Works for dogs, not so much with wives.

Mine encourages the dogs to lay on the dinette to stay out of her way.

Yet another advantage of the 5.0 TA. Beady eyed minituare schnauzers cannot make the leap off the top step up onto the bed.

Lori spent all last camping season putting foam matts together so the dog could get onto the bed, nothing worked. She wanted me to build a ramp. I just smiled and shook my head, no. Scott

Scott and Lori

There are definite parallels there. Many of the same training techniques can be employed. Have you ever noticed that folks with well behaved dogs, have well behaved kids?
