How to Keep Your Dog Off the Furniture
You love your dog and you dog loves you. He also love the soft, cushiony feeling of your bed, chairs and sofa, especially while you're not around. A dog's love of furniture is as old as time, and unless you learn to manage it, it will last until the end of time.

However, unless you have a wonderfully well-trained and obedient dog who can resist the temptation, you will no doubt get frustrated from time to time enter a room and find your pet nestled among your pillows and cushions where he doesn't belong. They love you and they love your smell, which is why they love your furniture. Who wouldn't?
There are no shortage of tricks to keep your off of the couch available on the the internet, including a sound emitted gizmo or even a smelly spray. But the I have found that most effective way it to put a few strips aluminum foil on the surface you want to stay clear.
