Thanks all. Some really helpful replies.

I've come to three conclusions from reading all this:

1. The books talk rubbish
2. I'm going to start off not letting Harvey onto the sofa and then cave in at some point
3. I have inappropriate sofas for dog ownership

:lol: :lol: :lol:

We're a month into doodle ownership with our pup. We had a vague no sofa rule which pretty much we stick to, except at 5am, when Sam goes out for a pee and poo then up for a sofa cuddle- I'm too tired to enforce not getting up on sofa and it's kinda nice. I also have a leather sofa, however it's black!.

We tried too, worked until caravan and canal boat holidays,then........ we have a yellow leather sofa,very old,Dexter uses the arm to rest his head and keep an eye on me in the kitchen,he also thinks he is a little doodle and likes to stand on the top of the chair back and watch passers by, all four paws on a postage stamp!

Dexter has always been allowed on the sofa, but only when we say he can come up. Never had a problem he knows we are in charge although I do find myself squashed up one end as he is so long! Oh and I have a dark brown leather sofa!lol. I use fleece throws with paw prints on to help prevent mud or scratchesx

My three doods have been allowed on the sofas but only when they are invited to. They also get down straight away when told. You then have the best of both worlds which does not confuse them if you are consistent. Only problem is that they love to cuddle when they were pups and still love to sit on me as fully grown doods. Hard when all three try at the same time :lol: :lol: I have the same rule when I sleep but they like sleeping on the single foam mattress on the floor beside me. Only one major problem that I have. I don't have a brown sofa!!!!!!!
