Default Are your dogs allowed on the furniture?

Miley is. Spanky and Bandit are if invited. They understand that concept very well. They are too big to be on the couch all the time. If there are a lot of people around they have to sleep on their bed which is actually more comfortable. I am the only person that is aloud to let Bandit up on the couch. He doesn't respect people right off the get go and will get possessive of the couch. No growling, snapping or snarling. Just will wiggle his way behind them shove them off. They don't see it as a big deal but I know my dog and what he is like. He isn't doing it to be cute.

The cats live on the couches. Currently I have Miley, Bella, Spazz, Spanky and Bandit all squished onto the couch with me. It's rather awkward because Spazz hates everyone, Spanky and Bandit usually do not get along this close together, and Bella and Miley are playing. I'm sitting here wondering why the heck I let my animals on the couches.

As for the beds I am guilty. All my dogs and cats sleep with me. Spazz usually will stalk off some time during the night and Bandit will kick Spanky out of bed but at the very least I have Bandit, Miley and Bella curled up in bed when I wake up.

Dash and Dakota are allowed on beds and laps, but they can't hop up onto the furniture whenever they want. Eve is allowed on my futon whenever she wants. All the other furniture, she has to be invited first. Zaphod isn't allowed on anything but my futon, because he scrambles around and scratches at the sofas and chairs.

Bamm isn't allowed on the couches. He is allowed on my bed, but that's it. He was allowed on couches at the foster place so I worried he might try to get on the couches but he hasn't even tried once... he loves my bed though

My dogs are allowed free access to furniture whenever they want. I don't have a problem with it, and I don't feel the need for them to ask. All I require is that they get off when asked, and that's never been a problem. Also, no bones or chewies are allowed on the furniture. Mushroom struggles with that a little bit sometimes.

At home everything is pretty much fair game.

At my parents . . . well, you guys have read the stories, lol!

At the furniture store? Nope. Don't even THINK about it . . .

Max was allowed on my bed, my brother's bed and the couch downstairs but not the furniture in the living room.

Eggzactly.

He's not allowed on my parents' bed and he MUST have all four paws on the ground near the counters and kitchen table, but otherwise it's pretty much a free for all.

No surprises there

Does Bella give you the traumatized, long face when you move her so you can sit down?

Last night I had to get into bed on the left side as Ollie wouldn't move over from MY spot !!! He looked at me as if to say " Why the heck are you on that side ?? "
