Do you let your dog sleep with you in your bed

Postby Expert » Fri Sep 22, 2017 3:53 pm

I never believed in sleeping with a dog, however, I think this is fairly common practice. Perhaps some think this practice make for a more loyal dog?

Personally I am against it as I believe it creates mixed messages and attachment disorders.

IMHO It is better dog and I sleep in our own beds except maybe for a quick nighttime visit.

If I did sleep with my dog it would need to wear a negligee or I would feel very uncomfortable.

Bahaha...
As if it were my choice...wife wasn't going to let me crate it at night. You can see my first thread here to see how that worked out.

He is allowed in bed but it's a non issue, he gets moved and gets hot and moves to his doggy bed. He hops up in the morning about 6:30 AM.

Dog doesn't get on the bed unless told it's OK. Dog gets off the bed when commanded. Where's the mixed message?
I just hate seeing birds die of natural causes unless I'm that natural cause.

Our dog won't get on or stay on the bed if we're in it but will spend all day there.

When we had two Griffs, we also babysat two of KJ's Wirehairs for a few days. It was a blast spoiling his dogs and having all four in bed with us.

Yes.

Had her in my sleeping bag in ND one night it was so cold.

My wife had wisdom teeth extracted, and pup stayed with her all day. I've been sick and the same.

She knows who is the alpha... why not?

And, I love my dog to death!

Yea, can relate to that sleeping bag stuff. It was 17 outside, figured it was the same inside. She wasn't acclimated.

Actually, she did fine... my f...g feet were cold. :D

After spooning for about an hour I was tolerable, she got too hot and skidaddled.

Dogs are pretty filthy from running the fields, stepping in dog shite. I hope you people bathe you dogs before sleeping with them!

I'll remember that...

At least that is how it feels hunting with a 59 year old sxs that is newer than me!
