It has unfortunately come to the point in our household where we are having to lay some strict rules and changing things around with the dogs. We are finally getting the living room couches professionally cleaned tomorrow (how exciting!!). So with that big mission accomplished comes a not-so-exciting mission: teaching the dogs that they cannot get on the couches anymore.
It can be done, we did it with Pellet. At first he was allowed on our bed until things got out of control (he got too big) so we had to retrain him to not get on the bed. The struggle now is now to the squared power (two dogs and two couches instead of one dog and one bed).
Yes, there have been lots of "OFF!" and "NO!" going on around here and along with that two confused pups.
