Puppy Treads!

I was (not so) recently contacted about trying a product called Puppy Treads, which are meant to help with slipping on smooth surfaces. I don't have a puppy, but this sounded great because I had been concerned lately about how much Jacque seems to slip on the vinyl flooring in our house. For some reason it's just him and not Pippen! So I jumped at the chance to test them out (I was given these for free, but these are my own opinions).

They sent a bunch! I really started thinking about where I was going to put them. What would be the most helpful areas. I decided that it would be good to start with transition from carpet to vinyl. I put one of the puppy treads on the vinyl right after the carpet ends like in the picture below.

I think they've been really helpful so far! I have a bunch more to use and think I will add one more right behind these ones to help a little more. They're really easy to use. Just peel the backing off and smooth onto a clean surface. The instructions that came with them were short and sweet! These would be really great for stairs.
