I discourage pets on the bed anymore, except the cat
- oh well!
Anyway, Angel sleeps in a crate, and is not allowed on furniture unless he is placed there. And I try, don't always succeed, but try to put him on the floor when it comes to getting down. When we are not going to be with him, he is in his crate, because he can get hurt when we are not there. But, I had a mini-dachshund once that put his back out jumping off the bed, which at that time was very low! OMG! I had never heard a dog "cry" before. It was horrible! He was trying to walk, dragging his hind legs! I immediately took him to the vet. They gave me pain meds, and said to make him rest and he would be fine. Just like with humans, rest an it will heal itself. If I opted for surgery it would have been $2000 and it was a 50/50 gamble. This was over 30 years ago. He ended being fine! But no more furniture for pets anymore.
But, everyone has their own comfort level.
