Dog Perch

An_254227 posted:
We have a brand new sectional couch that our dog loves to lay on the back of and look out the window. We are ok with him being on the couch but since he does it all the time the cushion is loosing form. Does anyone know of a dog perch station or something that can have him lay on something over the couch but not on the couch. It was a very expensive couch and I dont want it ruined.
Thank you

The size of the pet would be a determining factor in trying to design an alternative to the couch. You may need to consider rearranging the furniture so a sturdier piece of less expensive furniture is positioned next to the window.
