Claws, Paws & Hardwood floors

Artisan Flooring - Claws, Paws & Hardwood floors

Dogs can sometimes accidentally scratch and damage hardwood floors with their claws, so it's important to take steps to protect the floors. Here are some tips:

1. Keep your dog's nails trimmed: Regularly trim your dog's nails to prevent them from becoming too long and sharp. Long nails are more likely to scratch hardwood floors.

2. Use protective mats: Place protective mats in areas where your dog spends a lot of time, such as by their food and water bowls, their bed, or in front of the couch. Mats will help to absorb any impact from your dog's claws and reduce the likelihood of scratches.

3. Apply protective coatings: Consider applying protective coatings, such as polyurethane or a wax-based finish, to your hardwood floors. These coatings will add an extra layer of protection against scratches and scuffs.

4. Train your dog: Train your dog to be gentle on the hardwood floors. Encourage them to walk slowly and calmly on the floors, and discourage them from running or jumping on the floors.

5. Use dog booties: Consider using dog booties to cover your dog's paws. Booties will provide additional protection against scratches and scuffs, and they can also help to keep your dog's paws clean.

By taking these steps, you can help to protect your hardwood floors from your dog's claws and keep them looking great for years to come.
