Has your dog taken possession of your couch, leaving you stranded on an uncomfortable chair? Just like you, your pooch likes to get comfortable, and snuggling on the sofa is just too good to miss. You can learn how to keep your dog off furniture, but it may not be as simple as you think. Some people don’t mind sharing their furniture with their four-legged companions. On the other hand, some owners don’t like seeing and cleaning their dogs’ hairs from the couch and are firm believers that dogs belong on the floor. Whether you are starting with a "no furniture" rule with a new puppy or trying to train an older offender, the following tips will help you learn how to keep your dog off furniture. Keep in mind that it may take longer to train a dog that has already developed this bad habit. This is because you'll need to break the old habit and create a new one.
