Flooring Guide to keep your home Dog-Friendly

Dogs leave paw prints on our hearts. But you never want those prints, scratches, or stains on your flooring. If you have a dog, you have to carefully consider your rug and flooring choices. Durable and easy-care floor coverings would be the ideal choice for you and your pet.


When looking for dog-friendly flooring options, keep the following considerations in mind:

 

  • Scratch resistant
  • Damage resistant
  • Stain resistant
  • Pet’s comfort

6 Dog-Friendly Flooring Options

 

  • Vinyl Flooring

     

    Vinyl flooring is a preferred choice because it is durable and affordable. It is easy to maintain and resistant to scratches and moisture. New luxury vinyl tile, sheet, or plank flooring comes with added thickness; therefore, they are more resilient and long-lasting.

     

  • Linoleum

     

    Though linoleum is a more expensive alternative, it could be an ideal choice for your pet due to its antibacterial and hypoallergenic quality. The endurance of this eco-friendly product is far longer than vinyl flooring. However, since it is a natural product, it can be prone to fading and has limited design choices due to the manufacturing process. Therefore, it is often less popular for pet homes than vinyl flooring.

     

  • Cork

     

    Cork is an excellent option for those who have dogs or other pets in their home. It is a natural antimicrobial product; is also durable, less rigid, and impact resistant. It is also a good sound absorber, so you won’t hear the tapping of little claws and paws all day.

     

  • Bamboo

     

    Bamboo is an eco-friendly option which is completely renewable and naturally stain-resistant. The smooth finish of bamboo flooring makes it easy to clean up litter spills. It is extremely durable, and your pet can happily play on this floor because of its scratch-resistant property.

     

  • Laminate

     

    Laminate flooring is known for its rough-and- tough melamine wear layer, which makes it naturally scratch and stain resistant. But it is a less pet-friendly flooring because it can be slippery. Make sure to get plenty of rug pads over laminate floors to provide extra traction for your dogs.

     

  • Carpets and Rugs

     

    There are no hard and fast rules for owning dogs and not installing carpets or rugs! Thousands of dog owners have carpets and rugs along with their beloved pets. Rugs offer a cozy environment for dogs. Be careful to choose rugs without loops for your pets to avoid snagging their nails.

    Check out our new collection of dog-friendly bone rugs. These rugs are made from ultra- durable polypropylene and are thoughtfully designed in the shape of a bone.
