Where do your sleeping dogs lie?
For those of you with dogs, where do they sleep at night? Do you crate them? Do they have a doggy bed somewhere? Do they share the bed with you? Do they sleep in a dog house outside?
Our puppy has been crate trained since she was 8 weeks old, but at 10 months we recently started letting her sleep with us. She’s only about 35 lbs, but it has taken some adjusting to get used to her being there. She doesn’t curl up at our feet and stay there all night like some dogs. She likes to be right between us at the head of the bed, her back pressed up against me and her paws kicking my husband throughout the night. She also chooses this time to groom and scratch and do the “stand up-turn around-plop down” dance every few minutes until she’s comfy. There’s also the issue of controlling the fur on our sheets and blanket. Still, she’s very lovey at night, and I enjoy cuddling with my sweet pup and making her softly growl at me when I give her kisses against her will while she’s trying to snooze. :)
What are your experiences with sharing a bed with your dog(s)?
