Our dog damaged one of our living room doors and i am wondering what products / tools people could recommend to get the job done, and any tips on how to fix it. I have a general grasp on how to fix it such as:
1. Sand whole door (one side)
2. Wood Filler.
3. Sand again.
4. Primer paint it?
5. Sand again.
Just not sure on what i should be using in terms of primer, woodfiller, brushes, or if i should use a spray gun(i have a Bosch PFS55).
Any tips would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Mike35. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
I can relate to your situation as I used to own a dog which was a door eater. I believe my doors had more Builder Bog in them than actual timber at one stage.
You are on the right track with the method you have described.
Please let me know if you need further assistance or have more questions.
Thank you Mitchell, will try this asap.
Would you recommend sanding and painting whole side of the damaged door? Or just the damaged section.
I have the exact paint still.
You can start by painting the damaged area and if the paint blends in well you can stop there. If you can still see the patch then continue to paint the whole door. I'd recommend painting the whole side of the door as I believe you will get a more consistent finish.
