Hard Wood Floors and Dogs
My current house has cream carpet through out :eek: (why???) and it is not getting along with the dog, husband, or cat. I am on my hands and knees scrubbing stains every single week and vacuuming constantly. As a result, I would LOVE to replace the downstairs (main living area of the house) with hard woods or Pergo.
The ONLY negative is that I know my dog will dislike it. She doesn't like the ceramic tile in the kitchen because it is slippery and I'm pretty sure Pergo will be the same. One of the employees at the hardware store mentioned that the laminate Pergo is even more slippery than hard wood, but at this point Pergo will probably be much more cost effective.
Who all has hard woods? Do your animals cope? The cleaning will be so much easier and I won't have to worry about all of the dirt in the carpet, but I'm nervous for my pup.
