Do any of your dogs have a hard time on wood floors? We are finally in our new house and Uma is like Bambi on ice whenever she tries to run on the wood floors.

Do you think she'll get used to them over time?

Every once in a while Riley slips when running, but he's pretty good at not falling on them now.

Have you considered putting rugs down?

Ours seem to be used to our hard wood...they do slide out sometimes...we also have many area rugs so there isn't a ton of exposed floor. They slide more on our tiled floor...mostly when they are tired.

We have wood and tile floors but like Leslie, lots of throw rugs. No problem for Tanner in fact one of his favorite things is to have you throw his ball, he runs and when he hits a rug he slides....loves it :p

Maya spins out on the floors all the time but I think she does it on purpose. Also when chasing a toy she'll slide to the toy once she is close enough.

We have laminate in the hall and when Cacao is running around she will act like she is going to fall and does right into the door.

we have all wood floors and the dogs have no problem with slipping. Fred slipped about a little when we first got him, but not anymore. We jsut took the carpet off the stairs too, and the dogs have done just fine. I was worried that i would need to put another stair runner down, but fred has been doing fine on the wood. I am glad about that, since it is a lot easier to sweep the stairs then having to vacuum them.

I have wood laminate floors and tile. Is the laminate doodle-proof, i.e. can their nails scratch the wood up? I haven't noticed any scratches so far!

Wait a minute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I'm hung up on the fact that some of you have throw rugs and your doods haven't torn them up. Tucker and Frankie chew on them and have ruined a few. These guys can't even have a dog bed, they have destroyed them as well.

We have all tile floors except in the bedrooms and we have some throw rugs rugs at various high traffic areas. Ozzie usually "spins his wheels" getting up to sprinting speed on the bare floor, then uses a rug like a baseball player sliding into home plate.

So... we're constantly "unscrunching" the rugs. The positive thing is he was initially chewing the smaller rugs' end tassels and corners but lost interest quickly.
