Datenight: Thanks. This is just what I was looking for. We live and cruise 24/7's with a dog and varnish just doesn't hold up for us.

*Larry,

While a finish like MoistureCure or Street Shoe is harder than a standard urethane (which are also quite good) almost nothing stands up to dog toenails over time. Your best bet is to keep the nails trimmed (you and the dog!) and possibly runners in the main dog/traffic areas. The carpets will give fido better traction as well as protect the floor.

We have a local chain store, Ocean State Job Lot that sells "oriental" style runners and carpets inexpensevly. Something like that looks good over the wood and does not break the bank.
