So here’s a little back story, we got Sarge (the pug) when he was a puppy after about a month of living in our new place. He was my birthday present from my honey. I love him to death! We didn’t really think about not letting him up on the furniture or on our bed to sleep. He was part of the family as far as I was concerned.
Well after many months of sleepness nights about 2 years ago we decided to move him out of the bed and into the living room at nights. I envy people who can sleep with all their doggies. They must not snore, obsessively lick, pant heavily, or go in out of the covers 50 million times!!
So long story short, Sarge moved his sleeping area to our sofa, we always had piece of crap sofas so I didn’t really think about it much. Until we got Mr. Whitey (our new sofa) and now he is basically forbidden. I feel bad, but it’s honestly for the best. I mean who wants to go over to someones house and sit on a furry stinky dog sofa. Eww.
Unfortunatley its very hard to train a dog when you’re SLEEPING! What do I do!? Ugh, well for starters I’ve been training him not to get on the sofa at all while I’m around. When I leave or go to sleep I’ve resorted to putting a blanket over the whole sofa, just in case the stinker gets up there.
And this is what I wake up to every morning
Well at least he lays on the blanket!
How can you yell at this cute face?
I do have to mention that Bronx was always trained to be off furniture. He is such a good boy and always sleeps in his bed. Sometimes he does get jealous of his brother and tries to crawl up. Stinker!
If anyone has any good ides for training a dog not to sleep on the couch, I’m ALL EARS!
