Why? Why not?
I decided to do so because it is easier to cuddle when we are both on the couch. However, I do not let him on the bed, since he has his crate for that.

My dogs are allowed on the couch and bed. Unfortunately Maxx does not stay on the bed not very long because he gets too hot. Usually he sleeps in his crate with his fan blowing on him or on top of the a/c vent in my bathroom.
Why do I let them on the furniture? Why not!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Yup! I bought my current couch so that five labs and I could all be together and stretch out.

Yes, but yellow lab hair does not look good on eggplant couches! Ugh
Is the Pope Catholic?Do you let your dog on the couch?
No. My dogs let me use the couch ......... if I'm lucky.
Jack is allowed on the couch and loveseat. As soon as he was 100% on his potty, he was going to sleep in the bedroom. We put his bed in the corner. He spent......maybe 2 nights there. He now sleeps mostly in the bed, but he also gets too hot and will sleep on the floor often. He's the first dog I ever allowed in the bedroom , I used to work until 11 PM and I'd come home and Bob & puppy Jack would be sound asleep in the bed. That was when he was too little to even get up there (our bed is a little high) without help. But I love to cuddle with him
I curse the day I let Ernie sleep on the bed. I wean him off a couple of years ago. Took a week and finally he was in his own bed and I didn't wake up sore from him sleeping on me. He became sick again and stupid me let him on the bed. He will be there for the rest of his life now.
They have their own sofa in my office and the one is the dog room fits us all. They are not allowed on the furniture in the living room as I want one room where people can sit and not leave covered in dog fur.
Kassa it was invitation and she had to sit on her blanket. She would drag it onto the sofa to sit on it. Ernie will sit on his sheep skin on the sofa and Tess sits on me.
All my dogs are allowed on the couch. I love watching tv and cuddling with my dogs.
