If you have dogs in your home especially large dogs it’s a good idea to have throw rugs strategically placed over your hardwood floors. Place them under your coffee table, dining room table and if possible around the perimeter of your bed as well.
Hardwood floors can be be pretty slick. Just ask your 6 year old who likes to slide around in his socks. Some dogs have a difficult time getting up off the wood floor when they are lying down and will extend their claws to try and get a better grip thereby digging their nails into the wood flooring causing scratches. If your dog has his favorite place to lay down, place a throw rug down. It will enhance the designer look of your home, make your dog’s life easier and it may save you the frustration of having to pay to have scratches fixed.
