I mentioned Kaiser (beloved pet sitting client) in another thread, and this is him again. He was a very well-trained and obediant boy. If I was sitting on the couch, he'd put a paw up, which was his way of asking to come up. If you said no, he'd lie on the floor (with that ''why do you hate me?" look on his face lol), if you said "okay'', he'd hop up, lie next to you with his chin on your arm or shoulder and his ears plastered flat to his head...soooo happy!
As for bed, well, he had his own dog bed, but I, as house-sitter slept in the guest room..which had a water bed. One night something woke me up, I listened a bit..nothing..went back to sleep. (could hear him breathing normally, not concerned). Woke up again, this time I turned on the light to find Kaiser in mid-crawl at the foot of the bed. ie front end on the bed, one hind foot on the bed. He froze in place when the light came on..lol. As soon as I spoke he kind of launched to lie right on top of me. As we all know, Dobies are pretty bony/pokey! (plus, he was a big boy and I could feel the wood of the waterbed under me...fortunately, he listened when I told him to get down!)
I used to take him with me almost everywhere (normal for him with his owners too) and he wouldn't ask to jump up on any couch other than his own, but he would turn around and sit with his butt on couches and chairs. Fortunately, nobody seemed to mind!
