pet friendly flooring types

Like people, all pets are different. The amount of damage one pet can inflict on a floor surface depends on two things: the type of animal and the type of floor. Based upon height, weight and lifestyle, one pet may be able to wear down a hardwood floor in a couple of years while another may do little to no harm whatsoever.

Before you fall in love with a 200–pound Mastiff, take note of the flooring you already have in your home. When it comes to floors and pets, there isn't a "one fits all" solution.
