My dog drives us crazy with that noise...Can't get his nails short enough that they do not click, they would bleed and hurt. He also slips pretty easily on our floor and has a hard time getting up. Still I would rather have that than carpet and a dog, Yuck!
We just moved into a new house and despite the brand new carpet throughout, I have to pull it all up because of our dogs. We want to put down ceramic tile that looks like wood. The carpet is a light tan color and I have spent a week in panic mode every time the dogs come inside - it takes me 5-10 min to wipe their feet and ensure they aren't tracking anything inside. The older dog puked upstairs today.
I agree - dogs and carpet - GROSS.
The clicking noise doesn't bother me, but have you tried the plastic caps? I don't know if that would silent it any though.
I haven't thought about plastic caps. I don't want to hurt him..so I won't clip them too short. I guess I just have to get used to it. I do agree carpets and pets are gross. I like being able to sweep up the mess and hair everyday.
We took the Husky on vacation to a condo that had all wood. He couldn't walk on the wood but he would slide to the door. I am ready to redo carpets and I think I'll do tile because he doesn't have a problme with tile.
