    Default Tips?

    Any tips on how to get dog hairs out of a fabric sofa? I must spend half my life brushing and hoovering the sofa?

    I use blankets on my couch, but for stuck hairs I use duct tape wrapped around my hand sticky side out.

    Lots of blankets; perferrably the quilted types and lint rollers, duct tape, a wet cloth, I have used a tarp under the blankets but the girls don't like the tarp. We have found that less is best so we are down to three chairs and a loveseat, the sofa was overrated and once the girls did their teething on it the cushions just weren't quit the same. It had to go! Good luck!!

    The easiest cure is to get a leather or faux leather sofa

    Problem solved!

    lol I'm hoping to get a new leather sofa next year when she's finished her chewing stage, my girl likes to sneakly chomp on the bottom corner of the sofa when she thinks we're not looking

    A really great trick is to get those sticky label holders that you put on the front of UPS or FED EX packages, the ones you peel and put on the package. They really do the trick with bully hair.

    We are hopefully getting a leather one next year when rubes is out of her chewing stage, she likes to chew the corner of the sofa when she thinks we're not looking :-)

    The little stinker! I love when they think they are being sneaky. We have had the same leather sectional for about 10yrs now. So it went through many puppy stages. We are getting a new one in January and hopefully there will not be any incidents.

    Oh she is very sneaky, she likes to pretend she's playing with her toys, she'l gradually push them to the corner of sofa then when she thinks we're not looking she'l start on the corner lol they are great arnt they and so full of character, our sofa is only about 3yrs old but it's a nightmare to get the hairs off it, I've got to admit I don't want to keep her off the sofa as I love having bully cuddles - fabric and dogs just don't go together
