Our 10 year old mini schnauzer has done this almost all of his life... however about 2-3 years ago, he got a little more nasty about it. Often times, my hubby will go to bed before me and Kramer goes with him -- when I come in and try to move Kramer, he will seriously growl, bare his teeth and has snapped at me, twice biting me. Even after I gently tried to wake him. (ETA: he is fully awake before I try moving him or touching him...)
Same thing happens if he is sleeping with my daughter and I try to move him off her bed.
He never did it while sleeping with me until one night I had dozed off on the couch when I had the flu and Kramer was sleeping with me. Hubby tried to move him and he growled, bared the teeth and snapped at him.
We quit letting him sleep with us because of it. It's the ONLY time he's ever acted that way.
I know that's very bad behavior on his part and we didn't really know what else to do except quit letting him sleep with us. He DID bite me...
Now, we are in a situation where we have bought a new house and trying to sell ours -- so hubby lives at the new house and I'm at the one for sale and Kramer DOES sleep with me every night. I feel safer with him.
