Poor Sawyer. Like many pooches, this Goldendoodle can't stand slippy-sliding his way across hardwood floors. So instead of fighting it, he's invented his own way of dealing with his archenemy.

If your pup has a hard time on slick surfaces in your home (this is especially true of older, arthritic dogs), throw him a bone and create a soft, nonskid pathway that allows him to navigate high-traffic areas. Try FLOR carpet tiles ($10 to $35 per tile), which allow you customize a slip-free highway through the house!
