Our new boy Fred is developing some dominance issues with us, mainly due to us being lazy and not properly training him. So, starting today he no longer has couch priviledges and we'll be working on other things as well. (edit: by the way, this site is amazing when looking for information on things like this!) My main question is: he's very affectionate and loves to cuddle, which my wife loves about him... can she occasionally sit on the floor with him and cuddle or would this defeat the purpose of keeping him off the couch? Or is this something that down the line would be okay, but not for awhile? Thanks everyone!
