Saving New laminate from dog
Over this thanksgiving weekend, I'm installing Golden Select Black Oak laminate flooring. Everything's good so far, however, I was wondering how everyone is dealing with a senior doggie and laminate? My girl is 14, has a heart condition but is in great health (according to the vet). Recently she's developed a bit of seperation anxienty, so now when I head off to school (for some reason she doesn't do it when I go to work which is equal hours to school) she piddles on the floor. Now I know moisture + wood = buckling, but how bad can it get? Also she has a new habit, that whenever she wants water she basically flips her bowl (existing water in it or not), so what's the best thing to put under or over her bowl so the water doesn't go on the floor.
FYI: Can't move the bowl because our kitchen is small (I mean tiny) and there isn't a place to put it without being in the way, and we lack a mudroom/laundry room space. So it's gotta stay in the dining room with the intended laminate flooring.
