We allow both dogs on our furniture. We also have 3 dog beds for them. They are big dogs, they take up a lot of room. They both lay on the couch, honestly they think they are 75 pound lap dogs. Shadow will also jump up in the rocking recliner chair and curl up and lay down. At night Sadie sleeps on the dog beds on the floor on dh's side of the bed and Shadow sleeps at the bottom of our bed but only in the winter. As soon as nice weather comes she won't even try to jump up there. Which is weird to me because we have an air conditioner in the bedroom, so it is cooler in there in the summer than in the winter. We got the dogs in the first place to treat them like family so they are allowed on the furniture just like family.
