Sleeping in your bed, do you allow it?

I've seen some topics saying you shouldn't let your dog sleep in the bed with you, I just wanted to see if that was false, or if there is something to it

No pets in the bed for us. To me it's nothing more than not wanting a hairy/dirty dog in my bed. Not to mention I have sleep issues and don't want to fight for a place in my own bed. They have their beds, I have mine.

He sleeps in the room with us, but not in the bed.

I don't know about facts but it seems to me that if you let them sleep in the bed with you they bond to you better. That's just been my experience tho.

My dog usually gets up when I call him up to cuddle in the morning, but I need space while I sleep and he is a bed hog, plus he gets too hot at night. Sometimes during the day I will take a nap and he will come up on the bed and cuddle for an hour or two.

Shasta is allowed on the bed if she's invited up when both my husband and I are in bed. If my husband is out of bed and up for work, she's allowed up. Both are allowed under the condition that the blankets are pulled up. We have dog beds in the room though and she lays on those most of the time. Its a preference thing. She wasn't allowed up until she was 100% potty trained. She'll be 4 in May.

We don't only because our two smaller dogs do not get along with the shepherd. It's not fair to crate some and let others sleep in the bed so they all sleep in their crates at night. If we only have the shepherd OR the smaller dogs in the house then I allow whichever dog is hole in the bed.

Yes. Lisl is allowed on the bed but she doesn't usually stay all night. She will get back up early in the morning a lay next to me.
