    Default Barley has learned to jump onto the couch / chairs

    There will be one less spot to sit in our house. Barley figured out that with a little running jump he can get onto any chair or couch in the house. He actually took his toy up on the chair to chew on. That is my spot.....or it least it was my chair......

    I maybe a stick in the mud lol but is that what you want? If not start correcting now.

    We were correcting every time and then started to lay off and Kain won. We wished we stayed with it so he only comes up on our terms but he is so affectionate he has to be with someone no matter what.

    We will still be working on us picking him up and not jumping on his will otherwise he would walk on the company.

    it's amazing that those little legs and thick bodies can jump up on things haha...our little guy titan just started climbing on our couch right at 6 months and he's a looney bin now doing it all the time to show off. it's very exciting though!!!(especially cuz he tries so hard with kicking his back legs to swoop the rest of him up) oh the surprises bulldogs bring.

    thanks for sharing the pictures too!

    @Vince00 is right. Now is the time to train the behavior you want for the long term. Re-training "stay off the couch" is painful at best.

    Bo "asks" to come up on the couch about 75% of the time -- but I'm not consistent so that is my fault. I bought a leather couch so the dogs could be up there with me so it's not an issue with me. Bea cannot get up by herself but Bo learned very early on that the couch was THE PLACE TO BE. ha ha And I'm fine with that. He only gets up there when there's a human to lay with.

    Awe how adorable! Brutus hasn't figured out jumping onto things yet. When he wants on the couch, he comes to me and puts his front paws on my legs for me to lift him up. Of course we have the rule, that the couch is for relaxing or sleeping, not for playing
