Quick Tip for Keeping Your Dog Off the Furniture

From the AKC GoodDog! Helpline Team

If your dog insists on sleeping on your favorite chair or couch and you prefer that your dog stay off the furniture, try this approach to create a more desirable sleeping spot for your canine buddy.

Buy a very comfortable, cushy dog bed and place it next to the piece of furniture the dog likes to jump on. Place favorite toys and chew bones on the new bed.

You might even tip over the chair or couch temporarily so the dog can only get on the bed – or make that chair or couch not as comfy to get on by putting aluminum foil on it!
