If you have dogs in your house, you’ve likely had to deal with some issues surrounding your dog and your furniture. The reality is that dogs are difficult to keep off furniture for several reasons. Not only can it be physically challenging, but we also cherish the bonding time spent snuggled up together on the sofa.
Dogs aren’t quite as gentle as us though, so it’s important to make sure you dog-proof your furniture to prevent damage. In this post, We’ll be going over the best way to protect your furniture from your dogs, while also making sure that you can keep your sofas looking stylish.
Understanding the Problem
If you’ve experienced problems with your dog damaging your furniture, just know that you’re not alone. It’s a common problem that almost all dog owners face to some extent. We’re going to touch on some of the common problems you’ve likely encountered.
Dogs Scratching or Damaging Furniture
When dogs scratch at the furniture, it can cause significant damage that can either be irreparable, or expensive to repair. This can be incredibly frustrating for you. Luckily, we have some ways to help prevent the damage if your dog is a scratcher.
You’ve invested in some nice furniture for your home, but now it’s starting to smell bad because of how much time your dog spends on the couch. Dogs can be dirty, and sometimes they shed a lot. When this happens, this hair and dirt gets worked into the sofa fabric causing it to smell bad. We do have a separate guide on preventing dog hair from taking over your furniture.
Wet Couches from Dogs
Another common problem dog owners face is that their couches get wet from their dogs. This could be caused from dog slobber, or could be caused by your dog jumping on the couch immediately after a bath. Either way, it’s not fun to clean a wet couch caused by your dogs.
Accidents happen, especially if you’re trying to train a puppy. Even though they’re expected, that doesn’t mean we like to clean them up. If your dog has an accident on the couch, it’s not only difficult to clean, but let’s face it, it’s not a fun job.
The Misconceptions about Sofa Covers
Before I go into why sofa covers are an excellent solution to all of these problems, I want to go over some common misconceptions about sofa covers.
Sofa covers have changed over time, and they’re certainly not what they used to be. You’ve probably seen the sofa covers that were created with the sole purpose of being functional, and lack some serious style. They would help prevent furniture damage, but they were an eye-sore.
Here’s an example:
The New Age Sofa Covers: A Perfect Solution
Let’s throw away those misconceptions and talk about a new age, modern sofa cover. We know the pain points that people experience with traditional sofa covers, so we created a sofa cover that is both functional and stylish. Not only that, we made it incredibly user-friendly as well.
First, let’s talk about functionality. Our dog couch covers are incredibly durable. They’re created to handle tough situations like dog accidents and scratching. They’re an effective solution for protecting your furniture from your dogs.
Next, the style. This is an area that we stand out. We have a variety of style and color options to choose from. All of our sofa covers are modern, but you have the choice between different patterns.

Our covers are easy to use too. Installing and washing them are a breeze. They’re created in a way to give you the best user experience possible.
The Importance of Material Choice for Your Sofa Cover
Not all sofa covers are created equal. It’s important that you do your research on the materials used in sofa covers, and what that means for durability and washing capabilities.
Our sofa covers are made of soft stretch jacquard fabric, 85% polyester and 15% spandex material. Using these materials allows them to be high stretch, soft, wrinkle resistant, durable and long lasting. It also allows them to be washed in the washing machine, which is a big added bonus.
How to Choose the Right Sofa Cover
The first thing you need to do when deciding which sofa cover to go with is to figure out what’s important to you. Write down your list, then find a sofa cover that checks all the boxes.
For example, here are some things that might be important to you:
The biggest thing is finding the right sofa cover that fits your specific needs. Once you find that perfect sofa cover, you’ll be right on your way to protecting your furniture, while also maintaining a style that fits your home.
Maintenance and Cleaning
Even though you’ll have your sofa protected, you’ll still want to make sure you take proper care of your sofa covers. We make our sofa covers user-friendly and easy to care for. The biggest thing is making sure you keep them clean. After all, this is one of the biggest reasons sofa covers are so effective.
Vacuuming your sofa covers every few days is a great way to keep up with the dirt and hair that your dogs are leaving behind.
Another easy way to maintain the cleanliness of your sofa covers is to simply throw them in the washing machine. Make sure you put the washing machine on a light setting. Once they’re washed, tumble dry them or let them air dry, and then you’ll be good to go.
