My cat is allowed on the couch, but she is declawed (and rarely gets up there anyway). I am getting a kitten in another week or two, and he will not be allowed on the couch because he still has his claws. The couch belongs to my mom, so she won't allow it. I will allow him on my furniture though.

No, but he thinks he is!

That's such a CUTE pic! :) Yes, they are allowed, but I have soft fleece blankets laid down. The dogs are bathed & blankets washed each week.

Yes, the dogs just kind of make themselves at home, though they are a good size and when both of them are on the couch there's no room for us!

Naturally, she's allowed on the couch with me, with no protection. Except for when she comes in with dirty paws then she gets a mini-bath before she gets to climb up to cuddle.

Panda is allowed on the couch and on the bed. He has to get in his own bed when it's lights out though. He sleeps too restlessly to stay on my bed all night.

He's sitting right next to me, so I'm going to have to say yes! :)

Yup! We have all leather couches so they are super easy to clean. Our dogs are the reason we can't get anything but leather, it's just too hard to clean and we don't like covering them up. The dogs and cats sleep in the beds too.

Yes they are allowed on the couch, and beds if they want and no we don't require protection.
ShaynaLeah ShaynaLeah 6 years dog is small though, so if I'm not already sitting on the couch she can't get up there herself. I put down a blanket, but that's more because she likes to be on/in one than for the furniture - I wanted a dog that would be a companion and my dog is exactly that - she sits next to me on the couch, sleeps on the bed, likes to lay in the sun on the deck... very fun dog :-)

My dog's allowed on the couch, but we do have a blanket on it. It's a white couch from pre-pet days, and we have a brown haired dog, but she's allowed even if the blankets aren't on it.

My dog was definitely couch trained when I found her, and she's so small and cute, I never bothered to break her of the habit. She's possessive of the couch though! I get up for one minute, she steals my spot. We duke it out for couch space on a daily basis!

Yes, Zena is allowed on the couch. No, we don't use rubber or any other sort of protection.

Yes. We have dog doors and sometimes they even sneak on the furniture with muddy paws. It's easy to clean up, though, and I love snuggling with them.

Phoebe not only spends hew whole day on the couch with the snuggie but also sleeps in bed under the covers. She's a doxie so they love the big bed. She is not allowed on the table although i have caught glimpses of her jumping on there when we're not in the kitchen!
