When your dog joins the Tripawd community, one of the most helpful things you can do is ensure that the floors in your home are slip-proof. Even if you are just able to create a path throughout the house for your Tripawd to follow, this will give your pup tremendous confidence with his new body structure.

When I became a Tripawd, one of the first things my pawrents did for our home was to cover the hardwood floors with pre-made carpet floor runners. They covered our hallways and my favorite parts of the house. But this wasn’t cheap, and since then they’ve discovered other ways in which pawrents can affordably slip-proof floors.

Here are just a few recommendations:

Interlocking Child-Friendly Floor Mats

12″ x 12″ x 3/8″ thick puzzle pieces.

Interlocking Carpet Tiles

2′ x 2′ Interlocking Tiles. 5/8″ thick. Corners and Border pieces available for a finished look.

Non-Skid Eco Friendly Floor Coatings

Add an eco-friendly, safe clear coat to your concerete, tile or wood floors.
