|Trigger has a good point...your dogs are MUCH too young and too small to be allowed to be jumping off a bed. Toy breeds are extremely prone to back and leg injuries, the majority of which occur due to the dog jumping off the furniture, including the bed.
My toy poodles are crated and, when old enough and housebroken, are taught to only use steps to get on OR off my bed. With consistancy, it is extremely simple to teach them that jumping on or off is not allowed, and it can save a fortune in vet fees. It is usually not a question of if it will get injured but a question of WHEN the dog will get injured.
I also agree with Trigger concerning the house training. Outside is the way to go. I have five toy poodles and they ALL do their thing outside, not in the house!
