The 5 Best Dog Training Flooring Options

We’ve highlighted the top five dog training flooring options at Greatmats to help you get started.

1. Dog Agility Interlocking Mats

Dog Agility Interlocking Mats for Dog Training

The Dog Agility Mats Interlocking Tiles are specifically designed to provide superior traction and comfort for both dogs and trainers, so they deliver outstanding performance. Made of dense yet lightweight foam, these tiles provide support, cushion, and anti-fatigue benefits underfoot. While they’re soft and comfortable, they feature a durable surface texture that maximizes grip and traction while still being gentle on paws. The combination of comfort and safety for dogs and trainers makes them a first-rate choice for dog training.

Designed for indoor use, these interlocking tiles can be easily installed, and they're portable, too. Each tile connects with a puzzle-style edge, so they pop together with minimal effort, and there’s no need for glue or adhesive. Each tile measures 3x3 feet, so while they’re conveniently sized, they will also quickly cover a larger facility floor. The included interlocking border pieces create a clean, finished edge for a polished look. Once installed, the mats can be vacuumed or damp mopped as needed for easy maintenance.

2. Rubber Flooring Rolls 3/8 Inch 10 percent Color Geneva

Since the rubber is sold by the square foot, you can order the exact amount that you need, saving you money and reducing product waste. The flooring can be easily cleaned with a damp mop. It’s suitable for temporary or permanent installations, and you can choose from 18 color fleck options to customize the look of your facility.

Customers love training dogs outside on the Artificial Grass Turf UltimatePet. As wonderful as the idea of real grass is, there are all sorts of issues with it in reality. Dogs and puppies love to dig and tear up grass, which makes maintenance a never-ending chore. With these artificial grass dog training floor mats, however, one can maintain a perfect lawn without any of the hassles. Artificial Grass Turf rolls won't be torn or dug up, and never need trimming or mowing.

Each and every fiber of UltimatePet Turf rolls is constructed to yield a superior thatch that is both soft and supportive, tough and comfortable. Plus, each fiber features UV inhibitors to keep artificial grass vibrant and green over the years. Further, these outdoor dog training mats boast a 100 percent permeable backing that is guaranteed to drain cleaner than any other synthetic or real grass. The artificial turf rolls come with an 8-year non-prorated warranty.

You can install the turf over concrete or a compacted aggregate base, and no infill is needed, which can save you installation costs. The turf is sold by the square foot, allowing you to order precisely the amount that you need and cutting down on extra expense and waste.
