Keeping dog off sofa & bed - Advice
A friend is taking care of a neighbours' dog for the next 3 months or so. The dog is a 3yr old shepherd/lab/cocker mix. The neighbour was unable to take Mandy with her, while she recovers from a serious illness at her daughter's home 7 hrs. away as the daughter is in a strict no pets apartment.
Question my friend needs help with ( a big no, no, at her house)is how to keep Mandy off the sofa & bed. When she agreed to take care of her, she had no idea this would be an issue as in her almost daily visits she'd never once seen Mandy on her neighbours' couch. Had she known, in advance this was a problem, she would not have offered to take the dog.
She really wants to help her neighbour out (boarding is not affordable) but needs a solution. What advice can you give me, for her?
