Another item to consider is the length of your dog's nails. If your dog has his nails clipped regularly, he isn't going to be able to tear into the floor as much. Lots of aspects need to be considered with a dog's nails though. If your dog grows an excess amount of hair between the pads of his paws, he is going to be a little bit more slippery on the floor, and he is going to use his nails to compensate. Furthermore, a dog that is slipping regularly also has a different level of damage to worry about, and that is to the dog himself and to whatever he might plow into. Installing a hardwood floor means that you will have to pay attention to your dog's indoor activity and his paws a lot more. There are a couple of solutions for these types of situations. The main one is that a throw rug can be put down in active areas (like by the door). This will stop some of the damage. Mats and rugs in high traffic areas make a lot of sense, even if there isn't a dog in the household. Some dog owners also teach their dogs to stay off of the hardwood floors period. They have carpeted areas in the house for dogs and children to play on. If that isn't how your house is, well placed rugs can cure a lot of issues. A rug by the door is a good idea, and anywhere where the dog might be inclined to slobber as well.
If there are any problems, who do I call? Most flooring stores will be buying the flooring they are selling to you from a distributor who purchases the flooring from the manufacturer. Sometime, especially with products coming from overseas there is more than one distributor involved. In many cases if you have an issue with your flooring and complain to the retailer they will call the distributor and let them know there is a complaint, the distributor will tell the manufacturer there has been a complaint. In most cases the manufacturer will deny the complaint and if you are lucky they will even send a representative to deny your claim in person. Most retailers would correct a manufacturing problem to make their customers happy because they are the ones dealing with the customers face to face but in reality they do not have the final say unless they want to replace the flooring out of their own pocket. The manufacturer is so far removed from the actual client that they know it is better for their bottom line to deny the claims and assume they will never have to deal with the issue because they are so protected by their warranties. Picture a person at a desk with a pile of hardwood flooring claims on their desk with a big stamp that says ”denied”.
