Question Ohhhhh QUESTION!! <3

How many of you allow your dogs on the couch??

It's always been a rule in our house, that our dogs are not allowed on the couch, Killian thinks were just plain evil because our cats are, because they are tiny little things. If I had a five pound Chihuahua I probably would let it cuddle on the couch, but my pups are SO DANG BIG!! Killian is 68lbs at 6 months, and Jazzi is 72lbs at 5 years old..... <3 My big loves.....

Guilty. Rennie gets up and snuggles with me. She's so sweet I couldn't possibly tell her no! Ridley just figured how to get up on the love seat. He always brings a toy and from the way he sits you can tell he's quite proud of himself.

We should make them stop but we can't seem to bring ourselves to do it!

My GSD is only allowed on the couch if he is invited. Normally when hubby is sound asleep on the couch, I 'invite' Hondo on the couch.

No Wolfie is not allowed on my furniture, except the couch in the kids playroom. It smells anyways, and my 19 year old son doesn't even notice. LOL

no pooches allowed on the couch here light colored couches and dogs don't mix haha. However I do allow Dodger on my bed, but only when he's invited, if he jumps on without permission and he gets off right when I tell him too he has to do puppy push-ups in order to earn his right to be back on my bed. If he takes his sweet time getting off he's not allowed on the bed that night.

On carpet? Does that mean certain rooms are off limits? That is kinda the way it is for us, because the upstairs is off limits, and upstairs is all carpet. <3 Downstairs is nothing but hardwood or tile.....

Same here with my pups, we have light tan couches, and were the same way about the bed, Jazmine is only allowed to share when Hubby is out of town and she needs permission! <3

My husband started it with our last dog. So yes, however we have a two couch covers so while one is in the wash the other can be on the sofa. Our dog seems to run warm, and does not like to sit next to us, too much body heat. So when we are on, she is off.
