HELP! The English Bulldog drool factory...

Posted by   + Show Post

named Bella is a nightmare with my sofas.  I have always kept the animals off the sofas, but my 90LB English Bulldog knows that the minute we leave the house it's fair game.

How do I know she's been on the sofa? Other than the dog hair rug that covers where she laid, she drools. Worse than a teething baby.

EVERY. DARNED. TIME. we leave I have to come home and clean the sofa cushions where her drool face has laid on it. It's only one sofa in my house that she is in love with.

We bought her a beautiful (and expensive) dog bed that is sized to fit the Titanic in hopes that she'd get the hint and sleep on it. Nope. She'll begrudgingly use it when we are at home or in her line of sight. Once we are out of sight? She's having a paty on the sofa. Right now I am keeping the sofa covered with a red furry Christmas blanket that ALMOST matches and we've taken to putting the wooden TV trays on the sofa whenever no one is sitting in it. Honestly, it looks like crap and I really hate it.

SO... I am looking for a solution. I am not keen on shock training so when I started looking I found Scat Mats, but I'm not keen on shock training. She's a big baby! Or I should say I am a big baby where she's concerned!!! SO... I found a sonic alternative called Sofa Scram. Anyone use it? Or any suggestions?

 Once she has experienced an aluminum foil couch a time or two, you'll only need the tiniest of square to remind her not to jump on it.  lol


Quoting MamaSnaps:

Hmmmm... I am gonna try this tonight when we go out. I might go broke buying aluminum foil! That's kind of the same idea as the Scram Mat only it lets out an 85 decible noise.

They've eaten  tinfoil before, but I think that was because it had food on it!

Quoting Linds2Horse:

The most effective and humane method is to tuck aluminum foil across the top of our couch cushions. Bella won't like the sound or texture of the aluminum foil so she'll quickly get down.
