Dog Sleep in Your Bed? - Jim Burwell's Petiquette

Wading into treacherous waters here talking about whether it’s good or bad for if you have your dog sleep in your bed!

There have been many heated discussions between me and dog owners. You might even be thinking, “That’s why I got a dog Jim! Now you’re telling me I can’t have my dog sleep in my bed?”

It Doesn’t Matter What I Think About You Having Your Dog Sleep in Your Bed


Here’s the deal. The most important thing I want to share with you is that you understand that there are three behavior problems that can develop as a result of your dog sleeping with you night after night. You may not realize what’s happened until the problem has already developed.


Sleeping with My Dog Is Okay


We’re going to cover 3 dog behaviors that MAY arise from sleeping with your dog.

Did any of these dog behaviors sound familiar?

If you see any of these symptoms developing in your dog, think about getting your dog his very own personal bed and put it next to your bed and couch. Give your dog his own bed and give love and affection in moderation but only after a sit.

See, I didn’t tell you that you couldn’t sleep with your dog. I simply made you aware that problems can arise. If you see any of these 3 problems, fix them sooner than later.

This is going to make a great discussion. I’m dying to hear your thoughts on this.

Tell me below in the comments!
