold, and door trim, then an alternative that could cost less would be to replace the door slabs only and keep the existing jambs and trim.

Its painted; go to hardware store.  Buy spackle and sand paper.  Sand it down, spacke the scrapes.  Sand the spackle.  Repeat again, though after this spackle prime the door.  Then spackle and prime and paint.  You are looking at spackle 3 or more times, priming it more than once and then paitning two coats.  Alot of work.  But less expensive than a new door.

Good afternoon,

The picture of the door looks to have polyurethane applied. If this is the case, that’s most likely an oil based finish. If you are trying to apply a latex base interior paint it will not work unless the finish is completely stripped off.

With out physically seeing this myself I can only speculate this to be the issue. The proper tradesmen to contact would be a Painter.

Search for a door protection kick plate. This will cover current damage and protect for any future...

Samantha,

Typicaly most repairs are noticable and replacement it best.  If you simply need to cove the hole and this is a typical way you keep puppy indoors, you may consider purchasing a piece of metal to cover the hole and prevent more damage.  Home Depot #800537 is a quick idea.
