We have our dog on ours most every weeks for the last 4 years, we have never had a problem. but we just put a 2 mtrs carpet runner ( Dunelm) over to tubes to give her more grip and added protection.

I believe with the other materials, you won't even notice the dog has been on board!

10+yrs of taking the dog out on Hypalon and PVC SIBs inc many air floor models... no problems. Don't give it a second thought.

True, but with the recent tetchiness I thought it safer to be clear Better to stick to what I know

Dobermann's and Manchester Terriers willingly suffer being bounced around in a RIB for a dog-treat at the end of the day.
