Nickie doesn't jump on or off beds or furniture. Is this unusual? I mentioned this to our vet and his response was "Good!". Nickie is 2 1/2. He'll jump up and down by a bed or chair, but never gets on it. Our over sized sheltie (29 lbs. and not overweight) has never jumped on furniture so possibly Nick doesn't know dogs can do this. Past dogs have never had problems with this.
Is Nickie unusual?
My two Havanese never ever tried to jump on any of the furniture. They were never stopped, they just never bothered. I think they had enough of their own beds around and were satisfied with that. They had beds in the kitchen, livingroom, our bedroom and my office, so why bother.
