Should Your Dog Sleep In Your Bed?

We get this question a LOT! Should your dog sleep in bed with you? That depends entirely on whether you want them to.

There’s nothing inherently good or bad about a dog sleeping in bed (at least from a behavior perspective! My dog is a total bed hog!). Sometimes you might hear people say that letting your dog sleep in your bed will spoil them, or will make them "dominant"- but these things just simply aren't true.

So do what makes sense for you and your home.

*note: there ARE some cases where a dog's behavior in bed might mean they can't safely sleep there. This could include things like conflict with another dog, resource guarding the bed, or very rarely aggression issues around being woken/startled. If you're struggling with your dog around bed-related issues, please schedule a consultation!
