It's between the kitchen and the living room then? Hardwood floor, between the two most used rooms in a house....perfect for GSDs to laze about in. They would have line of sight to the rooms and could do their OCD protect/worry routine without having to move as much. I have a dog-centric home, so that's where my train of thought goes. Pics of the dog, dog beds and bowls...etc. Slap a ceiling fan up for air movement and hope the dogs take to it.
