Tile floors grout is coming up where dogs run


Hello, I have a two room each being roughly 9x9 with 12" tiles throughout. I remember when laying it down I think we had the mix to dry or something but I dont really remember it was 7 years ago. Anyway, we have 2 German Shepherd dogs and they always run through and around the two rooms (Thy are only separated by a tiny wall) and where they go they have literally tore a lot of the grout down to the mortar. Should this or could this happen? Next I want to regrout but I need to know what tool out there is the easiest for grout removal because I might end up doing the whole floor. The lines are 1/4" and how deep do I have to take the grout down?

Thanks!

This tool or one of the cheaper brands that can do essentially the same thing.

Could be several reason including poorly mixed (too watery) or maybe it was the pre-mixed acrylic stuff. Remove at least ⅔ of the depth. Let us know what you plan to use.

Jaz, even if it was a good tile job could big dogs like those running through there all the time tear the grout out? Thanks!
