Hardwood floors are SLICK and $#@! growing joints... lots of slipping and falling at odd angles when zoomies occur...
We have engineered hardwoods (they don't scratch), and use the non-slip cushions under big area rugs in every room. Costco has 8x10 rugs for ~$100 (indoor/outdoor variety) which work well for us. Cheap enough to replace every few years, as needed.
Denna never chewed on anything we didn't give her... not sure how we lucked out on that, other than we always gave her tasty things to chew, made them interesting (i.e. played with her with them, held one end while she chewed the other, etc.), and kept her crated when unsupervised.
That's what I plan on doing. I do have rugs in most rooms now, but need runners for the hallways. He will be crated when unsupervised and with kids, dogs and myself, hopefully he will get enough stimulation and attention. Also chew toys and treats mixed in with obedience classes. At this point I think that's all I can do lol.
