I have two dogs. One is a male mutt and the other a female Golden Lab. The male is almost 6 years old and the female almost 5. Anyway the male just recently, about 4-6 months ago, started to get on the beds. The female only goes on the bed when he does, she follows him everywhere. I tell them to get off the beds and she gets off, he just stares at me like I am a lunatic. I literally have to tell him several times to get off the bed. They have there own dog beds, and seem to only get on the beds when I am asleep or at the store. They have tried to sneak on them at times if they think I'm not paying attention. I am at a loss as to what I should do to keep them off. Any suggestions would be great.
You can train them. If they get on to the bed, grab them by their collar or scrap of the neck (like a momma dog would do) and pull them off of the bed and say No. After a while they should get the hint. Just keep being persistant with it.
