My cat gets the run of the house. But he has the guest bedroom. He seems to understand that this room is HIS room and my room is mine. He literally does not come into my bedroom after I get into bed and doesn't come in until I wake up. (though he makes so much noise I might get up at 7 am)

Same as a dog - took her outside regularly as a young piglet and rewarded her for going. Now when she wants to go out she bangs on the blinds on the back door and we let her out.

Sometimes I move my pets if I want to sit where they are, or lay down where they are, or sometimes I let them stay. However, if I had friends over or family over, I would move the pet so that the human could sit down. Usually the only time it is a problem is bed time and the kitties are looking at me from the bed, and I have to move them to get into the bed, but then we all adjust and everyone is happy. Kit

I saw a tee shirt today that said cats over your hearts, then they take over your sofa and your bed!

Um, dogs do not need an alpha. That's VERY OLD DEBUNKED theory created from a study about wolves in captivity. No reputable animal behavioralist will tell you that. If you're watching Cesar Milan and believing what he says then I feel bad for your pets, since he's entirely uneducated and often harms animals more than helps them. Hence why EVERY animal group in the U.S. has denounced his methods.

Regarding the OP's question: my dogs live here. You don't. My dogs provide my unconditional love and support. You don't. Find somewhere else to sit. (That said, my dogs are pretty amiable and will move if you tell them to scoot over.)
