I love living with dogs. Their unconditional love and acceptance is amazing, and I feel blessed every day by the two crazy mutts that call me dog mom.
What I don’t necessarily care for is dog hair everywhere. This is especially true because a few months ago, we got brand new living room furniture that cost a small fortune, and we were faced with the question do we continue to allow the dogs on the couch?
I mean, let’s be honest. In addition to the shedding, dogs can carry dirt and germs in from outdoors. Their claws can snag furniture. And I don’t know about yours, but one of my dogs likes to compulsively lick wherever she’s laying.
I didn’t want all this abuse on my new furniture, but my dogs are family and I didn’t want to keep them off the couch. That meant I had to find a solution.
I looked at a lot of furniture covers, but I didn’t find anything I was super impressed with. I didn’t want to hide my beautiful new furniture; I just wanted to protect it in a beautiful way. Honestly, it shouldn’t be so hard for a dog mom to have a nice home.
That’s when I found the large bolstered furniture protector from Solvit.
The bolstered style combines furniture protection and comfort for pets. The generously-filled bolster provides a cushion on three sides and serves as a backstop to keep pet hair from touching the upholstery. It’s also easily removed for cleaning or when guests arrive.
Because Nike is a big girl (about 70 pounds), I chose the large furniture protector in a cocoa brown color, which complements our furniture so nicely.
The Sta-Put™ straps keep the furniture protector in place so that it doesn’t move when our big girl lays down on it. She’s a nester, though, and she loves to “fluff up” her spot before she lies down, and sometimes the protector moves around a little bit but not enough for concern.
The bolstered furniture protector is great because it allows the dogs up on the couch with us, but it protects our investment from damage and dirt in a gorgeous way. I am really glad we found this and that it works so well in our home.
I think Nike is glad, too! One of her favorite activities is snuggling on the couch at night with her daddy, and now she’s able to do that with the Large Bolstered Furniture Protector from Solvit!
