Give me your poor, your tired, your squished cushions, yearning to be firm.

The cushions on our family room sofa suffers from chronic dog-induced squashing. Is there any remedy aside from getting a new sofa?

We have a nice sofa in the living room which the dogs know to avoid. But since even dogs need to kick back every now and then, we're not too strict about them lounging on the family room sofa. One of them likes to perch on the top of the backrest cushions, and since these are big and pillowlike, they don't stand tall and firm like they once did.
Since the sofa is otherwise fine (and has a matching loveseat), I'd rather not replace it yet. But I would like to somehow restore the cushions to their original glory, if you have any ideas on how to do it.
One other thing... As far as I can tell, the cushions are sealed. There's no obvious way to remove the existing stuffing or add some more, short of cutting them open and sewing them back up again.
