I once found a motherlode of destroyed furniture and toys and stuffing snow storms on the web, youtube or funny pictures or something.
So you're not alone. I have partially destuffed cushion...
I would just dedicate the couches to the dogs and keep them as long as you need the dogs in the gararge...
Can't be sure about the Meika thing. Dogs will do the guilty act even when they didn't do anything. And they might do it because they know the other dog has been naughty. There was an experiment done with rats or monkeys (forget which) - where if any rat went on a ladder, all the rats would be punished (hosed with cold water). Then they introduced a new rat - and the new rat was attacked by the other rats any time it went near the ladder. Ie the rats had learned if one of them stuffed up - they'd all be punished. It's possible that's where this dog was at.
I'm off to buy some crates tomorrow because we've got two very expensive motorbikes in the garage and I really can't trust them not to chew them now.. We had the couches forming a barrier against the 2 walls in the garage and the motorbikes inside the barrier but it doesn't seem like it was much of a barrier haha!
Pohm killed her bed/sofa about 2 weeks ago, looked very similar to your photo. I didnt keep it, as she'd continue to empty of stuffing which was all over the garden! grrrr
Also didnt let her have it, as thought it would encourage the destructiveness of MY things, and didnt want the behaviour spreading.
Bloody dogs! they are a pain in the butt sometimes. But in the scheme of things, this is the ONLY destructive behaviour she's had since a pup. So cant really complain here. Ive had far worse in previous pups.
