The 15 Best Entryway Rugs For Dogs

Dogs are called “man’s best friend” for a reason. They are known for providing plenty of unconditional love, companionship, and affection to their families. But along with all that, they do tend to provide plenty of muddy paws, flying fur, and slobbering drool too. Many pet owners have resigned themselves to thinking that they simply cannot have a nice, stylish home because none of it pairs with a dog. While not everything can be dog proof, there are hundreds upon hundreds of dog friendly rugs out there that are made to stand up to the joys and woes of pet ownership. Each room could have its own article on dog friendly rugs, but for the moment, we’ve compiled 15 of our best entryway rugs for dogs to show just how versatile, stylish, and durable these rugs are.
