Set up house rules early on

Do you want pets to remain off furniture, or are they allowed free range? Or perhaps, you will allow them on your bed but not on couches. Whatever your preferences are, start enforcing these rules immediately. Again, the earlier you start conditioning your pet, the easier it will be for them to pick up good habits. When you have an area where pets cannot be on furniture, keep a comfortable bed or blankets for them to relax on; having their own cozy area will deter them from wanting yours. The same rules apply for outdoor pets. For example, if you do not want your pet climbing on your embankment, implement the rule immediately and provide them an area in which they are allowed.
