Our dogs are not allowed on the furniture now. They were for years, but they damaged it so badly, and when we got slipcovers, they quickly ruined them by digging around "nesting". I had to put my foot down. I did buy them a big fluffy bed for the living room as a peace offering though
I like the idea of having a "no dog" couch as stated above for visitors. Sometimes it isn't even about a person not liking dogs on them (I do understand that too, however) or dog smell, but a visiting pastor (whom I love!) comes to our house all the time to visit my grandma that I care for that is on hospice care, and he is horribly allergic. As a family with a lot of food issues, I appreciate it so much when people cater to our needs even though they do not have to. I like to be considerate as well.
I don't sleep with my dogs. They are crated at night. I co-sleep with my babies, no dogs allowed. Maybe when they are grown, but not in the meantime.

Agree that this is 100% preference. We are a casual family (and we have a toddler, so we only by stain resistent furniture). We don't mind our dogs being on the furniture when they are clean.

The one thing we did was made sure that they know they're only allowed up by invitation. They aren't allowed to run into the room and launch onto the sofa or someone's lap. They sit at the foot of the couch and they wait to be invited up. If we don't want them on the furniture, we tell them to go lay down and they'll crash in their dog beds.

We have leather furniture. We purchased it specifically because we have children (8 kids 14 and under) so it would he easy to clean and sanitize. We bought that before we had the dogs, and little nails jumping up and grabbing has scratched it all up.

I would love it if Molly wanted to sit with me on the couch, but she prefers the kitchen floor! Now the bed is a different matter! It's really kinda weird. During the evening I like to watch TV & use my laptop sitting on my bed. Molly lays on the bathroom floor where she can see me, and no matter if I call her to me to get up on the bed, unless I have a treat, that's where she lies until I turn off the lamp and lay prone....then she's up on the bed to snuggle cuz it's 'bedtime'. She lies on my side with her head on my chest until I close my eyes and then she moves to the foot of my bed! It's almost as if she's making sure I'm OK before she 'goes to bed'! I sure wish she were that considerate at 6am when she starts banging on the door to be let out, or jumping on my chest with a toy in her mouth to play......

Panda is similar. When Im downstairs he usually sleeps on the tile instead of the carpet or couch, and I think he does that because its cooler, so maybe thats why Molly likes the bathroom floor. Panda cuddles close when I first turn out the lights at bedtime, but when I stop petting and start to fall asleep he moves to the foot of the bed. Sometimes when the alarm goes off he comes back up and lays on me. A doggie hug first thing in the morning is the best thing in the world!
