Dogs and Wood Floors Can Co-Exist: Here's How

If you love your dog, but you also love hardwood flooring, you don’t have to choose. There is a way for your dog and your flooring to co-exist peacefully, without simply accepting scuffed-up surfaces. Here is how to keep your wood in top condition after your hardwood floor installation.

Start by ensuring you keep your dog’s nails trimmed. Shorter nails will cause less damage to hardwood surfaces. You may also want to save games of fetch for outside so that your dog isn’t sliding across the wood floor. Make sure that the surface has a polyurethane seal during your hardwood floor installation, which will help to protect the surface. When wood scratches appear, fix them with a stain pen or use a wood filler for deeper scratches. If your dog has an accident, clean it up promptly, so it can’t sink into lower levels.
