I've had dogs act jealous off and on over the years ...
I've never had one jealous over not being allowed on the furniture. Generally all the Hooligans have always been allowed on the furniture (except my bed) ... EXCEPT for BO who had serious temperament problems and had a lot of restrictions including being banned from sitting on the furniture because he'd attempt to guard it from the other Hooligans (this was the least of his problems, NILIF helped him a lot but no house rules could be bent by him).
My second exception is when I'm sitting on the couch the Hooligans are allowed to share it with me by age order (Slider ... Bruiser ... Faith) ... if Slider wants up, whoever is on it has to get off ... then if Bruiser wants up Faith has to get off!!! Might not work for everybody, but this method works for me.
Same with petting/showing affection ... if I'm petting one of the Hooligans, hugging him, whatever, the others are NEVER allowed to interfere!!!
Gayle ... Slider, Bruiser & Faith
