I put rubber backed rugs on the hardwood to stop the sliding (to save my floors, not the dogs). The tile kitchen they pinball through on the way outside/to food/out of kennels). If their hips are good the sliding floors won't hurt them, and will build environmental confidence. I (quietly) laugh when people say their dog is scared of slick floors... if my dogs were, they'd not survive in my house lol. there is no carpeting.
