What Type of Flooring Can Withstand My Pets?

For any pet lover, the best way to find a flooring option that fits your needs is by talking with professionals who know what they’re doing. If your home requires heavy-duty protection from dirty paws and sharp nails (or even everyday wear), then our friendly staff at Courtesy Carpet is here to provide a few suggestions on which flooring option to choose.

Best Type of Floor For Dogs

Wood Look Vinyl

Wood look vinyl shows as a natural wood but is more cost-effective, durable, and can withstand your pup’s sharp nails! Does your dog often get the “zoomies” and want to run from one end of the house to the next? Wood-look vinyl can also withstand that. It’s easy to clean and maintain and comes in various style options. Wood look vinyl is reliable, strong, high-quality, and a great choice for dog owners.


Laminate is another great option for dog owners. It has a similar look to vinyl but mimics more of a distressed hardwood style. It can withstand excited dog scratches and any other daily wear and tear. It’s a very affordable option and easy to clean.


Tile is another good choice for pets; it’s easy to clean and can endure heavy amounts of moisture (e.g., it’s a great option for a home with new puppies still being potty trained). This flooring type also offers a favorable amount of traction for animals running and walking around inside. The only downside is that it may feel a bit cold and hard for your pets versus the other types of flooring.
