  • Yes, I prefer Bona products. Both the cleaner and the polisher....you can see how I used it here http://decoratedchaos.blogspot.com/2014/11/ge...

    If you are having them professionally reifnished, listen to the sugegstions of the pro, but empasize your dog nail issue as your priority. The 'shinier the finishes, the harder and more durable they are . If you want most dog proof, think gym floor finishes sold in most hardware stores, or marine varnishes used on boats like varathane as opposed to a poly.

    Something that will hide scratches and close to the same color of your dogs hair.

    We refinished floors which were heart pine in an old house around 150 years old. I first cleaned them with ammonia, wear a respirator. Then we put on a coat of shellac, tinted like the original. They look amazing. Good luck.

    I'm sure the floors will look beautiful when completed. I suggest sanding them down 1st with professional equipment. This will remove any scratches and blemishes left by your pet. Apply several finishing coats of your color choice. For more flooring tips see www.contraxcontax.com/blog
