Man that's really ruff. Sorry to say, but that bed isn't yours anymore and that's the tr-woof. Coming here to whine, but your barking up the wrong tree.
Sorry, that's not how dogs work. Your only option is to get a larger bed for yourself.
Punish your dog by eating its treats right in front of it.
I agree. I trained my dog when he was a puppy to sleep in his own bed. He is allowed to lay in my bed with me, but once it's bedtime he has to sleep in his own bed. While training him I kept his bed on my bed at first, then moved it to the floor, and slowly started moving his bed out of the bedroom. Now he sleeps in his bed just outside my bedroom door. Dogs will walk all over you if you don't train them. OP, I personally wouldn't stand for letting the dog get away with tearing up her new bed either. Make sure she knows that that behavior is unacceptable.
Getting a dog crate is a good start. My dog is allowed to sleep with me when my boyfriend isn't here (or sometimes, even when he is), but if I tell my dog "go to bed", he goes in his crate. And considering he lies in there in the middle of the day, when no one puts him in it, I'd say he's pretty happy to sleep in there.
Your pets should not be going on furniture by themselves. My dog has never been allowed on any couch or bed, but if I did allow him, it would only be if I initiated it (like I called him up). Sounds like your dog may have a bit of a dominance issue, and you are his subordinate. It's honestly not very hard to fix, you just have to actually work at it.
Eh, depends on the dog. Mine is a border collie, crazy smart, and knows exactly WHICH furniture he's allowed on (my bed, but not either of my parents' beds (guest room and master bedroom), the den couch, but not the one in the living room, my armchair, but only if he's wearing his hockey jersey, he's allowed on my lap when we're watching the game, but ONLY then), but if you don't mind pets on the furniture, no reason not to let them. As long as they get down when you tell them to. Jackson will get down off of anything I tell him to, and stay off, but if it's something I don't mind him on, he has free reign to sleep on it whenever he wants. As long as they know you're the one in control. Right now, he's sleeping on my feet. Which is nice. He keeps them warm.
Been there. Better learn to live with it and get a bigger bed. Large dogs have a way of getting to sleeping wherever they want.
My mom once bought a chew toy for my puppy for Christmas and it was torn to shreds in 5 minutes. Wait why am I telling my story in the comment section of someone else's story? how insensitive of me
That's okay. If my lab gets a squeaker toy, within minutes the squeaker and the toy are no longer connected. He doesn't get very many toys now. :P Just Rawhide bones that he eat like candy. It scares me though, he has a fused spin, and the fusion is in his lower back which causes him digestive problems, coupled with the fact no one taught him to chew his food :P. Ahh he's more of a human than dog.
This is what my lab does if no one is at the house for more than 10minutes. He essentially throws a fit and fucks up everything he can move.. It's kinda' nice having someone miss you that much... Then again, he is the most annoying beggar I've ever met..
Destroying things in the house that belong to you (you bought the dog bed, it belongs to you) is the dog exhibiting dominant behaviour, as is peeing on the bedfurniture. This behaviour needs to be stopped at once, otherwise the dog will start disregarding commands that you issue and do what it wants. Teachtrain your dog that it is not acceptable behaviour.
Destruction depends on the age of the dog, and also the personality of the dog. My dog wouldn't ever destroy his bed, or pee on anything, but he'll shred Kleenex if you leave it where he can reach it, because he thinks that's fun and outweighs the consequences. If it's a puppy? It's because the dog isn't trained yet. My last dog destroyed the first dog bed we got her. By the time she was a year old? She was fine alone in the house, because she was past the stage where she'd destroy anything. She still had an occasional fondness for the plastic bits on the end of your shoelaces, but I think she chewed maybe six of those in her entire lifetime. Not a big deal, at any rate.
