Bamboo vs Hardwood with Pets?

mhwv05February 28, 2014

I've seen several threads regarding hardwood and pets... but what about bamboo?

Everything I read "claims" bamboo is harder than any other hardwoods, is this actually true? Can you actually go by the Janka ratings on Bamboo since it is technically not a hardwood?

We have two 80 lbs. dogs and looking to get rid of the carpet on our main level. Debating between hardwoods or bamboo. Any thoughts?

The bamboo might dent less.
