Who Lets Their GS's ....

Who lets their shepherds on the furniture & on the bed to sleep with them?

Why do you let them?

I never let mine on anything but their dog beds and blankets.
I don't want hair on where I am sitting or sleeping. Plus I think it helps with training. I have to have some rules....LOL

I am just curious to see what you all have to say about this.

Re: Who Lets Their GS's ....

My dog will sneak up onto the bed with us once we are asleep.
We'll wake up very bunched up because he has spread out all over .... then he gets booted again.


He's not allowed on our furniture, but when we get home from work we sometimes find hair on the couch. Now I pile stuff on it before I leave in the morning!

Re: Who Lets Their GS's ....

i never used to, except when i was feeling sad, luc could come up and sleep with me. but he's such a mild, submissive dog, he always sleeps with me now. (BUT....i let the cats out at night while teagan is crated. if mitch gets up on the corner of the bed b/f luc is in it, i have to pick up mitch b/c luc is scared of him (3 legs, no teeth....ROAR) and won't get up on the bed unless i pick him up. that's my big guy.

teagan is allowed up on the stuffed chair in the window, b/c she loves to look out the window, and i think it's better for her hips to have something soft to sit in while she does. if i want to sit there, she knows she has to move.

sometimes if my bf and i are watching a movie on the bed (tv is in my room), teagan is allowed up w/us, b/c luc is, and it doesn't seem fair to leave her down.

nobody is allowed on the couch.

Re: Who Lets Their GS's ....

Well, it has been different with each one. Our first two were allowed everywhere! They were our babies before we had kids.
Our third was not allowed on our bed but the couch was ok.
And with these two pups neither! OK so KC gets on the couch now... I am trying to break her of that but she sees Titan up there and wants to sleep with him. I might loose this battle for the couch. I have a leather couch so it is easy enough to keep clean.

If permitted on the bed or furniture, Grimm would decide world dominion and supremecy was his alone as "Supreme Happy Tyrant of the Doggiverse."

Re: Who Lets Their GS's ....

I live alone with Freyja. My "fur"niture is her furniture. LOL The chair, the couch, the bed. The reason for this is I need the physical contact with her. I need the love and cuddles. It goes as far as if I'm at my parents or grandparents home, half the time I will sit on the floor with her to cuddle. The only time its not allowed is when I'm eating.

No pups on the furniture or bed....we will occasionally get a cat on the bed, but only if its cool....one cat does sleep with our 10 year old.

I don't allow any of the dogs on the furniture at all. That doesn't mean they don't sneak up there sometimes and I do give Charley some leeway since he's small and sometimes needs to get away from the bigger dogs.

Re: Who Lets Their GS's ....

In sure some have seen Sarges pics of him curled up on the end of the loveseat. That love seat is in front of the window. Sarge loves to see out the window so thats kind of his spot. Having said that he can also be found laying on the couch between the wife and I getting his pets in.

He doesnt want to be on the bed all night but he likes to say goodnight so he jumps up and lays between the wife and I and we talk to him and pet him for a few minutes. Then he allows us a few hours sleep before we feel that cold nose in the morning that says....hi there, i have to go out now.

He's a very well behaved dog so I dont see any problem with it from a training standpoint, as for the hair, all my clothes have dog hair most of the time so im used to it by now.
