My bed is now surrounded by x-pens. The corgi loves to use his stairs to get up on the bed, but not so much to get off the bed. He refuses to understand that hopping off the bed is the really dangerous part.
Compression of the spine and all...
We have purchased a new bed that is lower, but we are waiting to set it up until we are in the new home.
Last night we had a discussion. I told him his options: X-pens around the bed forcing him to use the stairs and only the stairs; or all-crate-all-the-time when in the bedroom.
Corgi and husband both cannot bear the thought of lost corgi-in-bed privileges so we are trying the x-pens.
The Schnauz HATES it. Of course, he hates change so that makes sense.
Even though the Boo agrees x-pens are a better option than a crate he finds them very annoying. He feels they severely inhibit quick exits from the bed for exciting events, like when John decides to have a late night snack.
