Jumping on the bed/couch

Are havanese generally able to jump up on the furniture? Baxter is not -- or at least has shown no interest in doing so. He sits by the couch or bed and waits for me to put him up. Is this common?

I have a 19 week old male puppy about 5 lbs who is already jumping up on the couch. The bed is too high yet though.

Tori, who is 4 yrs. old, is quite capable of jumping up on the bed, couch, chairs, etc. and willing does so when no one is around. However, if one of us is already on the piece of furniture she wants to be on, she will most likely whine for us to pick her up and put her on it rather than jumping up herself. Can you say spoiled???

Tessa is almost 8 months old and doesn't jump up or down off the couch, chairs or the bed. However, she jumps up and down like a rabbit to greet me. We just pick her up or put her down.

Cooper will jump up if he feels like it especially to get away from Tessa when he has a treat he doesn't want to share. We have hardwood floors throughout the house and sometimes, he slips as he tries to jump up, but he can usually make it. Tessa was almost 6 months old before she would even go down the back stairs out to the yard. She still hasn't even tried our basement stairs.

Tucker was 6 mos. old before he jumped up or down from the sofa or chairs. Our beds to high for him to jump up on. I was beginning to think he wouldn't jump on our furniture. Now when he's doing RLH he runs and jumps on one side of the sofa and down on the other side and continues RLH. I always get tickled watching him do that.

Tillie started jumping up on the couch/recliner as soon as she was big enough around 4 months or so ... she wasn't allowed on the bed until recently... and She can jump just fine at 14 months! LOL

Mine are both jumpers. Finn did it much earlier than Augie, but he is a larger Hav. I think he was able to jump on the couch shortly after 3 months. He is 5 months now. The other day I was sitting in the recliner and he leaped from the floor on the side of the recliner, up over the arm, and plopped into my lap. Poor Augie used to jump on the couches and chairs to get away from him - doesn't work so well these days. We have carpeting and I think it gives them too much traction. I don't want him jumping off things yet, so it is a pain in the fanny!

Rosie had to have help getting on the bed. I would stack up the pillows on the floor each night so she could climb up. I still put the footstool by the foot of the bed every night. However, she won't get in the bed without me telling her to come on.

That's funny -- Baxter won't enter or leave a room or the house unless I give the go ahead.

So, it sounds like there are individual variations. I was wondering if there was something wrong with his legs -- though he can walk on his back ones for so long, it's hard to imagine! I keep coming home expecting to find him walking around the house smoking a pipe!
