Flooring Solutions for Small Dogs

Small breed dogs include types such as Chihuahuas, Pomeranians and Maltese. The weight for small breed dogs generally ranges from 3-12 pounds. Even though small breed dogs are relatively lightweight, their nails can still scratch and gouge the surface of some of the softer floor types. As a general rule, it's best to keep their nails trimmed to minimize floor scratches.

Even though they are small in stature, small breed dogs still produce pet dander and are capable of shedding. You may want to consider a hypoallergenic floor that can resist pet dander. Hypoallergenic floors not only resist pet dander, but also other household allergens such as mites, dust and pollen. Cork, bamboo, linoleum and concrete are some examples of flooring that naturally resist allergens. However, concrete may not be suitable for homes with dogs as acidic substances, such as urine, can damage and dull the concrete finish.

Cork provides a hypoallergenic surface that is also comfortable to walk on. This is ideal for older pets that may have walking difficulty. Floors that tend to be more slippery, such as many of those comprised of tile or stone, are not usually recommended for pets with bad joints as this could increase the risk of an accident.

Good info here. I have a chihuahua that has ruined the carpet in every room in my house. They can be difficult to housebreak, not to mention their digging skills. I wouldn't think my little guy could pull up a corner of carpet, but I was proved wrong.

I have a small dog and make sure he gets his nails trimmed regularly especially now. I just recently installed new hardwood floors throughout my entire home and the last thing I want are scratches all over them. Keep paws trimmed and you'll be fine. I don't worry about scratches on my floor

“I don’t see you any more except at a distance.” “I don’t see you either.” “I didn’t think you wanted to see me.” “You’re easily discouraged,” she said, looking down with a serious face. “You made me feel as if I didn’t want to live any longer.” “I reckon I’m mean. I made myself feel a million times worse. Thank your uncle, William, thank your uncle!” “My Timberland Pro daughters,” Christian Louboutin Shoes replied Sir Thomas, gravely interposing, “have their pleasures at Brighton, and I hope are very happy; but the dance which I think of giving at Mansfield will be for their cousins. Could we be all assembled, our satisfaction would undoubtedly be more complete, but the absence of some is not to debar the others of Christian Louboutin Black amusement.” Mrs. Norris had no
