Thread: Slight Problem

  1. #1

    Default Slight Problem

    Sebbi loves sleeping in my bedroom door at night, snoring and farting his way through the night.

    I understand its a breed thing to sleep and protect their owners in door ways

    But it has to be uncomfortable, he wont sleep on his bed further intot he room or further out of the room and I not putting his bed in the door way itsself.

    Do I just leave him on the floor,
    Do I give in and put his bed int he door way
    Or do I train him to sleep else where ( given hes not the smartest dog)

    Is he in the way at all?

    I would throw a pillow or somthing for him to sleep on if he is insistant on sleeping there and won't take to the bed.

    No hes not in my way, i just step over him, its not a big bed room, I gave him a soft bed and blankets but he just moved to the carpet again

    lol no not mean at all, Leo prefers the carpet most times aswell, i have his own big dog pillow and blankets and he will go on the bed if i ask him, but then slinks off so only his back paws are on it lol

    I guess he just likes the harder surface for sleeping, just keep doing what your doing, offer him a pillow or bed close to where he likes to be and when he has enough of the cold floor he shold move.

    Thanks for the reassurance, looking at it now if he moved a foot to his left he could be laying in a bean bag, so I guess he licks it where he is
    He is sprawled out full length and I have the fan on for him, so I guess he is comfy

    His choice. Doof has a bed in my room and permission to be on the bed. He sleeps in the cat bed - don't ask me how be fits, the dog is obviously origami or prefers the cool tiles

    My husband snorts, snores and farts through the night. He should sleep on the dog's bed and the dog with me.
    Pretty, a blue heeler has her foam dog bed covered in hessian that I then I wrap in a rug thing.
    She tends to spend time on it, or on places on the floor. Her choice. She does not move though, (must work on that) so I have to be very careful getting up at night or I would trip over her. Last night she chose to sleep mainly on the couch in the lounge room.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Batty is in his crate or if (on the very rare occassion) I let him sleep in with me he curls up on the end of the bed. Not something I taught him to do. I did have to growl at him two or three times the first night because he wanted to play at 3 or 4 in the morning. The growling got him to settle and get back to sleep.

    Laying in door ways is a favourite of one of my dogs, can see things from all directions and not miss out on anything.

    As for comfort. Said same dog doesn't like the deeply padded bed, I think it makes her too hot, whereas the flat uncomfortable one suits her better.
