In case anyone is interested, I managed to get my two jumpers to be NON jumpers and I never confined them in a crate. First of all, they need to have a place they absolutely LOVE that is near to where the “action is”. For us, that is in the family room/kitchen area. They both have super comfy dog mattresses and blankets in a crate. The crate is on sliders and can be moved around to be closer to us if necessary. Both my dogs are free to go in and out of their crates and have been trained since little on to love their crate. Dogs are creatures of habit. So if they are used to hanging out on the sofa, that is where they are going to be. To keep them off and break the habit, all I did was keep the sofa cushions turned up at an angle so they cannot sit on it. When somebody wants to sit on the sofa they just put the cushion down. They got used to their only sleeping place being their crate. After awhile, they never even tried to go on the sofa. This may not work for all dogs but worked for me. My dogs are not suffering. They love their crates and are free to go in or out of them. And they are always near us which seems to be all they care about.
Some dogs don't run and jump a lot. I've never had a dog that likes to run and jump like this Havanese. It's their natural instinct. Patti isn't into laying or sitting on furniture but she does occasionally jumped up and down from a chair, ottoman, couch, an empty end table or perch on a low window ledge. That isn't likely going to hurt any dog. Havanese are more like cats when it comes to agility and getting onto things...IMO.
Patti's preferred position is feet on the floor, except if I'm napping on the bed then she likes to join me for a noon time nap. Otherwise, the closet floor, under the clothes is her preferred sleeping area. We've spoiled Patti and would probably let her on the furniture but she's not interested.
Training a dog to stay off furniture is another issue. I had a poodle named Ashley who loved sleeping and sitting on the top edge, on the back of the couch. She was bathed weekly but the oil from her skin was dirting that area. I didn't want her up there and she knew that was a No! No! Ashley was good about staying off the couch ... while someone was home. When we left she was back up there and I would hear her jumping off when we came home and walked in the door. Dogs are so! smart. Can't help but love 'em.
I have a utility room with a doggie door where I left dogs if I was going to be gone for the day ... but for quick trips they were left in the house. Patti is confined in the house when we leave for the day since she is indoor-potty trained. Otherwise, she has access to the doggie door when we are home.
I love! Doggie Doors ... have always had one. My mother always had one for dogs. Before we had fencing
I had one for decades and never had a problem on 11-acres of any thing but my dogs entering and going outside. To each their own ... Love 'em or Hate 'em or Scared of 'em. I'm in the Love category.
