    Default Dog-friendly flooring?

    We have carpet in the den of our new home, and want to replace it with something that's still warm, but will resist the scratches of our dog's toenails. Any ideas? We were thinking of cork but have been warned that dogs and cork are a bad combination.

    It seems like your looking for a hardwood floor, if so I'd suggest a Handsc****d floor it'll have a more rustic look to begin with so your Dog can scratch it all he likes and only make it look better. Be wary of any flooring sales person that tries to sell you a wood floor that will not scratch. There is no such thing. There are floors that are more resistant to denting/scratching than others but I'd suggest just looking for one that will look good if scratched or hide them. Hence the Handsc****d wood. If that isn't what you're looking for Maybe a Laminate, it is still a "warm" floor, but is pretty much impervious to scratching, and there are some very good wood look laminates out now. Not like the pergo of 10-15 years ago.

    Have put down laminate flooring in our dining room about 5 years ago .We have 2 dogs and never had a problem with scratches as they like to chase each other through the house.The dining room table and chairs,we just added felt to the bottom of the legs just to be safe.Never had a problem yet and easy to keep clean.
