Refusing to Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

If you're worried about Fido and Sport lazing on your fancy furniture while you're busy at the office, Sofa Guard can help. Essentially, the all-new pet alarm is a 4 1/2 foot mat with sensors that you lay out on your prized possessions. As soon as your 4-footer sets a paw on the contraption, a 105 decibel alarm makes sure they hop off with equal vigor. Of course, if it works anything like the heavily-touted Bark Collar (which used to only go off when our office dog would scratch itself), it could end up confusing your dog more than training it.
