What is better paving slabs or printed concrete

I am looking to have my small back yard re-laid. I have 2 dogs so it will require frequent cleaning. What would be better paving slabs or printed concrete?

I would suggest paving slabs or mono blocks, both would stand up better to frequent cleaning. also drainage would be better. Imprint concrete is fine but it totally seals the area and if not don't to a high standard it tends to crack.

I would go with stone paving and have it pointed not just brushed sand as over time the sand washes out allowing the urine of the dog to soak underneath and smell.

Monoblock as it won’t stain like the slabs and it doesn’t hold water like imprint concrete and if you feel like jet washing it it won’t take off the lacquer as it would with imprint concrete
