Hi! Been listening to you pretty often over the last two months and especially more since we got our new puppies! I heard you mention in one of your episodes that your dogs know its not "rough house play time" inside the house basically... and I was wondering how your taught your dogs to know the difference? My puppies love to play like this inside and outside, I guess it didn't bother me until they started to figure out how to jump on the couch and play there, which is a problem since the couch is leather. Anything helps! :) Thanks in advance!

thank you! house training our puppy has been a trying experience for our family! Hopefully these tips help. my husband seems to think rubbing her nose and spanking her and then ignoring her or putting her in crate is the best way to teach her... 😢
