This question depends on a couple of factors, namely, the weight of the dog and the edge of its nails. The heavier a dog is, the more pressure that their feet/nails can generate. This, coupled with the edge of the nail produces the scratch potential of the dog. If its nails are squared off or jagged, the scratch potential is significantly increased. If they are rounded/oval, the scratch potential is significantly reduced.
