Where does your pet sleep?
In a recent informal survey of dog trainers, 75 percent said their dog slept in bed with them.
One of my dogs sleeps with me, too. Is she dominant? No, I think she is comfortable.
Hey, she doesn’t snore or hog the covers, all and all I find her good company and quite pleasant.
Many trainers say it’s taboo to allow you pet in bed. That the animal is seeking status or guarding the best sleeping location.
That can be true, but mostly, I think our pets, especially our dogs, like to be with us.
What better way to bond than communal napping! Cissy Sumner, CPDT-KA Best Behavior Dog Training Member, Board of Directors, CCPDT APDT #062323 AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator #13985 Vero Beach, FL 772-978-7863 www.bestbehaviordogtraining.org
