ANIMALS 2 (Why Animals Should be Kept off Furniture) (17/12/1991)

Because they're hairy
And they shit on it.


Bringing home a new puppy is

Bringing home a new puppy is like adopting a new member into your family. Dogs are friendly, loving family the members that make great companions. One of the first tasks Petsafe Wireless uses your home for pets.

Our cat is very well

Our cat is very well trained, she has a cushion on the couch and only goes there, she will not jump onto any other parts or walk muddy paws across it. Training and keeping you pet health and clean is the key to keeping your house tidy when you have a pet around.


Good one. If your dog or pet however is always kept clean by you, then you should not worry about fleas transferring to your body. If your dog is also properly trained, then I bet it wouldn’t tear the sofa down. If they are properly disciplined then, they wont do those.

For furry furniture that is

For furry furniture that is true, but a flea will not last long on a leather seat. The only problem is if you sit there, it may hold onto your clothing and this is how to can spread around the house/into your car etc without needing the dog or cat. Its not hard to stop fleas, so you should, much more comfortable for you and your pet. Its totally up to you if you want to let them on the furniture or not, if your animal is clean there shouldn't be any problems. If your furniture is expensive, that is up to you to and your fault if the animal shreds it to pieces.

Flea on furniture

I don't want to scare people but if you leave your pets get up on your furniture then there's a chance that they will spread their fleas there. Then next time you ly down on your couch the flea jumps onto you. Just something to consider...

I agree, we dont let our dog

I agree, we dont let our dog on the sofa. While pets can be clean most of the time it is easy for them to pick up pests from other animals. Then of course there are those little accidents that dont go down well on a $2000 sofa!


Sometimes the small posts are the best, I totally agree. Dogs and furniture don't mix

Yeah, I love animals but not

Yeah, I love animals but not on the furniture, it feels a bit unhygenic and messy to me.

Nowadays furniture's are

Nowadays furniture's are polished with chemicals to give a brighter look which can be harmful for pets if intaken. Secondly the way the pets treat the things, when they are in mood of mischief or play, everyone knows.

Something no one has

Something no one has considered yet is the effect it could have on you pet. Some furniture may be treated with chemicals, especially leathers which may irritate your pets skin.

Never thought of that

I never thought about that actually, that's a good point. I never let my pets on the furniture anyways, but there's so many things that dogs can't do/have that humans can it's unreal. We don't know for sure what they can or cant have because we can't communicate with them obviously, but it's good to be careful.

Absolutely off the

Absolutely off the furniture! Cats will use the soft material to sharpen their claws on it, puppies will tear it apart and both will malt all over it.

Not if they are house

Not if they are house trained and not molting. But generally it is more hygienic for people to not let their pets sleep on furniture we use.

Well animals must stay

Well animals must stay always away from furniture.

yes i agree with you ...

yes i agree with you ... beside take a shit there, some times they take a pee there too

your little tiff

I dont understand your aurgument with the so called "spambot" guy. I promote dining furniture but i have a genuine interest in animals as well hence the two dogs, one cat and three goldfish that reside with me. Anyway i do agree that animals have there place and it is not on the sofa or the bed. I don't understand why people let them sleep with themselves or beg at the dining table when you have visitors for a meal... It's wrong.... stop it.... it's wronger than spam :~}
Ps not bothered for the free Ad (unless you want to) just wanted to get my piont across @~}

With all due respect, it’s

With all due respect, it’s all very well to love and care for animals, but sharing a bed or couch with them is annoying. For one, it’s not really hygienic. What’s more, it’s dangerous coz you never know when they could just go wild (no pun intended)

pets in the house

I love pets but... I prefer not to share a home with them

me too

yes, me too ... my family the same, we are prefer not to live on the same roof so we plan to build dog's facility such as dog houses and many facility for their dog agility training ... i think we can train them to shit on the specific place
nice post and i think you're dog lover .. :-)
thanks for sharing me this great post and keep up your good post
have a nice day .... :-)

Hey, very interesting

Hey, very interesting post.

My written English is not so good so I write in German:

"Lieber den Spatz in der Hand, als die Taube auf dem Dach."

Yours sincerely

My cat enjoys tearing

My cat enjoys tearing pillows

i know, i know.

My parents Jack Russell dog loves to get in bed with me in the morning! I know its not normal and sounds a bit wierd, but i love him jumping an and having a snooze with me.

I did see a program on the tv very recently where a women did the same with her dog and in actually attacked her.. not sure what the exact reason was, but it bit her nose off....


I have 3 dogs and 2 cats and had a terrible time keeping them off the furniture. My cats especially - they would spray or claw my couches. A few months ago, I started using Feliway's Anti-Marking Spray. It works really well - my cats have only had a few accidents since. Does anyone else notice that when one has an accident, the others will try to spray the same spot?


Pretty much sums it up, you're right!

Off the furniture?

That's assuming that you still have furniture. Most of the time they just tear it up with their claws. I still can't live without them :)

Well, we've only got a

Well, we've only got a rabbit, and she's in a hutch. So no furniture issues.

lucky you

you're so lucky you just have rabbits ... ha ha ha



I would have thought it was

I would have thought it was fairly self-explanatory :)

Unless you're a spambot, of course, in which case you probably say that to all the web pages you encounter.

Hmm, bedroom furniture: I wonder if this is merely an attempt at spamming my website for commercial gain?

nope, I'm an animal loving

nope, I'm an animal loving human :D

In which case, my apologies.

In which case, my apologies. I wasn't intending to upset animal lovers. Just put animals in their place :) I'll let the free advertising stand.
