Default Do you let your dogs sleep in bed with you?

I've heard a lot of different responses to this question, for a lot of different reasons.

I let my dog sleep with me because she was never crate trained, and if she's alone at night to roam about the house she normally finds trouble, like garbages, stuffed baby toys, and the cat box.

She has a designated spot on my bed though, and.. I'm kinda afraid of the dark and want to be alerted if anyone's sneaking into my room ^^

I let Ponki sleep on the bed with me. She's crate trained, has never gotten into anything at night and she's a late sleeper. She usually sleeps at least 30 more minutes after I have gotten up and started to get ready for work.

I kinda see it as a reward for her for good behavior. She loves to snuggle and also has a designated area on my bed.... call me crazy, but I can't go to sleep unless she is curled up on the bed next to me.

My have had a poodle sleep with me since I was 5 years old. Now that my Katie passed away, and I don't have my puppy yet, it's extremely difficult to sleep. I sleep with her blanky and know that both of my previous little girls are looking after me. It's a wonderful thing to know they are listening, or to get a nose snuggle into my armpit when it's cold, or to hear her snoring! LOL. I understand it's not for everyone.

My hubby really got used to her being there too. He's been sleeping with a little beanie baby poodle. He misses her snuggles. For a toy poodle, there were times she could take up the entire King size bed!

Moose used to sleep on the bed but since we moved to land of no concrete or asphalt he is always dusty and dirty... so only right after a bath does he get his one night. We didn't let him normally anyway since he tosses and turns a TON.

LOL....Katie would sometimes stand beside me waiting for me to wake up, or give me a soft nudge, like Let's go!

Moose is so tall. I'm sure that would be quite a sight.

I think it depends on the dog. If the dog is well behaved and not dominant, then I see no problem with it. I let my Maltese sleep in the bed b/c he's little, it keeps him from marking during the night and he's clean. My Rottie doesn't b/c he's really too big and too dirty. He's also crate trained is perfectly happy sleeping in his crate.


When my brother and SIL were here for Xmas, they brought all three dogs w/ them. I ended up sharing a twin size air mattress with a Spoo and a Pitbull. (The Chihuahua slept w/ them.) Even though I had no room, I have to admit they made good bed buddies. The pit's coat is just like velvet and you guys know how soft spoos are.

BFF, my boxer snores so loud I swear it shakes the bed! She also has very vibrant dreams and kicks often in her sleep, so if I have her right next to me I run the risk of getting kicked in the middle of the night, hehe.

My boyfriend snores too, so I just sleep with ear plugs in.

Spoos are so cuddley and flexible, I'm jealous you got to snuggle in with one, Harley. (:

No, Ry doesnt sleep with me. He is so big, and is a bed hog! Im a bed hog myself, so it just doesnt work. He starts out really compact and tight right behind your knees, after awhile though he unwraps, and takes up so much space! He loves to be on the bed though, and sometimes i will wake up with im on the bed cause he snuck up. I dont mind that.
I actually Really love to take naps with him and the cat!! Riley doesnt move, and is warm, and its just cozy. Riley has his own dog bed in my room on the floor though that he sleeps on. Works for us. If i travel with him then i let him on the bed to stay close to me (for his sake and mine!).

No, but I hope when she's older she can sleep in her own bed instead of a crate. I'm not a fan of dog on my bed.

Yes, and she is a great foot warmer.
I only really let her sleep on the bed because that was what she did when we got her, and how we continued to do. I didn't know much about dogs back then, and she is incredibly fluffy and warm, so I let her sleep there.

She does have her own bed, and sometimes she jumps off and sleeps on it, but most of the time she is on my bed.
