When to let them jump?
So I know pups aren't supposed to do any jumping up/down. I have been very careful about lifting Rocket out of the car, and we've been half lifting him in since the Suburban is so high and awkward for him to try to learn (he rides in the seat part so he can be harnessed). I say "UP!" and pat my hand, and he puts his front paws on and I lift his rear. He's 5 1/2 months, and probably close to 60lbs or so.
The other morning, I got him to jump UP on the bed, after the 3rd try. He didn't make the first two, but seemed game to try again. Is up jumping ok? He's getting a bit big for us to keep lifting up into the rig, LOL. When can he jump down? I have always been careful of my dogs and jumping, but at some point it's relatively ok, isn't it? Is there an age recommendation, like a year and a half?
