Default Dogs slipping on floors

I can definitely relate to the problems these poor dogs are having as they slip, slide, and struggle for balance... except my problems are usually on ice and snow and they have to contend with these issues indoors on slippery floors. Cheynie frequently gets the puppy zoomies and twice has wiped out passing through the kitchen as she dashes from room to room. When Chessie had her amputation, the entire kitchen floor was covered in throw rugs which worked out great for her. I think I might chip in to buy some for these poor dogs!

When I put laminate flooring in my living room, I went and got a big area rug for the center of the room as I was afraid the little dogs would hurt themselves jumping on and off the couch and chairs. I have linoleum in my kitchen and it is not slippery.

Right now with the packed down snow and ice, Kris has wiped out several times as she does not know enough to slow down. She looks like several of those dogs when she goes racing out in the morning but not much I can do as salt kills the trees and I hate using chemicals to melt the ice even thought they advertise that it won't hurt the dogs.

I felt sorry for a couple of those dogs.

I'm confused. I'm laughing and feeling sorry for them at the same time.
Seems the harder they try, the more difficult it becomes.

I've often wondered if my dogs have felt that way about me when I've tried to walk them on ice and snow :-)

Have you considered sand on your walk ways?
