Need new carpet
 
We have two rowdy medium size dogs. The current carpet we have is tougher than nails, I think it's Olefin and it's a very low pile loop. Frankly, it's commercial grade and rough! Don't be sliding into 3rd base with this stuff or you'll loose alot of hide. It's held up for 13 yrs and looks new...we just want something a little softer....like most folks have :). But, it still has to be durable. So far, Nylon in a low pile or a fiber known as Dupont Sorona Smartstrand (polymer from corn) from Mohawk are the two toughest and the Smartstrand is very stain resistant. Does anyone have experience with Smartstrand?

The biggest factor in making pile type carpet last is the padding. Don't use the cheap foam padding. Get rebond padding. Rebond is the foam from auto dashboards. You will get a lot of use and be glad you paid a little more in 15 years or so.
