Stop unraveling

I have searched all over and only found results for replacing carpet on doghouse.

I need help with this, I want to stop this unraveling on the doghouse carpet. What have any of you done or where to purchase something to stop it. All help/responses are greatly appreciated.

The only real way to stop that is binding the edges. You can try to apply heat to the edge to melt the fibers together but it will look pretty bad or would to me. Bind or replace is the only real solution to that.

If you have a cat, have it declawed.
Sewing binding over the edge would be the best looking but would require a upholstery sewing machine or some hand stitching with big needles.
The unraveling of the unfinished edges CAN ALSO be stopped by applying liquid rubber. Lowes and Home Depot carry liquid rubber in cans and aerosol in various colors to include black, red, white, and clear. If the carpeting is not glued to the dog house, you can also apply liquid rubber to the back of it. The liquid rubber will seal the carpet fibers together. The face of the carpet can be taped and liquid rubber can be applied to the edges and back.

Trim off the ugly stuff and carefully burnish "melt" the edge to lock the fibers together. Practice on a scrap of carpet to get the hang of it. If done correctly it will not be seen and will last forever.

Take the dog house to an upholstery shop and recover in a heavy fabric or leather?

Trim it up and get yourself a bottle of fray check and apply as needed. Prym Dritz Fray Check Sealant at Joann.com
