What is the best flooring for dogs other than carpet?
Not laminate as this proved me that dogs slip with this
when they jump or run around, same thing happens with
hard wood. My dogs jump up and down the sofa and wrestle
all the time. They fall on there backs on the floor.
My carpet is getting dirty and I would like to replace it
dog friendly flooring other than carpet.
I have seen some vinyl sheet which has little circles (about the size
of nickels) on it, raised. Looks very nice and would offer lots of
Thunder the dog.

What about dogwood? Or maybe they make bark flooring? Or Astro-turf?
Sorry about that... but seriously sliding is a fact of life with any surface
that's easy to clean, sort of by definition. Our cats slip and slide all
over our wood floors, it's hilarious. Hard not to laugh when they run
towards a corner and don't quite make it around...
Anyway you can get tiles with a natural stone looking surface that won't be
slippery, but that probably isn't a good look for a typical living area.
Alternatively, get wood floors (expensive, but if you can afford it they are
beautiful and long-lasting) and use large area rugs.
We have cork, we don't have dogs, but we have a kid who loves to slide
across the cork floor so I can't say it is any less slippery than our
hardwood. This may be because ours is also coated with Varathane, so
basically the same as hardwood or any other surface coated with
Varathane. I'd think if you had cork without any surface protection that
a dog's nails would tear it up pretty good.
