How To Handle a Crushing Lap Dog

Sunday, August 11, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

When your dog was a little puppy, you probably  enjoyed  having him sit on your lap. Your dog is now grown and still jumps up and wants to sit on your lap. Of course, your lap is not the perfect place for an adult dog. You must stop this behavior in its tracks before lap sitting  becomes a regular, life long habit. You probably want to treat your lap like any other piece of furniture where dogs are not allowed.  Hopefully, your puppy is learning the “off” command.  As many times as it takes, firmly say “off” and give your pup a little help getting down.  The floor is perfectly fine for dogs.  When he gets off your lap, and lies on the floor, praise him and give him a dog treat.This will quickly change his mind and he will quickly watch TV with you on the floor instead of on your lap.

Remember, your pets count!
