I hate to admit this, but like when a child sleeps better with their teddy, I sleep better with my Angel (dog). If she is at the foot of the bed, I pick her up and lay her next to me and fall asleep like this until she gets too warm. Most of the time I find her way under the covers by the foot of the bed in the morning. She's my natural sedative!

My dog, a shi tzu, a breed known to love human beds, sleeps on my bed. She knows the routine so even before I go to bed, she will be on my bed. I put her at the bottom if she hasn't set herself there but if she gets cold (even though I cover her during the night), I will find her next to me for warmth.

Does your dog always have to be on some part of you? I have two and I typically look like I have a Shih Tzu blanket on me when I am sitting or lying down! One on my lap and the other on my legs which are resting on an ottoman. Let's not forget the other two that find some open space on me to rest also!!

My Cocker Mix sleeps right next to me! He is like velcro, always attached to me so when I go to bed he usually jumps up at the end and will either lay against my legs or he will lay under the blankets up by me. My husband gets annoyed because I usually go to bed first and when he tries to come to bed, Tazz will jump up and lay in his spot. The only way my husband can get into bed is by paying a toll ....lol....Which is a treat for the doggie!

My pooches sleep in their beds in our bedroom. They'd be on the bed if they could, but that's not going to happen as the bigger dog likes to sprawl!

My 11 mo. old (she'll be 1 yr. old in 4 days) female pug sleeps with me and neither one of us would have it any other way.

Our lab and my daughter's lab (who spends a lot of time with us) sleep on their beds in the family room or the sofa whichever feels most comfortable at the time. But our JRT is right in between us on our bed. She is like a little furnace and heats my side of the bed up before I come in (husband and she goes to bed first). When I come in, she goes under the covers about half way to the bottom. I'm so concerned with one of us rolling over on her that I wake up during the night and put my hand on her belly to make sure she is still breathing. She, also, takes afternoon naps with her body under the covers but her head on the pillow....just like a person.

Our 1 year old lab just graduated to her own area in our room, outside of her crate. We don't want her on the bed, and my husband doesn't want her to be in the crate overnight. His thinking is what's the point of having a dog and keeping her in a crate overnight-she won't be very scary to an intruder that way. She still has her crate open and available to her if she wants it, but I think since we've set up the new arrangement she's been sleeping next to the baby gate that keeps her area separate from ours. Once we know that she's ok like this, and is not going to eat anything she finds in our area, then she'll be able to sleep anywhere in our room-just not on our bed.
