Hi, this is Victoria Warfel, with DreamDogz Training, located in Gainesville, Florida, here to talk about how to keep your dog off of the sofa. The easiest thing to do is never allow your dog onto the sofa to begin with. But, if your dog is already jumping onto the sofa, the easiest thing would be to have them off. Every time he jumps up, tell him off. Get your dog off and reward him for being on the ground. If you can provide your dog with a comfy dog bed in your living room and show him that the sofa isn't his, but the dog bed is his, it gives your dog an alternative. Instead of jumping up on the couch and getting cuddles, he can lay down on his bed and you can sit beside him and give him cuddles. You can also claim the sofa, and whenever your dog is off of the sofa, stretch ahh and relax and take up the whole couch so there's no room left for your dog.
