Sleeping on MY bed!

I blame myself... but I need to retrain this dog to sleep somewhere else besides my bed! I would be happy with the floor, a dog bed, a crate, one of my kids' beds... anything but my bed!

He is super attached to me and wants to be with me 24/7... any advice on how to break this awful habit?

TIA!

BENNY

No help here. My velco dog is attached to my feet by an invisible 1 ft tether.

hyperattachment is much the same as separation anxiety. here's an article http://abapdf.s3.amazonaws.com/Media...attachment.pdf

I love sleeping with my Henry. Of all the men I've been with - and it was the 60's so you can just imagine - Henry is the best in bed!!!

you kill me. Yeah I needed that, as the last two weeks has been very stresssing. My BIL finally passed away from cancer. Gwen spent the last three days at the hospital, and even slept there. He's at peace finally.

Interesting article, but luckily, Benny isn't that bad... he just likes to sleep in my bed!

Oh yes. Marlowe isn't bad at all. I just prefer it because he'll wake up when we do rather than at the crack of dawn to go play (as he did in his crate). I'm suspicious when he's not at my feet. It means he's being naughty
