    We have wood kitchen floors and they look great and have been through 2 other dogs (they passed) and the 3 we have now. If there's a scratch on the wood you can't see it. I do recommend a wet swifter for wood floors though. It's great if your water bowl is there because they will leave water all over the place.

    The floors will be fine.

    When I got new flooring last year, I contemplated getting a Pergo type floor in the hallway and rec room (where the dogs crates and my computer are). Bea will try to avoid walking on slick floors of any kind. The laundry room - where the door to the patio is - is laminate, as is the kitchen and both bathrooms. Bea will "run across it" like there's alligators going to eat her feet. ha ha Needless to say, I caved and got carpeting in the rec room and hallway. Stupid since there's so much dog hair around here but crap; I didn't want my Little Bea to be uncomfortable.

    I know. Big sap. A big sap that does a LOT of vacuuming. A lot lot.

    We have the original wood flooring in the kitchen and it's scratched to hell .. .but not from our dogs, but from the fact that it's been there since 1852!! The great room is an addition that was put on in 70s and there are no scratches at all on that floor. We have carpeting through the rest of the downstairs and I have to say I totally hate it!! I spend more time using the carpet cleaner to get rid of the doggy smell than anything. I usually wash the carpets about once a month!!


    One thing I should say though .......... if you do end up having scratched floors from your new bully, your love for the bully makes it all pale into insignificance!!! I used to think that dog slobber was something from hell, until we got our first bully Maggie. Now I don't seem to mind it one bit!!!

    we had laminate at the house... 7 yrs and not a scratch. We will have hardwood at the new house and I'm not real concerned about it.... it is oak so it is a tough wood

    We have laminate floors, no problems with scratches. Your dog will be scurry for awhile, just because it is different. The way I got Emma used to the floor, is to put her on her leash, keep her close to me, and walk around on the floor slowly. She got used to it, but every now and then she scurries a little, but no scratches or damage to the floor.
