I am refinishing my oak floors with a Golden Pecan stain. I have 2 labs that give the floors heavy use. What is the best sealant for me to use? I have heard shellac. Does it water stain and is it better than anything else?

I would recommend something with aluminum oxide for its premium durability, but please realize these are wood floors and soft in naturer compared to harder floors, so performance may be limited with the abuse pets can put on them.
