The Great Dane, German Shepard, Labrador retriever, Neapolitan Mastiff and Dogue de Bordeaux are some of the world’s largest dog breeds that require unique care; from taking them out for extra-long walks or jogs, getting adequate nutrition to finding suitable flooring that can withstand constant heavy foot traffic.
Big dogs tend to be more active, having the right kind of flooring can save you a lot of money in the long term. Thankfully with modern technology, there is now eco-resilient flooring – an affordable and resilient type of flooring that can last throughout a homeowner’s lifetime (and ease the pain pet owners feel when it comes to maintaining their living spaces). Here are 5 reasons why eco-resilient flooring is suitable for your big furry pets.
Some big dogs like the Mastiff tend to drool a lot. Instead of finding solutions to your pet’s drooling, consider eco-resilient flooring. Eco-resilient flooring is highly resistant to water and it is easier to clean compared to other types of flooring like marble and stone. You do not have to worry about your pet’s drool staining the ground.
Furthermore, when an accident happens, you do not have to spend hours trying to clean up your pet’s pee and or worry about the urine seeping into the layers of your floor. With eco-resilient flooring, cleaning and sanitizing will not leave any horrible-looking marks on the floor, thus indirectly helping pet owners maintain their property’s value.
Furthermore, research shows that big dogs with existing bone and joint problems may take a longer time to heal if they fall and or are too tense when walking. Having flooring that is slip resistant can help them walk more comfortably and at the same time, keep them agile and healthy.
Eco-resilient flooring is free of chemicals that can cause your beloved pet to fall ill. This makes feeding easy as you can put food on a shallow tray
As your pet advances in age, its perception of depth, particularly on shiny surfaces, becomes distorted due to cataracts or loss of vision and this will affect your dog’s movements, says Veterinarian Shannon Budiselic.
