If you get a good quality laminate it wil last for years. Mine is going on 15 years and not a scratch. And a whole lot of dogs have been on it thru out the house.

if you have really really old read 1901 hard wood floors that we did sand and refinish about 2 years ago and so far the pack/nails cant seem to hurt them Just the table with no pads and an exposed nail in the leg that put a nice 4ft grove in them a week after we did them but we have had newer hardwood in a different house that did not hold up to just Miss Roxi and I am sure the pack would have killed them

We have hardwood.

Bosley's nails have done a number on it And I keep his nails short.

You can most definetely get a good faux-hardwood-looking laminate that stands up to nails alot better

I have tile and bamboo hardwood flooring, stella doesn't do anything to damage it, but it dents real easy and scratches easy when you sccidently drop your keys... I was very disapointed in the floor... expensive pos.. good news is if stella does find a way to scratch, daddy won't be too mad

Love bamboo! I thought about putting it in our family room. The salespeople actually told me it remains very soft for a year or so after installation. It will harden up a bit, but it is still a soft wood floor. I am very appreciative that they were honest with me. They knew I had dogs. I ended up going for the laminate in that rooms as well.

We put an ash floor in our dining room and it's held up pretty well (about 7 yrs ago and we've not refinished it). It does have some scratches on it from SuzyQ and now Sadie, but you have to look for them to find them. But I do have long runners on the main traffic area to the kitchen and living room so I'm sure that helped.

A friend of ours who has five dogs put in the laminate plank flooring and loves it and it looks great after 10 plus years and it is easy to take care of.

We also have the Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring and LOVE IT!!!! I installed it all by myself

Trust me....with 6 boxers this is the best flooring out there! I also love that its waterproof, we didnt go with laminate for that reason.

Yes it is! Especially when with Gabby on prednisone, I have cleaned up so many accidents and didn't have damage from the liquid because I had vinyl. I want it all over my house! I only slightly regret the color because I have stepped in pee puddles a couple times because the color blends too well. Lol

I have Tiles, laminate and old Eucalypt Hardwood.
The tiles in my house are all broken from things being dropped or the house moving, The Laminate is ok, but a pretty cheap one, but I LOVE my hard wood floor, I ahve been in the house for 28months and not a scratch ever with a puppy for 6 months, but it hasn't been varnished with a normal varnish it is a 2 pack resin, it is as hard as tile! Water doesn't damage it, Sally Jackhammering and skidding hasn't scratched it. But it is warm and beautiful colours (it is the original floor from the 1920-1930s). If you want a actual timber floor pay the extra for 2pack resin varnish instead of a normal varnish.
Sally Loves the tiles and wet weather, because she can run and skid all over the place, last week she got a bit too crazy skidding and jumping while she was wet and missed the doggy door, she has an owie on her knee!
