VTGirlT My dog is allowed on the bed. Only as long as she always gets off when i tell her to do so. Which I haven't had a problem with yet, but if she does ever give me a hard time.. She looses the privilege.

As for sleeping with me. Lately she will last 10-15 minutes laying on the bed with me before she gets off the bed on her terms, it use to be she would get off a few minutes after i went to bed. I personally want her to stay on the bed! Zelda is not super cuddly, she is very sweet, she just is not a cuddly dog and may never be! But she is only a little over a year old, so she has time.
So whatever Zelda go sleep on your own bed! lol

sarah1366 I have two shepherds kane comes up on bed for cuddles but don't like it when we move our feet he moans then gets down goes to his own bed witch is side of ours romany gets on bed for cuddles and kisses then curls up between us she only really move if she gets warm then she may lay in her own bed for short time but we don't mind and kane loved the sofa we share it with him but we also have leather sofa but knows not allowed on that one so never attempts it I see it as only me and hubby so if we get visitors they accept how it is with dogs as have spare sofa for anyone visiting anyway but they happily will move for visitors anyway

I let them on any furniture

I see it this way you have to choose first of all, what furniture they are allowed on and what is not. I, for one, will never change the rule after it has been made so the dog does not get confused. Now i do let them on my bed, couches, and their own bed. tables, counters, and chairs they are not allowed on at all. For the most part my GS likes the floor because it a lot more cooler than the bed (and since i live in phoenix it gets quite hot here), my shih tzu mix loves beds and wouldn't mind being in the blanket. And Really it is the dogs choice because honestly if they are comfy there why change it?

I know, that's the dilemma lol
