There are so many reasons to want slipcovers. One of the the most disheartening reasons to order slipcovers is from malicious pet mishaps. Mishaps for owner, not from the point of view of the animal! Scratching, chewing, digging on furniture for the joy of paying back their "parents" for leaving them alone is pretty common. Stress from storms or unexpected changes in their lives can send a good dog over the edge. It's acting out and as an owner, you take it personal. Rescued pets often come with a "past" that follows them for the rest of their lives. Patients is hard to find sometimes. I have heard of so many cures for this kind of ruinous behavior and those darned pets somehow find a way around preventive measures. For the love of an animal, we do things we would not do for anything or anyone else. I know a change with slipcovers can be a great cure for the furniture and an incentive to keep it that way. As for the pets, you will have to find their bad behavioral Kryptonite! Behavioral adjustment and trying new ways to make things more peaceable in the home can be a long journey. The most successful method I have heard about is Thunder Shirt!
