I'm not a fan since my doggies do roll around in yucky stuff. I know most people don't agree but I find the dynamics of working with doggies a lot easier when you set boundaries and rules like don't go on the bed or stay off a particular couch.

Tell that to mine that decides at 4am to cry in my face...I tell her to lay down, she cries again and noses me, I move over, she jumps up and gets real cuddly. Lets put it this way, I still have not turned on the heat...I have dogs

Hubby has allergies too so we gotta keep them off of and out of certain rooms/places! I wish we didn't need the heat yet! Brrrrr!

I wish I'd never started letting the dogs on the beds(or sofa). I kept pups in a crate by the bed until they outgrew the crate. Then when they were safe to be out of the crate, they could have free roam at night.
My bedspreads have been snagged and the one I have now, I really love, but it has holes in it from the dogs nails.
Most often the dogs go on it when we aren't home, Karlo will lay on my feet right when I go to bed, but he jumps down after a bit/probably gets too warm for him. I love my footwarmer!
When my DH leaves early in the am, Onyx takes his spot. Very routine how the dogs are!
I don't think letting them on, or not on the bed is a biggie as far as 'dominance' goes, when I tell them to get off they do.

I wouldn't let my foster on furniture as I didn't want him thinking it was ok when he went to his new home.

I'm trying to see how long it takes before I have to turn it on..I even sleep with the window slightly open and a fan on. The golden is a big boy and he stays on the bed all night, right up against me..so I'm always warm, sometimes I kick the covers off.

I wish bubbles would sleep with me. She won't stay still and she runs around so she sleeps in the bathroom.

Singe has only slept on the bed once - when we were in a motel overnight for a trial. I ended up making him get on the floor because he was perking up to check out every noise from outside.
I wondered if he would try to get on the bed when we got home but it seems the thought never crossed his mind.
He did love that motel though! When he first got on the bed, he was bouncing like a little kid lol

My boy is allowed in our bed but only when I invite him up and he knows to get off when told. He usually spends only about 20-30 minutes with us before he gets too hot and lays on his carpet next to me. It might be different if I didn't have a husband go TDY (work trips) all the time, Vader makes up for the empty space when hubby is gone.

When I convince Cowboy to get up into the bed, he will lay there for awhile just to make me happy, I think - then he gets down when he thinks I've fallen to sleep.

My dogs do not sleep on my bed but they are allowed up and must get down when told. Lakota was a princess in another life and must have something cushy to lay on. She has the most bed privelges of any of my dogs. Usually when my husband gets up in the morning, she takes his spot. On weekends she usually will come up on the bed in the morning curl up at the foot of the bed and she has to have her head on me. The kittys usually have the foot of the bed when it's cold.
I don't like them on my sheets, but I don't care about the comforter I can throw it in the wash easy enough.
I figured when my husband was in the hospital she'd sleep in the bed with me but she didn't, she slept in her own bed.
