|03rangerxlt||I've always took this to be pack behavior. The dog knows and loves you as a pack member or pack leader. When my wife and I curl up on the couch to watch TV at the end of the day, its not too long after that both of our dogs are laying on top of us! We're one big happy pack!|

I'm not worried about it, just curious. I would like to have some insight into his behavior is all. It makes me laugh when he does it, he is so careful and thoughtful about the whole process too.
Allie seems to think I am a bed unto myself honestly. If I'm in a position where she can lay on me, she will be laying on me(outside of bed, there she snugs up to me). I encourage contact, as it does strengthen the bond.

if there is should a thing as claiming, so what. i love when my dog
sits on my feet, jumps on the bed with us, lays beside the sofa when
both of us are taking up all of the room on the sofa, jumps on the sofa
with us, claiming is a good thing in my opinion. i claim my dog. why
shouldn't he claim me or us? claiming, i think that's a part of bonding.

|Baillif||I've been letting my dogs do it since they were tiny little pups. Haven't found a reason to stop them yet. Other than the occasional accidental elbow in the crotch.|

My boy is always sitting on top of me he can't stay off of me no matter where I am. I guess it's like a security thing for them .

My does the same. One snuggles, one sits literally on top. Just a weird dog IMO haha
