My two started sleeping with me at about 12 weeks old. I didn't expect them to sleep with me so early, it just sort of happened. We had a few days of hot weather and the pups were being really restless in their crate. Panting, pacing, whining. So when I got up to let them out to potty, I just put them back on my bed to see if they would sleep. They immediately went to sleep on their backs and didn't move the rest of the night. I am single and I plan to stay that way, so I had always planned on having the dogs sleep with me. Since they were doing fine with it we just went with it. I love it! They do definitely sleep longer. My concerns were that I would squish them or kick them off the bed. They each fell off the bed one time, but they were fine, and now I think they know the boundaries. I find that I am naturally more careful about where I sleep and stay aware of where they are. I will say I am concerned about them sleeping with me before they are fully potty trained because I have one that is getting very comfortable with jumping onto a bench at the foot of my bed, and soon I envision him jumping down to the floor and leaving me a present! But, hopefully the potty training will keep advancing so that is not a problem. When they are older I will let them have the run of the house so they can sleep where they want to, but I sure hope they decide to sleep with me. Who wouldn't want to snuggle with a Havanese?
