Varnishing a Painted Door

Can I put clear varnish on a painted wooden door? They are new doors and I have just painted them with a satin sheen paint. I want to be able to protect them from dirt from dogs laying up against the door without having to clean every day which will wear the paint away eventually

I would think going over them with polyurethane would be ok. You can either spray or paint it on. It comes in clear so it shouldn't affect the color of your new paint but it should still protect it from the elements.
