What are peoples views on basenji's in the bed?
I have 2 pugs and a labrador and they all sleep in/on the bed and always have done. They all get on great, no issues or problems and it saves on my heating bills :p They're quite happy to not sleep in the bed if i dont want them too so i dont have any problems with that..
But, Tuesday night Maya was upstairs watching a movie in bed with us and i fell asleep. Woke up at 5am with her snuggled up fast asleep on the pillow so i left her there til i got up. She is clean, doesn't pee at night so it wasn't a problem.
Last night, she obviously decided the bed was more comfortable that HER bed and was sat on the bottom step of my stairs (i have a baby gate to stop them running up the stairs) waiting to go up after she'd had her dinner :rolleyes: So, she slept in the bed again last night.
She is no trouble at all, snuggles straight down and doesnt move all night. She's quite happy to go into her pen downstairs, but she just prefers sleeping in the bed!
What do people think of this?? We always tell people, when they have one of our pups, to put their crate/pen in a room that isn't in the bedroom and leave them to settle in that (ie, if they cry, leave them to it) and i did that at first and we had no issues at all. And now, she gets into her bed in her pen and goes straight to sleep when i go to work in the morning So i cant see that its doing any harm, and she most likely would have ended up in the bed when she was toilet trained (which she seems to be already??? ) so i guess we've just skipped the few months of training i had with the other dogs…
