Entry way rug for new Allure flooring

Hi - new member - love this site - so much great help and info...

Just had Allure flooring put in kitchen and entry way - love it! Absolutely gorgeous.

Reading thru the warranty it says no rubber backed rugs - I need something in the entry way as we live in a very sandy area - and have two dogs who of course track in sand and I sure don't want that grinding into my new floor.

What kind of rug can I get that will stay put? Thanks for any advice

One big help would be to have a better mat outside the door.
Wal-Mart has one that sort of looks like plastic grass. (not a low nap artificial indoor outdoor carpet.)
It has a built in pan for the dirt to set in.
Amazing how much dirt it can trap but still not look dirty untill you dump it out.
Home Depot and Lowes sell nonslip carpet tape that attaches to the carpet.
It's a tan color.
It's sold in the flooring dept.
It's never left a mark on my Allure or the hardwood floors.

Just don't put anything with a vinyl backing on top of it. You could have plasticizer migration.
