The age and size of your toy can make a huge difference. My childhood toy poodle was on the large end and she slept on my very high bed - easily jumping on and off until age slowed her down.

Little Bella is definitely on the small end - she's a whopping 4.5 lbs and we had a horrible scare with her where she tried to jump up on the end of the recliner (it's like the little stinker has built in springs she jumps so high) but she missed and flipped over backwards and I thought from her screams she broke her tiny leg - thankfully it did not happen but ever since we have discouraged any jumping on furniture and instead pick her up and set her down. And there are many many reports on here with small toys that have broken legs in similar circumstances.

However in agility she jumps 8" with no problem (easily could clear 12" or higher) but normally practice at 4". We did not start this though until she turned a year to avoid any stress on her joints and bones.

Be very careful with the jumping..we had a friend holding our toy poodle, Bailey, and the puppy jumped out of her arms and dislocated the patella. She had problems with the patella going out everytime she would run, jump, etc. and I would have to put it back in place. It was very painful for her..use the little steps.
