Are there any recommended manufacturers the make an oil or water based satin or semi finish product that are durable enough to eliminate scratching from dog claws?

I do not believe there is a finish that exists that can stand up to scratching from a dog's nails.  It is very important to regularly trim a dog's nails and try and to prevent the dogs from running on the floor.  I know that can be very difficult being a dog owner myself.  I would recommend the following: NO playing ball, tug-o-war or rough play on the wood floor. Place permanent or temporary rugs in the areas where scratching is the worst to prevent further damage.
