    We have very strict rules in our house. We are allowed on BOGEY'S COUCH whenever we want as long as he has a good space to stretch out, and only one of us at a time. If both Ed and I are on the couch, Bogey will pace back and forth OVER us until one of us moves. Then he snuggles down and lets the winner stay. We never break the couch rules. What can I say, he owns us!!

    Interesting to hear about different practices!

    Since I posted my question, things have developed here - Castor has grown (six months now) and can jump up on beds and couch quite easily.

    My desk is next to our bed, and when I work from home and sit by the computer - but only then - Castor is allowed on the bed. So far, it has worked out very well; he actually seems to understand that he can only ask to go up onto the bed if I'm sitting there.

    He's not allowed on the couch, so when we're not at home, we arrange the cushions so that he cannot get onto the couch (and we close the bedroom doors).

    Dogs are situational and adapt as such.... Train them on the rules and limitations with consistency and they do know the difference

    When Stinky gets on the leather couch I put down a sheet, but when I don't want him up there I put a huge piece of card board.Same goes with the chairs.
