Sleeping Place

Hi all,

My quesiton is: How do I get my 15 month old to sleep where I would like him to sleep. He's been used to sleeping in his kennel since I had him as a very young pup. Ideally I would like him to sleep on the floor of my bedroom or even outside of my bedroom. He sleeps very well in his crate and doesn't make a sound all night and obviously relates crate to sleep, so I don't know how difficult this could be.

Thanks

Is there a reason you don't want to let him keep sleeping in his crate?

Close the door to your room?
Alternatively keep getting up when he does and place him where you want

maybe try putting his crate in your room, then leave the door unlatched a few times see how he does then leave it open? That way he can still enjoy the comfort of his crate but he will still be in your room...
