Emm..... I can see that these Setters just see themselves as human! Reuben is on his bed in Lounge at mo (which is placed by our sofa) and he did try the sofa earlier and was a good boy when I said off. So it may be possible as long as he doesn't give me the real sad eyes...
Oh they have got me very well trained, I sit on one seat of two three seater settees, Lyn is correct 'once invited they are on for life'. its better to share, the floor gets rather hard when you are getting older, and I do find it difficult getting up off the floor these days....;o))
You can train anyway you want him/her to be for the rest of his/her life ! It is up to you ! Here we have different sofas.. I don't mind them going on the red one as it does not show the dirt on the other hand they are not allowed on the white sofa.....and they know very well....although Roger will sit as a human on it with only his bottom on it and his front paws on the ground! Setters are very intelligent and you can teach them anything! It is entirely up to you what you think should and should not be allowed in your house!
Arrh, Barbara, just look at them, so, so sweet! How do you keep that sofa clean? Thanks Catherine and what a good rule you have. I like the idea of teaching Reuben only when invited but was just a bit worried I may be unfair by confusing him, but if they are that intelligent then perhaps he will learn by invite only.
Barb, is that Alfie and Harry? How old are they now?
