Our Birdy is not named that without good reason. Her registered name is First In Flight, also not without good reason. I think she was 14 weeks when she was jumping onto, and off of the sofa. Her jumps off the sofa were not always only from the seat either. Sometimes she would fly off the arm, landing at least 5 feet away, going into the kitchen.
We tried keeping her from jumping off of high things, but it was hopeless trying to. She's nothing like a heavy boned, or tall for a Havanese either.
Our house has 2' baby gates blocking various rooms. Birdy sails over them like it's almost no effort, and goes where she pleases. She jumps them either from a standstill, or in stride. She doesn't even have to think about it.
We have several who can jump head, and shoulders above counters, and one, Dapper, who can pull stuff off a counter if it's left too close to the edge.
Posh was the first with such breakout, athletic movement, and he has passed it on.
