The cost of hardwood flooring is usually higher if you source them from home improvement establishments and local dealers. The latter has the advantage of possible price negotiations and typically offering free samples. Liquidators and flooring wholesalers both offer competitive prices. However, the latter's supply of hardwood flooring cannot be guaranteed and no warranty is usually offered. Floorboard wholesalers offer hardwood flooring at more affordable rates and are more reliable stocked. Furthermore, most will ship free samples to prospective buyers. Make sure to compare suppliers to be able to get the best deal possible.
Dog hair is another aspect to consider. If you have a particularly hairy dog, it is now (more than ever) time to stay on top of grooming your dog. Regular baths and the use of de-shedding brushes like a Mars comb are perfect for this. Sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping regularly will keep the dog hair up. Dog hair can get in between the boards and snag on just about everything. Keeping your dog properly groomed regularly will help cut down on this. But the fact that you have to face is that a dog is completely covered with hair, whether long or short. That hair is going to get shed around the house regularly and it is going to be a lot more visible on a hardwood floor. Another issue to consider is the kind of hardwood flooring that you are installing. A lot of pre-fab tongue-and-groove-type flooring have gaps between the pieces. Not huge gaps, some are rather subtle, but there is a gap nonetheless. This gap is going to potentially get filled with doggie dirt and funk. Get hardwood with the smallest gaps possible between your boards. In your consideration of the hardwood that you are getting, you also want to make sure that it is a hardwood that can be refinished. That way you can have it buffed regularly.
