I am somewhat concerned as I have read that Bassets are not supposed to jump off the couch, the bed, etc. as it can cause back injuries.

I have had Geoffrey three weeks and this is something he really likes to do and since he is so quick it is difficult to stop him. My best success has been with the bed, which is the highest furniture (wait, I forgot about the times he got on the DR table and leaped off!!!- happened twice. Now I turn the DR chairs around so he can't get up there).

He is still getting on the couch (which is fine with me-I'm not that particular about the furniture) but I am concerned about the jumping off part.

Geoff is a very small Basset- fullgrown at 39 pounds. Hopefully this will mean his back isn't under that much of a strain.
