How do ppl feel about dogs/pups sleeping in their bed?

Lincoln is 7 1/2months and we usually crate him, but last night he fell asleep in our bed and I just left him there. He was good as gold and we both enjoyed having him there with us.

My question is : Do people thinking letting a young pup sleeping with them might have a negative effect somehow?

Jazzy sleeps on our bed every night. She curls up in a tight little ball and is quiet as a mouse. I've never found it a problem.

Atticus sleeps on our bed. He starts out on the floor, on his pillow, and around 3am he delicately comes up and lies between the two of us. He loves to be snuggled and cuddled with.

Harley has slept in my bed since the day I adopted her. I don't think I could sleep without my bully. However, I reserve the right to boot her, anytime, no questions asked. For me, it's important she realizes the bed is mine, it is a privilege, and it can be revoked any time. She has never drooled on my pillow :wink:

I used to let mine sleep in the bed until we got 2...then it was too much. We went and got a twin bed and butted it up next to ours and that is their bed now. I had no problem at all with one sleeping in the bed but 2 was way too crowded!

I dont allow the dogs up on our bed to sleep and they know the sofa is off limits
I get really bad sinus infections and keeping them off of were I sleep and sit helps a ton
They both have big soft doggy beds and they know that is were they are to sleep
Now Buster does sneak up on my bed when hubby goes to work in the morning and once I realize he is in bed with me
I make him get down.I like to keep my bed dog hair free un like the rest of my house :roll:

They do have an amazing way of sneaking their big old bodies up there, don't they? Very aloof for such a big dog.

We sometimes let Bella and Remy sleep in bed with us, usually only on the weekends or when they're totally wiped out by the time we're ready to go to bed. They tend to play bitey face or jump around the bed like idiots for at least 10 or 15 minutes if they're not really tired when we let them on the bed. :) I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and return Remy to his crate because he moves around a lot in his sleep and sometimes growls and barks while he's dreaming. :lol:

I've let Legend sleep out of his crate in my room since was three months. Never had a problem. He also sleeps in my bed. Although he likes to sleep either on my chest like a baby or sleep right on my back. It was fine when he only weighed 30lbs @3 months but now that he's pushing 85lbs.(i weigh 105lbs) I'm kind of squashed. lol

My 70lb baby thinks she a lap dog and I love it. Growing up I've always had a dog sleep in my room, but I can barely stand letting my husband sleep in the bed, lol :D If I am watching tv in the bedroom she will come in a lay with me but she knows when bed time comes she goes to her own bed which is on the floor next to me. However, my husband gets up 2 hours before me and once he is out of bed and out of the bedroom she gets up, stretches and walks to his side and jumps up and she is out cold for the next 2 hours. I love it. The only time she sleeps in bed with the both of us is during a bad thunderstorm because it scares her a lot. Of course my dog snores and dreames a lot so she's always trying to catch the rabbit in her sleep and her legs move a mile a minute. Kinda funny though.

No dogs on the bed here!

They're not allowed on any furniture at all - no couches or anything...how mean are we!!!? It's one small and easy way for hubby and I to enforce our place as alphas. They each have their own beds, one on either side of our big bed.

(Though, if there were no hubby, I have to admit I might have a dog in my bed... :lol: )

You think you're mean?

Patch sleeps outside in his kennel!!!

He sometimes falls asleep on his little dog bed in the living room, next to the couch, and when we're ready to go to bed, we get up... then he wakes up and walks over to the back door, and he knows it's time for bed!

Patch isn't even allowed upstairs where the bedrooms are!

He is also not allowed up on the leather lounge or ANY furniture (even though sometimes i might let him up if he's good, and if he is still!).

He has his dog bed for indoors, in the living room.

and his kennel for outdoors... but his kennel is under the pergola, and has fluffy pillows and blankets, so it's comfortable for him!

now who's the meany?

i don't do the 'dog in the bed' thing.... different strokes for different folks!

My only tip would be - don't let him get used to something you aren't going to want him to do later on. With a young dog like that, make a decision where you want Lincoln to sleep and get him in a routine. Othwerwise he'll get used to sleeping on your bed and if you change your mind. he's not going to be a happy boy.

Our older dog Abraham has always slept in our bed with us, he's a 60-lb boxer/dalmatian mutt.

When we first got Grizwald I set up a "puppy bassinet" between our bed and the wall (it was a huge Rubbermaid bin lined with soft old blankets) so I could sleep with one hand on him until he figured out we'd still be there when he woke up.

Now that he's big enough to get on the bed we have both of them up there with us at night and that's cool. I don't plan on giving either of them mixed messages and changing my mind about it later. Abraham has slept with us for 10+ years with no problems.

What sucks is we bought a brand-new queen size bedframe and mattress before we got Griz (not knowing when we bought it we would have a puppy). We LOVE our new bed, we finally blew some money and invested in a super nice mattress and now, we're thinking life would be a lot better for all of us with a KING SIZE! The dogs are bed hogs. Abraham tends to curl up at the foot but he's still pretty bulky. And now Grizwald, who is pushing 30 lbs. at 5 months old, does that pitbull stretch-the-feet-out-behind him thing when he sleeps! So when he's on the bed between us he's all stretched out, and front paws to back paws he's as long as ME! (I'm 5'3) I imagine at 80+ lbs. it's gonna be unbearable. So we might have to sell our amazing bed and upgrade to a KING. $$$$$$$$ New sheets and comforters $$$$$$$$$$ :(
