This is a very common question asked by many people as some think that it is not a good idea to allow dogs on the sofa while other think that it is actually ok for dogs to lay on it.
Well, in this article, we are going to give you our point of view on whether It is ok for your furry friend to lay on the sofa.
Should You Allow Your Cockapoo on the Sofa?
We actually think it is fine for our cockapoos to lay on our sofa as it allows them to feel comfortable and we can’t stand not seeing our dog happy. Many people might not agree with what I’m saying, but there shouldn’t be anything wrong with allowing your dog on the sofa.
However, the only disadvantage that might come into play is the color of your sofa. If somehow your sofa is white or has a color that can easily show dirt, then it might not be a good idea to have your dog laying on it as their feet might cause it to look unpleasant.
There’s no doubt that your dog might contribute to dirt getting on your sofa especially if you let them out to play on a regular basis, this will allow them to attract dirt or even wet paws that will eventually go on your sofa.
What we recommend is that you use a piece of cloth and wipe their paws ensure that all dirt are removed before they jump on the sofa. The only drawback is that you won’t always get the chance to do this due to the fact that sometimes your dog will go on it without you even knowing.
The thing is that everyone tend to have different point of view in regards to their dogs being on the sofa and I definitely respect that.
Invite Your Dog to the Sofa When Necessary
There are lots of people who don’t mind having their dogs on the sofa, but it must be on their own terms. This is effective as this will allow you to clean your dog paws before they jump onto the sofa. Another thing you might want to do is spread a blanket on the sofa before your dog get on it.
It’s up to you if you want to allow your dog to be on the sofa or not. Lots of people actually think this is a bad idea while others enjoy having their furry friend on the sofa so they can cuddle. If it’s a case where you don’t think this is a good idea then you may want to get a comfy bed for your dog so that he/she can curl up on whenever they want to.
As I’ve said before, it’s your choice if you want your dog on the sofa so don’t listen to what others have to say and follow your heart, as you will know what is best for you and your furry friend.
