    DefaultSleeping in your bed

    How many of you let your dogs sleep with you? Our 4 month old lab sleeps with us - at the foot of the bed with his head resting on my legs. It's so cute..but am I setting myself up for disaster when he's bigger? Or when flea/tick season is upon us?

    We are a no-dog-on-the-furniture household. Parker has two beds of his own: One in our bedroom and one in the family room. We don't sleep on his, and he doesn't sleep on ours.

    My older dog sleeps on the bed, puppy in the crate. The puppy, Maxx, is almost 8 mos old and has the option of being on the bed - he just gets too hot and prefers his crate. The crate door is open and he does start on the bed.

    Both of my girls sleep in bed with me.
    They didn't when they were younger-they slept in their crates until they were well over a year old.

    My 2 sleep in our bed. It is harder when they get older because you have to fight for room!Duke is 81 lbs and Paisley is 74. They both rarely stay on the bed all night though. I like having them sleep with us, I'd miss them if they didn't!

    ETA: They both have slept in bed with us since about 12 weeks.

    No way will any of mine get in my bed or on my furniture. Alpha controls where the dogs sleep. Plus I'm allergic to dogs so I would die if they were in the bed with me. Besides, they are bed hogs and I like to sprawl when I sleep, not cling to the edge of the bed and worry about falling out.

    Nellie sleeps with me but usually ends up going to her own bed. Bailey was unable to jump up so he slept in his bed.

    Sophie has slept with us from the beginning. She is quite a snuggler. At night I will say, Sophie, Mama's going to bed, and she'll head in and jump on the bed and snuggle down for the night. A lot of the time she sleeps between us flat on her back! As far as fleas, we use the Comfortis pill and have no flea issues. She will wake us up about 6 or 7 am go potty and come hop back in bed. I am so used to sleeping with her, that I don't think I could sleep without her...
