    Our dog has a bed in our room, and usually sleeps there. Or on the couch in the lounge room. He'll sometimes nap on our bed, but not at night.

    He's a 13 kilo shiba inu.

    Also, our dog doesn't smell unless he's wet. What are these dogs doing to be so stinky???

    My little Maltese x didn't want to sleep with me, so he has a little bed on the floor. He has a tendency to wander at night inside so he gets closed in the bedroom. Our first cat was a nightmare in the bedroom so he got banished and so are our two cats now. They do sleep on our bed during the day and early morning after I let the dog out but I sleep much better without them sharing my bed. I also close the kids door as I don't want them annoying the kids overnight.

    I think some people are more sensitive to the smell.

    Its weird because I am ok with cats on bed - not sure about dogs though!

    We got our cavoodle before ds1 (#3) was born. I co-slept a lot with him, but funnily enough, its like my puppy knew, baby in the bed = no doggie allowed so she would sleep under the bed on those nights (she amazes me how she just 'knows' my rules without any prompting) also the cot was right next to my bed. My dog is always on top of the doona (never under or directly on the sheets we sleep on and only at our feet).

    Nope. But then I'm a 'pets stay outside' person. Too much shedding of hair and smelliness and the thought of dogs in bed grosses me out. No offence to others, each to their own. But I find in most cases people that say their animals don't smell are just used to the smell and they do. Cats are much cleaner and less smelly though

    Default Do you sleep with your dog/cat? why or why not?

    I have a lab X husky who sheds like CRAZY because he has a husky double coat, but lives in the tropics so is just constantly losing lots of hair, so he's strictly outside. It'd be a full time job cleaning up after him let alone my 2 toddlers. He also knocks the kids over all the time so it'd just be a disaster. If I had a little lap dog I'd probably let them inside.

    Yes. Our kids have been in our bed at various times as babies and older kids and the cat is a constant in the bed.
    He also started choosing to sleep in their beds with them at times once the sides of their cot came off.

    No, never. If l have the baby on the bed, it's just to feed her if I'm in bed. Cot is right next to me. I'm not a believer in co sleeping but that's my personal choice. Sleeping baby in cot, dog on her bed on the floor. DP and I like our space when sleeping lol.

    Sometimes the dog goes and sleeps on one of my older daughter's beds at night and if we are sitting on the lounge with bub, the dog is allowed to sit next to is holding her. I'm just funny about the dog being near or licking her face while she is tiny.
