Vinyl plank/tile over concrete slab

Correction to my original post, I have installed over 1000 sq ft of Allure flooring and have yet to be dissapointed. The allure flooring like any other wood or laminate flooring can scratch, though after three years placed in high traffic areas I have no scratches except a very minor hailine scratch that can only be seen from an angled view under the right lighting conditions if you are looking for it. We have several cats though front declawed and no dogs.

With that being said I would be cautious of installing the Allure if I had a medium to large size dog and go for a porcelain tile.
These are three smaller dogs, and except for one, all their toenails are kept relatively short. The third dog's nails grow so fast they're hard to keep up with, but at 8 pounds, his size should hopefully keep down any problems.

Porcelain (or really any other stone) is just too hard for my feet/back. Vinyl is cutting it close, but I loathe the sheet stuff, and the budget is tight. The floor that's in there now is in really bad shape and I'm having new counters put in, so I really want to rip it up and put something else down. But I'm the one doing it, so it's got to be a manageable job for me.

You should be okay as our cats are all larger than 8 lbs and they have not scratched the floor once.
