Nothing like a warm tounge in your ear at 0 dark 30 when you're dead asleep.

My dog Lanee will start off sleeping with me; then after an hour or two, she goes into the utility room (spare bedroom full of storage) where there is a large couch; she hops onto it and sleeps. She thinks that couch is heaven, so that's fine with me. She can have it.

My dogs dont even come up stairs, dogs shed and have an odor no matter how often they are washed..lol. All three know they are not allowed to climb the stairs and dont try it. Solid boundaries contribute to easier living. Just the act of creating no go zones re enforces your position in the pack structure.

I don't think so...although I cant get Berlin to sleep in my bed if my life depended on it. Lately he has been jumping up there with me for a few minutes, but he is obsessed with sleeping in his crate.. (although he has made my bed the official spot to bury his high value treats/toys/bones..lucky me!)

For the first 18 months, Finn slept in his kennel our bedroom. Part of it was that we wanted to establish pack structure, the other part was that, as a puppy, he loved to chase after the cats. After that, we let him on the bed after we minimized the kitten chasing. Since then, he'll sleep on the bed, but he gets down if asked with no issue.

Maya does start of with us, then starts panting then jumps down. Same thing every night. Yes she is hairy, but she keeps my feet warm for a while.

I let Yager every now and then but most nights I put him in his crate. When he does sleep with us he has to wait beside the bed until we get settled and pat the bed for him to come up. He is then only allowed at the foot of the bed and never up by our heads or the sheets. He is quick to get off if I tell him to. Honestly, I think he listens better after I have let him sleep with me. Almost like he's grateful or something.

I did have a dog when I was a child that would growl at you when you tried to get him off of the bed. That is serious issue for sure. He was such a grumpy old bear and never a people pleaser. lol

I let my girl sleep with me 2 nights in our first week, she was beating her nose up in the cage and has a pink spot. I figured out-DUH, that a towel over the cage quiets her right down, not a whimper. No more bed for her ever- Sure, lol.

Fiona is free to sleep wherever she wants. She has not wanted to sleep with me on my bed for months. It is cold, so I want her on my bed now. Free heat.

Its all personal preference... I had always let Diesel choose where she wanted to sleep, she had a dog bed in the room so she would generally start out on the bed with me and then once I was almost asleep she would normally jump down and lay on her own bed until morning when she would jump back up for a little bit while I was waking. I never had any problems at all with her she was a very obedient dog who knew I was the pack leader.
