We have not found hat true in our house. Our dogs, and people, preferentially take the carpeted ones due to slippery steps.

The Stair Runner Store - Creative Carpet & Rug LLC
We are in the stair runner business and find that many of our customers say that wooden stairs are slippery and choose to add a runner to their staircase, often after a family member has fallen. Just as often, we have customers who need a runner because their dog cannot navigate the stairs, has fallen or in some cases has gotten hurt. This project page on our Houzz profile includes photos of some of our four legged customers:
