Hi all, im new to the forum and could think of no other place to go. We desperately want to put hardwood floors in our home, BUT in our last home our 2- 80lbs lab mix kids scratched the heck out of them!!!! We were told that certain types of wood, the harder variety such as brazilian cherrywood, would not be damaged by doggy nails, but the salespeople we talked to just want to sell and dont really know. I can't imagine that all dog lovers don't have hardwood floors b/c of doggy nail damage. Any advice? Thanks a million in advance.
