My little Pupper is starting to have trouble jumping up onto the couch. He's 13 or so. He jumps up, but falls back. That's how my last dog injured his eye. Fell back and hit the edge of the coffee table. We have put Pupper's afghan on the floor thinking he will choose to stay down, but he's determined to be on the couch. Poor doggie.

Carol, if he is allowed on the couch, why not put a step in front of the couch so it's easier for him to get up.

Some Walgreens sell pet steps. I think places like Petco might too. I built Beagle's from a kit from Drs Smith and Foster, she loves them.

Spike has a set for Teddy because his bed is so high. It even has "brass railings" that match the headboard and foot board on the dog's bed. Is this dog spoiled? The only time Teddy goes up on the bed is if he needs to wakeup Spike because he NEEDS to go out now, or during a thunderstorm.

I doubt if he would use a step. Neither he nor our other dog have ever been able to jump onto the bed. We have a cedar chest at the foot of the bed and I tried to teach them to jump onto the cedar chest and then onto the bed and they just couldn't get the drift.

I can just see me trying to put drops in Shreddy's nose. I might succeed the first time.

We had to make a ramp for our large dog to get in the back of the pick-up truck. The right shaped pillows would also work for your dog to get up on the couch.

(I thought ALL dogs were allowed on the furniture!)
