...stop Dooby from landing on the light shade? I don't really care about the shade itself, I just don't want Dooby to bite the wires, so I'd rather not have him land on there at all. I've made him get off everytime and said "No" to him in a firm voice, but the little darling (gritted teeth) doesn't seem to grasp that. LOL!! So, if you have any tips to try and get him to stay away from the shade, I'd be really grateful.

Squirty bottle or a water pistol. Set it to stream and use a different coloured one to what you mist him with so it's not associated. That's how i keep my guys off the wooden photo frames. :p Aim and FIRE!

Problem solved..............I've took the shade off! I put it on the floor for him to play with and he doesn't want it now!! It was all a great big game. Oh, yeah, he'll be saying "Naughty Dooby!" soon, I expect. LOL.
