We didn't bother to 'fight the battle', we just caved. But we are talking 2 JRTs here. Picture the pressure blankets they advertise for helping you sleep better...now picture your sheet, blanket and quilt with a JRT (or dog of choice) on either side of you. It is like being swaddled. Works great on cold nights, as long as you don't like to roll over or move at all while sleeping.I fought the battle for two months with my previous guy...finally gave up.
On the upside, during the cold months it was like having a full length heating pad on my back.
