Does laminate flooring affect resale value?

I am reflooring my home, and am trying to decide whether or not to use laminate in my kitchen. I had read that laminate lowers resale value of a home. I am also concerned about the wear layer of laminate. I'm not sure how it would stand up to the daily wear and tear of a kitchen floor. Especially a house with dogs in it. And very lovely dogs they are.
