    Great point. Good to remember that it is a floor after all, and is supposed to be lived on.

    Yeah, but what I've found is that freshly trimmed claws = sharper claws = better at leaving scratch marks, especially as they struggle to gain footing on hard floors. We trim our lab's as often as necessary for her health, but wouldn't want to overclip just to save the floors. Totally agree with you on the Dyson vacuum, guy is a beast...
