Bare feet! We have dogs, so sometimes they shed and my feet get a little furry? But I still prefer bare feet!

No way my dogs do that.-After the puppies have been home with us, if we have gotten them form somewhere else, in only 3 days I have them fully house trained and going to the door when they need to poop outside! Easy to train them, so you don't have to worry! First, take the dog, even if it does not have to go, out every hour on the hour to go. Hard..but you have to commit totally for hat one day to it without fail. If it does, give it hugs and great praise. If not..or if it has an accident in the house, NO response. (Don't yell. Just...no response.) Just clean it up and try again the next hour. Dogs want your praise. They will train fast ..in about 3 days and after the first day..try every two hours. By the time you are at the end of 3 days, when the dog has to go poop, it will go to the door to let you know it has to go outside. (It may whine or bark. I have one basset hound that actually sits and knocks on the door frame to go out. They are all different?) But you have to be consistent and give the dog confidence you are paying attention. They will be 3 TOUGH days for you..but once over, your dog won't go in the house again! Hope this helps! I raise basset puppies and make it easier for the owners that are going to take them home. Our puppies are raised IN the house and on our laps right with us. I do not allow any of the puppies that we sell to go to thier new home UNTIL they are 100 percent house trained! They make nicer pets that way for the new families and we think it is the mature and responsible breeder thingy to do. Next time you look for a doog, if it's not trained in advance, just do the 3 day method and you'll never have this issue in the home again! Enjoy being bare-footed! LOL!

Yes, I just walk around bare footed in my house. In places where it is wooden floored, I wear a soft slipper.

hmm, no, in our house, you see, it's common to take off the shoes when entering the house. I think it was kinda customary to us Asians, to do this. So, in our house, I take off my shoes or sandals, and wear home slippers. I don't want to walk bare feet however, since it was quite cold in my feet, because having a tiles and all and we haven't got a carpet

I like to go barefoot inside. If it is winter, I will usually wear socks, but in the summer I will be barefoot. I just have to be careful, as I tend to be clumsy and stub my toes on things! lol

If you have hardwood floors, in your apartment, then its ok to wear shoes because it's easier to clean. If you have carpet floors, it's hard to clean the floors if you wear shoes, so it's better to walk barefoot on carpet floors. I have carpet floors in my apartment so thats what I would do. And when people come over to my house, I ask them to take off their shoes. I advise people before they come to my house so that they are aware that I have carpet floors, all of them don't mind because they too, have carpet floors in their homes.

Dear friend, I would be bare foot or may slipper and no shoes at indoors at my home. May indoor games may make me to put shoes. I like and feel comfortable while waking at home with bare foot as you quoted if the floor is clean.

Lol, nice question. I don't where my shoes because it's more free and you don't have to keep your feet all cramped up inside a tiny shoe. Barefoot all the way!

I always take my shoes off when I enter my apartment. It doesn't matter if the floor is clean or not, it's just the thing that I do. I feel that shoes are for outdoors and wearing them indoors makes the floor even dirtier. I don't even wear slippers, either. My guests can take their shoes off, also, unless their feet smell so bad. Then, I would want them to keep their shoes on.
