Hi all - I'm just curious - how many of you let your dogs on the furniture? What do you think are the pros and cons of doing so?
mine go to work w/ me and have never tried to get on the furniture there.....they seemed to know from the start that it was off limits there (even tho as wee bairns i would put them up there next to me...up to about 3 mo)Gypsy is not allowed on the couch.
It wouldn't bother me all that much, but the folks prefer to have the couches free of scratches and dog hair. It's also nice that when I bring Gypsy to relatives' and the BF's houses, she doesn't jump on their furniture. It would be frowned upon there.

Thats what I'm worried about mostly- cuz she likes sucking out the stuffing - she doesnt eat the stuffing but she pulls it all out.One furniture problem we've had with her is using her little "seam ripper" teeth to extract stuffing from pillows and couch cushions. It's worked to get her some cheap dollar store stuffed pillows and toys that are hers and that she can rip up while training "leave it" for the furniture and pillows.
