My Maltese digs at my sofa. The sofa is maybe three years old and it's ruined and has been for a while. I'll post a pic later. It's really bad! But I'm hesitant to get another one because I don't want to have the same thing happen. I'm just wondering if anyone has a dog that digs and has a type of sofa that it won't tear up. This one had a striped pattern on it so there's more to catch with her nails but I'm wondering if I got a leather one if that would just get torn up too. Some suggested microfiber might be good. I tried putting a big duvet over the sofa and tucking it in and she just digs it away and starts tearing up the cusions again.
