Does your hav sleep in your bed?

If yes,
1. Don't you worry the puppy will roll off the edge?
2. Does the puppy dig and dig in your bedding to make a nest for himself?
3. Does the puppy jump on your face from time to time?
4. At what age did the puppy start sleeping with you?
5. Is it possible to train the pup to sleep at the foot of your bed and if so, how?

Thanks in advance for your wisdom.

Yes, Lizzie sleeps with us. She started sleeping with us at about a year, I guess. At first, she slept at the foot of the bed and one night she fell off. I then started putting her between my and my husbands pillows. We have a king size bed and each use a standard size pillow so the amount of room between us is perfect for her.

Yes, she does occasionally dig and for some reason I always get her butt in my face!!! She then takes her nose and pushes the covers down the bed.

Tucker's been sleeping on the bed with us since he was 6 mos. old. I bought a quilted throw to put at the foot of the bed and he sleeps on it. We have a padded fabric bench at the foot of the bed and have never worried about him falling off as the bench would catch him. That was a needless worry for us as he's never fallen (so far). He uses the bench to get down from the bed. Every once in awhile he likes to sleep on the floor,but will want back on the bed later. We're thinking about getting doggie steps for him so he can get back up by himself. As far as digging, occasionally he'll dig on his throw before settling down. Tucker falls asleep downstairs and DH brings him up and puts him on the bed. Most night he goes right back to sleep immediately.

Both dogs have always slept in bed with us. Kodi slept in his sherpa bag for a while, then in bed with us. Shelby has slept in our bed since day one. Kodi sleeps between our pillows or on my pillow. Shelby starts out at the foot of the bed, but usually ends up right next to me. They have not fallen off the bed, but DH accidentally kicked Kodi off once.

DH means Dear Husband, no? occurs to me I've never asked and I know I used to think LOL meant lots of love. Thanks for letting me know.

We sometimes let Jasmine sleep with us, usually after we've been out late at night and don't want to put her right back in her crate .

1. Don't you worry the puppy will roll off the edge? I worry more about kicking her off but our bed has rugs on the floor around most sides. One time I woke up and she was on the floor - don't know how she got there, though!
2. Does the puppy dig and dig in your bedding to make a nest for himself? Yep! So cute.
3. Does the puppy jump on your face from time to time? Haha, yes. A lot.
4. At what age did the puppy start sleeping with you? Around four months old. It's only on "special" occasions, though.
5. Is it possible to train the pup to sleep at the foot of your bed and if so, how? Not sure. I would think it might be difficult. My sister's dog starts off at her feet and sneaks up during the night. Jasmine prefers to sleep down at the foot of the bed, as does our other dog and our cat.

I was wondering what DH meant, thanks! LOL! :-D

When Cass was tiny, I was afraid she would get hurt, falloff, or pee in the bed. let her sleep with us when I knew she could jump off herself. I think a week or so ago, she fell off because she kept insisting on sleeping on the outside edge of me. Then she wanted to sleep between my legs, and I don't like that because I move my legs alot and get too hot. She does do that nesting thing too. We have a king too and it's great when she sleeps in the middle like last night! She crawls over my neck in the morning. I just this week got out our step stool and now she can get on the bed by herself, but the only good place for it is right next to my night table, so I risk her jumping on top of me if I'm in bed before her!

Lucy is crazy about the digging and snorting in the bed. She lays of her side though and digs with her front paws. She's manic about it too. It's not just a gentle little dig dig lay down, it's dig dig dig snort dig dig dig snort for a long time. I thought she was crazy. Charlie doesn't do this. He lays calmly for a while and then hops down to sleep on the floor. Lucy remains in bed with us. She Wales me up by crawling on my face and licking me. I love it. We're both sleepy and warm and it's great cuddle time. When she really wants me up, she nibbles on my ear lobe.

Funny you should mention this...I just let my two puppies sleep in bed with me last night. They just turned 3 mos. old. They have been sharing a crate just fine, but the last few nights they have been panting and whining, a little bit restless throughout the night. I think it's because we have had a drastic change in temps in our area and they are hot! Anyway, I let them out about midnight last night and they slept just fine on the bed. One up by my head, one by my feet. Yes I am scared that they will fall out. I have carpeted floors and a bench at the foot of my bed, but it still worries me. They did not dig in the bedding they settled right in. They didn't get up for the rest of the night, and when the alarm went off they weren't in any big hurry to get up. I have been putting them in bed with me when we get up each morning for a few minutes, and they always act crazy and lick my face and run all over. It is so fun, I call it puppy frenzy. I guess I will play it by ear, but since I knew going in that I wanted them to sleep with me eventually I don't have a problem with it.
