Keep Pets Off Furniture
Keeping your pets off of your furniture is a serious challenge. Constantly telling your pets to “get down” and being a slave to your hand-held vacuum to get hair off the couch is not fun. So how can you keep your dogs off the couch and your cats off the counter while preserving the peace in your house? There’s a few different options for you to try that will help you regain your sanity, or at least stop you from covering your couches in plastic like Grandma...
When your pet training efforts just aren’t keeping your pets from trying to claim their spot on your couches and counters, a pet training mat can be an extremely handy tool. A pet training mat can be placed on any surface you’d like to keep your pets away from. When your pet jumps up, the training mat sets off a vibration that will scare your pet away from those surfaces. The vibration doesn’t shock or harm your pet, but it will make them shy away from your couch.
If you’d like a solution a little less visible than a pet training mat, you can try using a spray pet deterrent. The spray pet deterrent is much smaller than the pet training mat, but it is just as effective in keeping your cats off the counter and your dogs off the couch. You just place it near the area you’d like to keep your pet away from, and when they get too close, a safe, unscented spray will tell them that the area is off-limits.
Another solution for when you are around to observe your pet’s behavior is using ultrasonic sound for pet correction. A hand held pet training device enables you to set off a harmless high frequency sound to alert your pet to their unacceptable behavior. Once your pet backs away from the counter, couch or other area you are trying to keep them from, be sure to reinforce this corrected behavior with positive attention to your pet.
When you are not home, you can block off entire rooms of your house from your pets so you’ll never have to worry about them being where they’re not supposed to. A progressive correction system can be set up in the “human-only” parts of your home that will warn your pets to keep out. The pet correction system helps train pets to keep out of rooms and off of furniture for you by sensing when your pet is near and automatically sending out a mild stimulation and audible tone that will safely let them know that they don’t need to go in there.
With all these helpful solutions, there’s no need for you to raise your voice or fear that your furniture is in under the threat of attack ever again!
It only took one paw touch (on the low setting) on the PetSafe ScatMat Training Mat to keep my dog away from the "trouble area." I've recommended it to several friends who agree. Great training tool!

My little 5 month old kitten is naturally exploring her new domain daily and the kitchen counter is no exception. My orchid plants are my babies, and I certainly do not want a little furry creature knocking them over. I placed the SssCat Automated Pet Deterrent on the counter and it easily picks up any detection of movement! The warning beep and then the spray, and my little explorer was speeding away as fast as she could go. She still has not returned to the counter, so this product is well worth the money.
