Pet dogs love lazing around on the couch or lounging on the sofa just as much as we do. They probably like licking it and tearing it apart when frustrated too. Most pet owners who have not trained their dogs must have already gone through this ordeal.

If you want to save your furniture from potential damage by your dog, you must know how to deter him/her from climbing onto it in the first place. Given below are some methods and techniques that you can try. However, you need to be stern while doing so and not feel guilty, otherwise it will not work and your dog will continue sitting on the furniture.

Dog Training

Training your dog is the best method. It is very important that every dog go through this process. This should be undertaken when they are still pups, as learning and following commands at this stage of their life is really easy for them. Once they get habituated to getting onto the furniture, it will be really difficult for you to rid them of this habit. So, start early and urge your family to do the same. Reward your dog with treats for staying off furniture when asked to do so, and express your unhappiness if he/she tries to get onto it nonetheless. Reinforcement makes the training process a lot easier.

Buying Dog Furniture

Another good way of keeping your dog off the home furniture is to get some furniture for him/her. Dogs love to have a bed, a crate, or a kennel of their own rather than lying on the hard floor. This keeps them comfortable, as well as cozy and secure. Dog beds, kennels, and crates are available in any pet store. Initially, you may need to crate train your dog so that he/she gets used to it. You can also make use of kennel plans and kennel designs to build one yourself.

Using Commercial Aids

There are many products available commercially. These include repellents, alarms, spiked mats, and couch protectors. These are designed in order to discourage your dog from getting onto the furniture, as well as to protect the furniture from any damage and dog fur. This can be done in case your dog has not been trained.

Some More Tips

  • Keep the doors to areas with expensive furniture closed while going outdoors, or when these areas are not being used.
  • Establish and get your dog used to a comfort zone of his/her own in the house by providing food, water, and toys in that particular place. This way, he/she will spend most of the time in that place and stay away from the furniture.
  • For grown up dogs, use a leash even when inside the house, to block their access to the furniture by saying 'off' assertively. Do not pull him/her down from the furniture using the leash.
  • You can also attach a black thread across the front of the furniture and tie one of its ends to a pile of shake cans. As soon as your dog tries to get onto the furniture, the pile of shake cans will come tumbling down. This will make a loud noise and cause your dog to get back down.
  • You can throw balloons on your furniture when you go out, so that if your dog tries to climb onto it, the balloons will burst and make a loud noise.

Try the above mentioned techniques to deter your dog from climbing onto the furniture. Make sure you do not always give in to her/his demands. Remember, being a little strict will have long-term benefits.

Doesn’t your pet deserve a sense of identity? See innovative couture pet products from Fourlegidentity.com, which identifies fine design for dogs and cats alike. Four Leg Identity has created an outlet for you (the pet owner) to find products that accommodate your style (modern, classic, preppy, sophisticated, etc), while bringing that unfailing fashion to your pet.

A new company has been launched designed to aid in couture pet products in addition to a pet resource for all your pet matters and concerns. With pet ownership at an all-time high, Four Leg Identity is focusing on creating an identity for your pet. ‘I felt it extremely important to offer a one-stop-shop where our customers could not only shop for ultra cool pet products, but a place to find information on pet health, disease, training, etc,' says Kari Raderstorf, co-founder of Four Leg Identity. Whether it be the pet boutique, which offers a distinct selection of pet products (dog beds, dog clothes, dog collars and pet grooming supplies), or the resource section which offers informational links to dog parks, pet health and pet care, Four Leg Identity is determined to be the one-stop-shop for its customers.

“I was bored looking at dog beds and dog clothes from the corporate owned pet stores (typical rubbish that caters to the bargain shopper),” said Kari Raderstorf, co-founder of Four Leg Identity. “The styles were stale with little variety. I was also discouraged when trying to locate pet boutiques as they are difficult to find with limited sizing and colors. I wanted to give Archie, our dog, a sense of his own identity, therefore I was on a hunt to find the most practical, yet fashion forward designs for him. After compiling a list of manufacturers and designers I wanted to purchase from, I knew I had to offer this to others, therefore, FourLegIdentity.com evolved.”

Four Leg Identity has partnered with talented designers and manufacturers, such as Crypton, West Paw, PetEgo, Diva Dog, DenHaus, Cloak and Dawgie and more, to offer its customers the highest in quality, a distinct aesthetic and a uniqueness that won’t be found at the ‘big box’ pet stores. Although pet identity is of the utmost importance, superior craftsmanship takes precedence as Four Leg Identity strives to deliver products that will last a lifetime

In Summary, Four Leg Identity is about pet identity and strives to offer the latest in couture pet products (from dog beds to dog collars to dog clothes to pet grooming supplies) as well as essential resources for all pet matters.

About Four Leg Identity:

Four Leg Identity, an Indiana-based, website-only Pet Product retailer, launched their site in January of 2009 out of a passion to give pet owners and their pets a sense of identity. Ironically, the concept started when the mother / daughter team was trying to comprehend the ‘big pet store’ mentality (typical rubbish that caters to the bargain shopper) while comparing that to the ‘boutique pet stores’ that are hard to find and do not necessarily carry the right size or color for that matter. In shopping for their own pets, they became discouraged and bored with the selections, therefore started researching pet designers, pet fashion and quality pet manufacturers to offer unique products to their dogs. While doing their due diligence and uncovering an amazing selection of pet products they felt the need to share their findings and realized the enormous need among passionate pet owners to give other pets an identity they deserve. Therefore, Four Leg Identity has evolved offering dogs, cats and their owners, high quality, unique and fashion forward dog beds, dog collars, dog clothes, pet grooming products and so much more.
