Sofa Guard Alarm (Image courtesy Pro-Idee)By Andrew Liszewski

While you can train your pets to stay off the furniture while you’re home there’s really no way to tell if they’re going to behave while you’re away. The Sofa Guard not only helps train your four legged friend to keep off the couch but can also make sure they stay off when you’re not watching.

It’s basically a 4 1/2 foot long mat with embedded sensors that you simply lay out on whatever furniture you want to protect. As soon as your dog or cat jumps onto the mat a loud 105 decibel alarm will sound which pretty much ensures they’ll be jumping off just as quickly. The alarm will only sound while the pet is actually on the mat which should help the owner keep some of their sanity depending on how persistent the animal is.

The Sofa Guard is available from Pro-Idee for about $37.
