They do exist. The ST we have just now came with it on.

I don't think it would be enough to protect against dog's claws though. I'd go for a bit of old carpet you can fold out of the boot over the bumper, I've seen doggie people do that.

I did think of the carpet, but dont want the chance of it scratching at the paint... especially with it being a black car it will show up all of that

Vinyl flooring is what I've used before, for a bathroom or kitchen. Just have enough poking out the boot to cover what needs covering.
My mum used carpet, not to protect the paint but to provide purchase for their paws. It protected the paint too.
You can get thicker self adhesive vinyl from ppl that make signs tho

I have a fold out boot liner, works well. I looked into PPF and it just doesnt seem worth it. Its expensive, to the point that a respray isnt much more, and it can actually damage the paint when removed if left on for years.

Anyone done the doors with these paint protection film? Have a very 'careless' person parked next to me (residential parking) who seems to always 'ding' my door.

I'd be having a word and telling them they'll need to pay for repairs if they keep it up. You could set up a dash cam to catch them at it.
