    Default Bulldog Friendly Furniture.

    I wanted to get some input about furniture, we have soft cloth couches that our baby has destroyed. What kind of material do you have that holds up to your bully? Any ideas or recommendations? We are in the process of redecorating, putting down laminate and we need new furniture. Thanks for the input.

    Well, I have a leather sectional in one living room and a Micro Fiber sofa in the other. The leather couch for me is sooo much easier to clean. I can just wipe the hair off and clean it with leather conditioner.
    The Micro Fiber is a nightmare to clean. I really dont let him get on it though, but if he sneaks on it, cleaning the hair off is a real pain. Those little hairs really get in there and are tough to get out.
    Now if he is scratching or chewing on it thats another story......

    Leather, leather, leather, leather! Trust me!

    Tell sales rep at the furniture store that you are looking for leather that cleans up easily and will withstand dog wear and tear, including nails - not every leather (particularly not the most expensive kinds) stands up to dogs!

    Our couch has been jumped on, peed on, puked on, rolled on, had Desitin smeared over it, poop smeared on it, shed on, and everything in between that comes with having two bullies. 2 minutes of wiping down returns it to beautiful condition in no time!

    My girls don't get on the furniture, unless one is sitting in my lap, so guess I have no suggestions. Our furniture is sort of a corduroy type stuff and it's holding up fine. We have grandkids, so it's seen lots of action!

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Bertie loves furniture! She ate the bed! I used to have a beautiful bedroom set, but now it looks like something that was made with wood that the beavers chewed on. I will take some pictures and post of it...it's hard to believe that my sweet little girl could have done it! On a side note, her treeth are so pretty and white! LOL

    My couch isn't the best...we bought it when we had our dalmatian and we didn't let him on it. Enter Vegas. He abuses my couch and my couch pillows. I've shared this photo many times...but I'm sharing it again. I would suggest leather. Easier to wipe down. We have leather seats in the Yukon and I love it. Wish I could wipe down this pillow as easily.

    It's not easy finding the right material, what works best for us is a cross between a heavy close knit courdiroy and a burlap. Make sure that it is scotchguarded. I hate leather because this old man kinda likes to lounge around the house sometimes in shorts and t-shirts. Weeeeeeeell, iffin you
    do that........you'll sweat on leather and stick to it like a magnet to a fridge. You'll have to peel yourself off your furniture. I hates that!!!!!

    Here you go Libra926, not sure if it looks like a beaver did it or termites! And then you see little Bertie looking all innocent!
    It actually doesn't look so bad in these pics...but in person it really does look alot worse.

    She really is a good girl! I have to give her rawhides to chew on (only when I am home) and that seems to have fixed her chewing fixation. The first time I saw that bed, I almost had a heart attack! And Bertie was just there looking so happy!

    I have leather couches, recliners, and 2 microfiber sets of theatre seats. The microfiber is hard to keep clean of slobber, the leather furniture is easy to clean. I have a wood chair i sit on at my computer my little nut chewed on the leg. I keep a close eye on him otherwise which is a job in and of itself. The less wood exposed, the better.
