Dogs are drawn to your big, comfy couch, especially if you and other members of your family are sitting on it. However, your pet can also bring along lots of dog hair with them as well as whatever mud or dirt they picked up on their most recent walk.
Furniture pet protection covers can be a good option. They come in different forms and sizes. Partial covers will cover a section of your couch, which you can designate as your dog’s couch area. You can also find waterproof pet furniture protectors that can shield your furniture from puppy accidents or drool.
Purchasing a pet furniture protector might not be enough to keep your pet from damaging your furniture. If you buy a partial cover, you’ll need to train your dog to only use that section of the couch. Placing dog toys on that portion of the couch can attract your dog. Another good option is to place dog beds and bedding on that portion of the couch so your dog can feel extra comfortable.
