What all pet parents want is for their furry best friends to be as happy and comfortable as possible. As pet owners, we want to do everything we can to keep them cozy in the cold winter months or help them stay laid-back and lazy on those hot summer days.

However, pet owners should also know what the ideal rugs for pet-friendly households are. As our playful fur babies will run through muddy patches and bring in dirt or have shedding fur that will sit on our carpets, durable and hard-wearing rugs that are easy to clean are a must-have for pet owners' homes. Vinyl rugs are the perfect option in this sense, as they'll survive chewing and scratching, they're easy to maintain, and they won't collect fur since they're not piled.

To help you make the perfect rug choice for you and your pet, we've compiled a list of our 7 beautiful vinyl rugs perfect for pet lovers.
