Hi, everyone. This is my first experience with forums and I look forward to hearing advice from others who love their canine companions. My best buddy is a Basset/Beagle mix ("Bagle"). I am remodeling my home and need advice about durable flooring options. I live on the east coast of Florida, so humidity and sand are ever present factors. Can anyone suggest a flooring surface that will withstand doggie toenails and the occasional accidents? I'm considering cork, vinyl, wood laminate, and porcelain tile. No carpet, please (allergies). Any recommendations?
