Re: Keeping Dogs off furniture.


Thank you so much for this information about the wet coat.
We have a Boston and last summer there was a day that she got over
heated and was breathing heavily.

Breathing Problems With Boston Terriers is a common health problem with this breed....
Because of the dogs short mushed in nose they are classified as a brachycephalic breed.
With this condition the dog has a hard time breathing due to the fact that
the sinus region and palate can be restricted.

I have lots of clothes for her, I particularly have cotton shirts that I could wet
and use if I see any signs of overheating.
Again, thank you for this useful tip.

Re: Keeping Dogs off furniture.


The only effective thing I ever found was one of those cushions with a battery powered alarm. Put a tiny bit of weight on it and it made a very loud noise. After it went off once or twice we did not even need to turn it on. The mere site of it on the furniture kept them off.

Re: Keeping Dogs off furniture.


They also make an aerosol deterrent that makes a loud "pssssh" hissing sound when you spray it. I have used it to train my cat to not jump up on certain surfaces. You don't need to spray the animal or even be close to them for the sound to be a deterrent.

Important to note, it is more effective if they don't see you make the loud noise. Some animals can and will figure out that if you're not around to make the noise, they can get away with whatever they want.

My wife doesn’t allow any “filthy” animals in our house (her words). She barely tolerates my being in the house.

Keeping dogs off furniture? No way! Cuddling on the sofa with our little guy is one of my most favorite things to do.

Re: Keeping Dogs off furniture.


I agree raylo, our pooch and her sister cuddle up on the den sofa with us
all the time.
I don’t let them on the Living room sofa...they run in from outside all full
of mud and jump up on the sofa to look out the window

If you lean forward our Jessie will snuggle behind you!

Also, you’re always guaranteed a willing nap partner

Re: Keeping Dogs off furniture.


Ours can't be off leash so he doesn't get muddy, but we still keep a blanket on the sofa for him. When we go to her sister's we have to be very careful as she has several leather pieces that are no dog zones.

Re: Keeping Dogs off furniture.


I bought a leather sofa for my dog! Leather is great for dogs, I mean real
leather not bonded leather, it’s very strong. We even upholstered two chairs in leather that the dogs go on...cats and leather don’t mix however; they like to
sharpen their claws on the leather sides.

I'm sure the dog would be fine on these leather chairs. All he would do there is sleep. The woman is just that way about the chairs and it's not worth arguing about.

I had expensive leather furniture & the cats never bothered it. Maybe it has to do with the leather? They didn't like to sit on it & had to have fabric pillows.

Re: Keeping Dogs off furniture.


Actually our cat scratched all the sides of our chairs and sofas.
That’s why we taught ourselves to upholster furniture.
