Small Dogs and Jumping off the Bed

Image result for Small Dogs

Many dogs sleep in their owner’s beds with them. This is especially true for small dogs. Some dogs take naps on the big bed or just to hang out there to be at a high level. However, your small dog could get hurt if he jumps off the bed. From that height, your dog could injure his feet, sprain or break a leg, plus shoulder and elbow injuries are possible. Worse yet, your dog could injure his back. Sometimes the injury worsens over time. One jump may not cause immediate damage but repeated jumps can cause a progressive injury.Then one day your dog appears to have a significant injury. Train your dog to use ramps or stairs to get up and down from the bed or other furniture. Supervise your dog whenever he is on the bed. Anticipate and prevent leaps when theyare liable to occur.
