Have you converted to a clover lawn?

We're starting a new backyard from scratch in the spring (new home with only dirt). We want a backyard that is compatible with our dog, and a toddler.

The yard isn't large, about 1200sqft, and we're in hardiness zone 4a. We're planning on having trees around the outside for privacy, but we're not sure what to do with the rest of the yard. In our last house, our dog destroyed the grass, so we would like to avoid that happening again.
Is a clover lawn
the best option? We've considered artificial turf, but it's not cheap. Are there any other low maintenance options? Do you have any examples or pictures that would help us?
I've seen this question
, but am looking for more information.
