Flooring Options for Dogs

Best Flooring for Dogs

It can be very hard to leave your dog outside, particularly when the winter months roll in. The problem is that they’re not great at cleaning up after themselves, don’t know how to wash and when they decide they want to run in the house, it’s time to say goodbye to that nice finish on your floorboards.

Is There Such a Thing as Flooring for Dogs?

While this may have been the case years ago, there are now excellent dog friendly flooring options available to Australian homeowners that will allow you to enjoy the company of your loyal best friend, while simultaneously being able to relax about whether your new flooring is about to be tagged forever by their nails.

Huge Range of Pet Friendly Flooring

At TFCC, we stock an impressive array of pet friendly flooring options at extremely competitive prices in our enormous Melbourne flooring store. What’s more, such is our dedication to convenience and our customers getting exactly what they want; we even have walk-on displays ready for you to test before you buy – although we’re not suggesting that you should bring your dog along!

Which Floors are Best for Your Four-Legged Friend?

As flooring specialists, we would always recommend laminate or vinyl flooring as the best flooring for dogs and cats. While timber flooring looks amazing, hardwood floors can be scratched and marked by claws regardless of the hardness rating of the timber. The same goes for bamboo flooring, so we wouldn’t recommend this either unless, of course, you’re happy to accept that your new floor will pick up multiple scratches.

Modern Laminate Flooring is Great for Pet Owners

However, today’s modern laminate flooring offers a great alternative to hardwood and bamboo without the hefty price tag, especially as it comes in a wide range of timber and bamboo effect finishes which are hardly distinguishable from the real thing. It’s pretty resilient where dogs are concerned, resists scratches well, and won’t absorb fluids either. And while it may not last quite as long as a hardwood floor, with proper care and attention, it’s a practical and affordable choice for pet owners.

Vinyl Flooring is also a Great Alternative for Pets

Or you may prefer to opt for vinyl flooring. Strong, waterproof and resilient, there are so many designs to choose from, and our hybrid vinyl flooring will give you all the good looks of wood with all the benefits of vinyl. It’s dent, stain, scratch and UV resistant and so will stay looking good no matter how many paws travel across it.
