Welcome to the forums!
I'm not sure there is much option other than replacing the chewed up wood. Is it limited to the treads?
It would be best to train the dog prior to replacing the damaged wood!

Treads aren't cheap but they can be replaced. If you prefinish them prior to installation you'll cut down on the amount of time the staircase will be out of commission.

So basically there is no option on trying to repair it yourself?? Sanding etc. would be out of the question? Your advice is really appreciated.

You might can make it less offensive by sanding and refinishing but the damage is too deep to make it look new again.

Sanding is not really an option when the dents are that deep.
