We use bed sheets at home, and on the sofa in the camper. They are easy to buy and you can color coordinate. FWIW my mutt is a short hair so sheds like crazy. He is a Jack Russell/Walker Hound cross.

Get the cheaper "throws"....for furniture. Or train dogs to stay on floor.

We picked up a big pre-sewn piece of denim at a fabric store (already had the hems sewn in around all four sides). It's 6' wide and 12' long. Cost us $10 (what a bargain)! I drape it over the couch, tucking it in at the bottom in the front and between the bottom of the upright cushions and the back of the seat cushions. All of the extra fabric hangs over the top and behind the back of the couch. It makes for a nice looking very durable cover that also goes well with our interior colors. It's easy to remove and shake off if it gets dog hair or sand on it (which it does). And if it gets dirty, it's long enough to turn around and let the dirty part hang behind the couch. At the end of our trips, it comes off and goes into the wash, then it's clean and ready for the next trip. We've had it for at least 12 years and it works great!

Our dog is an old girl now, but when she was young and tempted to make herself more comfy when we were out, we simply put stuff on top of the bed and dinette seats to discourage her. This worked pretty well.
We have a Boston Terrier and a retired racing Greyhound. We too do not allow the pups on the furniture in the AS or at home. At home, we crate them but in the AS cannot fit both of their crates. In our old camper, we were not too worried and only crated the Boston due to the smaller crate. The Greyhound was okay as long as the blinds were closed. If he couldn't see out, he wouldn't get up too much.

Now with the AS, we are trying to come up with a way to keep him off. Yes, we have Ultra Leather, however, we still don't want them on the furniture.

What other ideas do people have for keeping them off other than just putting stuff on the seats. We like to keep the camper tidy and would rather not have "stuff" around just as a dog deterrent!

Protecting upholstery from doggies

My wife made one out of a fitted bottom sheet, which she altered to fit the cushions. The fitted part goes under the cushions further than a fitted sheet fits on a mattress, since the two cushions can be lifted up and the fitted part put on, then the cushions can be pressed back into place, making a very secure fit. The dog learned very quickly that that was her spot, and is the only place she jumps up on inside the trailer. This leads to some minor conflicts when some human wants to sit or sleep there, but she also has her regular bed under the dinette, and since she mainly just wants to be around people, she is pretty agreeable about giving up her spot if someone else wants to use it.

We also have ultra leather, but seeing how dirty the fitted sheet gets, I'm happy to just be able to take it off and wash it when it needs it.

Our pets stay at home. They prefer it that way.
