    We have couch covers. Use them all the time & wash them every 2 weeks - keeps smells, fur, etc off!

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    If couch covers don't work, get a different wife!

    Bicarbonate of soda takes away smell, not great on black fabric though... but on lighter fabric it works. Sprinkle it and leave for a while and then vacuum it up. Try on a smaller area first in case it leaves residues. I sometimes mix a little fabric softner with water and spray on the fabrics in the house if we're having guests over, that also works but only for the time being.

    And truthfully I think she'll get used to the smell after a while... We have 5 dogs, I'm sure our house smells but I can't smell it, nor do I care if it smells, dogs smell...

    Baking Soda definitely works. I use it in my freezer, and it absorb odors. Didn't think of keeping a box out as well. Gonna try that.

    I'm also crazy about my home smelling like dogs. Only thing that works for me is vacuuming all the time, keeping throws/blankets on the furniture, and brushing the dogs every couple of days.
    In other words, dogs and house need to be cleaned.

    But like Petra said, after a while, you may not even smell anything.

    You've been given great advice above. You'll never ever get rid of all the dog smell, but you can minimize it and the fur by keeping on top of the cleaning. We bath our guys once every 2 weeks, and I rinse them with equal parts of warm water and white vinegar after their baths. It keeps them smelling nicer longer in between their baths, and is good for their skin and coat. I vacuum, sweep and Swiffer on Wednesday's, and I Vacuum, sweep, Swiffer, and damp mop every Sunday.
    I don't have a problem with the furniture smelling because we have leather furniture, so it's very easy to keep clean, I wipe the furniture down with a soft microfibre cloth and I use warm water, a drop of Dawn dish soap, and a little bit of white vinegar. It cleans and dusts the furniture at the same time. I'm sure you can minimize the smell of your dog by giving him regular baths, brushing him, rinsing him with warm water and vinegar, covering your furniture where he lies with a blanket, throw cover or towel that can be washed regularly, or get him used to sleeping on a dog bed and wash it regularly.

    We bath Effie every 2-3 weeks, we also use Febreze HEAVY DUTY on the furniture That seems to help a lot. We use Arm & Hammer extra strength carpet deodorizer before we vacuum. We have Effie, 2 cats, and a hamster, so it's impossible to rid the house of pet smell, but these few things seem to help.

    I agree though- after a while, you won't smell it anymore. Effie is our first dog, and we noticed the smell immediately. A few weeks in, we didn't smell it at all anymore. My little sister came to visit for the summer and was laying on the couch and mentioned the "dog smell" LOL. So we bought the Febreze Heavy Duty, and she told us that it helped, haha.

    Good luck!

    You could just be like me. I have terrible dog allergies, so I'm always stuffy. No dog smell! No smells at all actually!
