Many of us out there are under the assumption that when it comes to having a family and/or pets that a leather sofa is the way to go. Yes, leather is easy to keep clean, however, the practicality of it is not always what you want. For the vast majority of us, when we think of a sofa, we think of comfort.
Despite what some people believe, allowing your dog on the furniture will not make him think he is in charge. It will not suddenly cause aggression or dominance. However, be careful not to inadvertently reinforce certain behaviors or you will be sending the wrong message.
