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.
