Our dogs sleep on their own beds in our bedroom. Well, Tora does anyway. Max likes to move around. He'll start off on the rug by my husband's side of the bed, move out to just outside of the bedroom door, I'll hear him plop down on one of the beds in the family room, and sometimes when I have to get up in the middle of the night, I'll see him laying by the front door.
I don't like my dogs in the bed with me because I really like my space to stretch out when I'm sleeping and it's too hard to get covers out from under a sleeping dog.
And I don't believe that a dog that doesn't sleep in the bed with you is any less bonded to you than one that does.
