Seeking recommendations for pet proof rugs (not wall-to-wall carpets) that feel and look great and really work

My boyfriend has hardwood floors throughout his place, including the bedroom. Between the two of us, we have four dogs; two large, one medium, and one small. The pitter patter of little paws on hardwood floors is really getting to him when he tries to sleep. He refuses to get a rug for the bedroom on the grounds that it will absorb general dog smell and the smell from any accidents that may happen. I've looked into stain-resistant rugs, but I'm not sure how well they work on keeping out odors.
I'm looking for a large rug, 10' x 10' or somewhere in that area. My criteria are that it looks like it belongs inside a home, not on a deck or in an office, it feels comfy on the tootsies, it will absorb the noise made by all the little paws, and it won't absorb smells or stains. I'm not looking for carpeting, just a rug. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
