That much damage may mean replacing the door and trim.

On the other hand, if you are willing to paint your doors and trim, you might be able to repair the damage with Durham's Rock Hard Putty, sand it, then prime & paint it.

It appears that they do not like to be locked in the room. Something you may want to consider would be to properly use a crate for when you leave along with exercise before you leave.
As far as the doors and base go it is not looking like an easy fix.

Screw a piece of plexiglass to the door. They will not like it because their toenails will slip off. Then of course you will probably face another issue after that. You could also call the Dog Whisperer.

You could try getting the dog a playmate. That might keep him busy but also he might teach the playmate to help him damage your door.

I lean toward what someone else said. Train your dog to stay in a crate when you are gone.

Poor old thing just wants to go with you.

I am a dog lover myself.

Hmmm.... our dogs did this when I was a child but my parents just left the doors as is. Fix them or replace them and the dogs would only go and ruin them again.

Things like this are just what you tend to have to put up with when you have dogs imo. Unless you're really great at training them, which I guess we weren't (they were a very 'hyper' breed naturally however, not that I'm making excuses...!)

Edit to add:

Just thought, if you were to replace your doors I'd really recommend these http://www.ukoakdoors.co.uk/ I used them recently and they were lovely to deal with and the doors are great.

Again though, you might just want to accept a less than perfect looking home while your dogs are around (they're definitely worth it!)

I would advise against plexiglass unless you address the issue of the scratching. If you make the door unpleasant to scratch, they may move to the wall, and they will quickly destroy it.

I second the idea of crate training.

That baseboard and door trim is history. Time to replace it. It looks like the door might be too, I can't tell how deep that is from the pics.

Time for a crate. Either that or a 7lb dog like I have. She's been scratching at my couch for months and I have yet to actually see any damage.
