I have a one and half year old basenji. She rips furniture up. I lost a complete living room and is working on the new couch. I used to have to crate her at night, but the last two weeks i did not and all was great until a couple of days ago she started on the couch where i sit. Well can this be fixed or is it hopeless, and the cost, i am a well off person, but i do take good care of my dog. But i'm at the end of my rope.

Sounds like either separation anxiety or boredom. I have a min pin that did this till he turned 3. I have to crate him when I leave the house or he will chew up my couch. Now that he is older, that has subsided thank goodness. Maybe try crating when gone with some good chewy bones/toys.

Try taking your dog out for longer walks and get it to run, when they are tired they are less likely to get into trouble.
