Thread: Dogs in Your Bed?

  1. #1

    Default Dogs in Your Bed?

    I have a little foxy Lucy. After a marriage breakdown Lucy and I have moved on and I am renting a little unit it has 3 rooms and is near the beach. Every day we go for walks along the water which she is loving.
    Anyway she has always slept with me in my bed yes under the quilt but on her own sheet.
    Since we have got here she is getting under the quilt through the day as well as at night?
    I am thinking its security for her I dont know if I should stop her getting under there through the day?
    I would like to know other opinions on this?
    Thanks Jenny

    No I wouldn't worry unless she is there excessively. She obviously likes it under there and it makes her feel safe and secure. If you didn't want her on your bed during the day then you could try getting her a crate and turning that into a nice safe little den for her to go into.

    I am assuming from the rest of your post she doesn't spend all day hiding under the covers? Like she comes out to be with you and to go for walks etc?

    Yes she comes out for walks and when I am sitting down on the computer she sits at my feet.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much like K&P said. If your happy for her to be there during the night, she's happy to have her naps there during the day haha

    My almost 5 month old staffy often sleeps in the bed, I don't have any problems any more (the boyfriend talked me into it lol) but Oskar altenates between on the bed and under the bed at the moment.
    So like the others have stated, I don't think its anything to worry about. She is maybe dealing with the change of scenario in her own little way.
    I'm sorry to hear about your marriage breakdown.

    My Crested goes 'missing' through the day all the time, you can guarantee if you move the doona around you will come across a wiggly lump in the bed.

    If your dog sharing the bed doesn't bother you - then there's no problem. You may find you have problems later if you ever decide you want to share your bed with a human so if that's something you think might happen - you may want to get the dog occasionally spend the night in her own bed by way of practice.

    My dog sleeps in a bed next to my bed - both beds are close to the same height so she's right with me but neither of us interfere with the the other's sleep. Ok her chewing and me tossing all the bedclothes off on top her can be an occasional problem but I feel quite secure with her there. Ie nobody is sneaking in on us.

    She doesn't like sleeping in my bed - cos I wriggle too much. And I get a sore back if she does - cos the bed isn't quite big enough for both of us.
