This is the inside of the kitchen door. Ddog can't do it anymore I've sorted that but wondering how to repair. Dark Colour paint on the door? The white needs about a trillion coats the developer gave me the paint. Any ideas?

I would sand down and use woodfiller on any larger holes. Then paint 2-3 coats.

Oh the wood filler is a good idea. It's mostly paint damage but it might look better anyway

Door off, handle off.
Sand the whole door.
Decorators filler over the damaged area, and sand again.
Undercoat then topcoat the whole door.
Handle back on, door back on.

If you try and patch repair it will probably end up looking patchy.

Plan B would be to get a new door. You might be surprised how cheap that option is.

Dog really??? It's the door frame too though. I know it looks grim but it's really just the paint that's damaged

The frame is slightly simpler:

Sand the whole frame.
Decorators filler over the damaged area, and sand again.
Undercoat then topcoat the whole frame.

Trying just to touch-up the damaged area you won't match in with the rest of the frame.
