Putting above ground pool on uneven concrete (pavers) How do I cushion?

What would be the best and affordable thing to put under our pool to cushion the bottom and prevent the un-even paver corners from cutting into it. I live in central Florida so it will need to withstand hot humid conditions.
It is a 16 Ft by 48 above ground metal frame structure pool.
The concrete area is 18x18.
I also have concern over my dog possibly cutting into the liner when jumping in or out. She is a husky/wolf and can definitely make the jump. Do you think the liner will hold up on the sides around the top or is there something we can do to help?

I've used 1/4" fanfold insulation in the past between the dirt and my liner. 2 bundles covered the area under my 18' pool. Home Depot/Lowes has it for about $50 per bundle.
