Pet Policy: Do You Let Your Dogs on The Couch?

Pet Policy: Do You Let Your Dogs on The Couch?

When we first got our dog Herbie, one of our first ground rules was to not allow him on the couch (or sleep in the bed, for that matter). We figured that it was just better that way: less dirt and fur all over the couch, and we certainly didn't want our guests to be covered in dog fur when we invited them to sit.

Times have changed a little bit: since getting a new couch (and another dog) and moving the old one in the spare bedroom (our designated den), we've begun to relax our No Dogs On Couch rule, and letting them hop on the old one when we're watching a movie or hanging out. Do you let your dogs on the couch or sleep in the bed with you?
