If it was just me, I would allow it. But I hate it when visitors get 'mugged' by the household pets.
Seems reasonable. I was going to make the fourth choice: "The dog ate all my furniture!" I can imagine when Ellie is better trained then I'll relax my rules to how you have it. It's clearly not done your dogs any harm!Jean;639 said:I allow it! But if I say "Off!" then they get off the Bed or Sofa. If I say "Go Lie Down!" then they leave my guests alone. Pretty simple
LOL to your fourth choice "I don't own any furniture! "
hehe I do the same sort of thing when the dog steals the doorways or the stairs. I just start to walk into her, or pretend to stand on her. She now moves like lightening!Jean;732 said:In the beginning, if my dog was on the couch and I wanted to sit, I would pretend to sit on her. I would apply light pressure and she would move off the couch immediately. Now if I go to sit they immediately move on the other side. :msngrin:
