The Best (and Worst) Sex Types If You Have a Dog
Your dog influences many aspects of your life, from travel plans to household expenses and the amount of fur on your clothes. But one of the biggest things that change after a dog has gotten started (some types are larger than others) is your home.
Whether it’s shoe lovers, food thieves, or super lights, dogs can do a little something in your shoes. This is especially true for floors. It turns out that some floors are more dog-friendly than others. Here are some of them.
The best types of dog floors
Of course, every dog is different, and your ideal dog might not be a problem at all. Or maybe you have a strong preference for a certain type of flooring that is not most suitable for dogs, but is willing to put the time and effort into caring for it. Wonderful. For everyone else, there are several options :
- Waterproof vinyl floor : crash-resistant, durable, dirt-repellent, economical, soft underfoot
- Tile : Scratch resistant, easy to clean (with large grout lines), waterproof, suitable for resale of your home [caution: some tiles may be too slippery for older dogs]
- Waterproof laminate flooring : scratch resistant, easy to clean, durable, economical.
Worst types of dog flooring
It’s one thing if you already have such flooring in your house before you get a dog. But if you have a dog and are remodeling your floor, you may want to avoid these types of flooring:
- Solid wood : water (and other liquids) can easily cause damage, scratches, requires more care / maintenance
- Carpet : Does n’t deal well with accidents (solids or liquids), harder to clean, more likely to trap fur / dandruff / fleas, prone to stubborn stains
- Marble : prone to stains and scratches, porous and soft stone, standing water (and other liquids) can damage
Another way to find out which flooring works best for your dog is to ask other people who live with dogs – ideally dogs like yours or yours – about their experience with the flooring. Most likely they will have good understanding and advice.
