    My dogs are not allowed on the carpetted areas of my house. It takes a while to get them trained to do this - but yes, consistency is key and the first step is to master the "nuh uh" command - which is basically my personal mutli-purpose command to get the dogs to stop whatever it is they're doing so I can then redirect them to doing something else. So, the minute a paw hits carpet I go "nuh uh" and give them the "back up" command and do the praise praise praise... It takes a while for them to finally get it, but it only takes one time that you don't tell them to get off the carpet and all the hard work of training gets unravelled so you go back to square one.

    As far as the couch... the really interesting thing is, I was trying to train Bullie to not go on the couch and it took a while and she still wants to get on the couch which is aggravated by the skin people sneaking a couch cuddle here and there... so I was just gonna give up and strike out the no-dog-on-couch rule (by the way, I have to do this because I got a kid with dog allergies, so I was just gonna ban the kid from the couch instead of the dog) so I decided to get rid of the couch and replace it with leather couch.... the new couch comes in and the dogs won't even stay in the room! It took a while for them to lay down on the foot of the couch but I never had any problems with the couch anymore. LOL!

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    Daisy & I have a "don't ask, don't tell" relationship where the couch is concerned. She doesn't jump up on it when I'm home but i see her snoozing up there sometimes when I'm checking the DaisyCam from work.

    Sold the couch.

    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.
