I have posted a survey about that very subject. It seems that about half of people sleep in bed with their GSDs. Here it is https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...-bedrooms.html

He prayeth well who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast;
He prayeth best who loveth best
All creatures great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth All.

No, now it's too hot to be with us in the bed. It's so hot here, that we had to move mattress out of bedroom to colder room.

She just stolen our fan. So we bring second. And now she has both. Good night!

Never in the beds for sleeping, dogs are welcome to come up in the morning once the wife and I are awake and call them up.

Sleeping in beds if for humans only. Couches are generally fair game. we have two so there is usually sitting room as well for us, if not dogs are told down and they comply quite readily.

Our GSD is still only 10 weeks and his crate is at the foot of the bed, the Heeler Mix has her dog bed on my side and the Border Collie who refuses to use a dog bed. she prefers sleeping on the wife side of the bed

Yes but more often than not he ends up on the floor or his bed after a bit then back up when he hears my alarm in the morning.

My dog is weird - all summer he happily slept in the lounge on the carpet, now that winter is approaching he wants to sleep outside in the cold on the concrete

Does your dog sleep with you

Max will sleep in bed every night. Luna will sleep in bed in stints some weeks itís every night then she will take breaks and sleep down stairs. One thing I find they sleep in the same spot all night which I never had a dog that did that lol! Dogs are clean and they donít seem to smell so they are allowed in the bed. Sometimes my chihuahua will sneak i from my daughter bed in my room.

Max, Newlie and now Rocky have all slept in bed with me during their time. I don't remember Max ever getting down on the floor at night, but Newlie did quite a bit and Rocky does some. They get hot, I think, so jump down on the floor and then jump back up after a bit. I have become so used to it that I don't even notice, they just do their thing while I am dead to the world.

My gal-dog jumped up on the bed about a half hour before it was time to get up and decided that she had an itch! The entire bed shook as she scratched but my hubby and I dealt with it. Good thing she doesn't do that all the time.

Yes I sleep with the fan even in winter so the room is always super cool so I’m sure it is why they don’t get overheated and comfortable. Gsds seem to overheat fast when sleeping lol!
