I would definitely go with cork. It's a great option for dogs, especially if you go with a natural color finish rather than a dark finish. Cork will actually self heal itself when there are scratches. Plus, dogs are able to get better traction on cork than hardwood or bamboo, and therefore they do not cause as many scratches from their paws slipping.

I work at a flooring showroom and carpet is absolutely the least expensive way to go and might be a nice cozy option for a bedroom. Cork might also be a good option and can be floated. Our cork starts at $3.95 per sf. But, everything we do is special order. If you are not real picky about color and pattern you may be able to find it for less in stock somewhere.

Marmoleum click is about $6.50 sq. ft. (material, not installation) It would be a great option for a kitchen for someone who has dogs. There is a cork backing, so you get some of the benefits of a cork floor (eco friendly, easier on your back than a hard surface), but not the problems with it not holding up to dogs like you do if you went with just a cork floor. The click is much much easier to install than sheet marmoleum and you can have fun with patterns.
