The challenges of dogs and your flooring; Part One

If you are reading this, you are more than likely a dog lover! We are too. To us they are the greatest animals on earth. Only dogs have evolved alongside man for the last 15,000 years. We become more and more educated on what behaviours drive dogs and as such we understand the needs they have when living in our homes.
What is the main driving factor of dogs?

Self-preservation & Play:

They love to play. One of the main characteristics of all healthy dog is the drive to play. Inherent from the evolution of the Grey wolf packs have utilised play to prepare themselves for survival and confrontation. Although domesticated dogs do not face the same challenges as wild dogs it is a trait that will not be disappearing anytime soon.
As part of your pack dogs will expect us to play with them. But even when we don’t they will entertain themselves; chasing after a ball, having a mad rush around the living room, and trying to dig through to Australia!

Dog Claws

This can be very detrimental to your flooring, in the form of claw marks. Flooring such as wood, laminate, rubber and carpet will be damaged or gain unsightly scratches from dogs claws and cause expensive restoration or replacement. Your beautiful floor can become tired looking very quickly
