Our dog isn't allowed upstairs and definitely not on our bed. Despite regular washing she smells a bit and sheds fur.
Kitty used to sleep on our bed but since having DD I lock her out of the bedroom as I'm worried she might suffocate Bub. The cat probably sheds more fur than the dog but somehow it doesn't seem as dirty to me. Completely irrational I know.

I can't even get into bed without having a shower, I hate the idea of sleeping in my own sweat and whatever gunk I've picked up through the day, so seeping in dog gunk makes me want to vomit! Plus I hate the smell of dog houses. My pups have their own very comfortable beds outside.

Ok so I'm definitely in the minority here.
Out r Jack Russell sleeps wherever she wants. In the kids beds, in our bed, wherever. Even our goldie will sneak into our bed if DH goes into one of the kids rooms.
Our kids have amazing immune systems. I like to tell myself it's co-sleeping with pets that contributes to that.
My kids bring more crap into my bed then my dogs ever could.

My dog always slept on his bed which was next to my bedside table, if he got hot in the night he'd sleep in the hallway but always close. He passed away last month 😢 I lived on my own for 5 years and he always made me feel safe sleeping in my room.
The 2 cats sleep on the bed and I hate it. They are big heavy lumps and when they're cold snuggle right up and I can't move, as I have a long term bad back I then wake up stiff and sore because they've pinned me down and I can't move properly. Generally I kick them off for that reason so they sleep on DH instead. Drives me nuts when he's away as they constantly try to sleep on me! Thank god we have a king size bed.

The dog sleeps outside.
The cat sleeps wherever the hell she wants. She will occasionally sleep curled up with DP (because she's trying to steal him from me) but usually out in the lounge room or hidden in some dark corner. Pretty sure she is secretly plotting our deaths.

Each dog sleeps on the kids bed 🙈 now we are renting they have been banished to outside and kids have been anxiety about it.
Our dogs are family!!! Why wouldn't they?!
You know you can get perfume for dogs 😁

So, I've already said our cat sleeps on our bed. It doesn't bother me too much, except when she lies too close to my legs and feet (big lump!). She's an indoor cat and finniky about cleanliness, even for a cat.
A dog... Even though I like dogs, I won't get one because I can't stand the dog smell and definitely wouldn't want it inside. But I'd feel guilty leaving it outside in the heat and cold. There is no way I'd let a dog in or on my bed. Usually they're bigger than cats (it's squishy enough in my queen bed with just DH - bed hog!), and the smell... just nope.

My Border Collie Gypsy sleeps in my room, she has her own bed by mine, but sometimes prefers the wooden floor. Sometimes she sleeps on my bed but is a bit of a bed hog, and I'm a fidgety person, and sleep in the middle of a queen size bed, so sometimes there's not enough room.
I like sharing my room with Gypsy as I'm a single mum she makes me feel extra safe at night.
Kipper my cat sleeps where he wants, usually in with my son on the spare bunk bed or on the top bunk with my son, Kipper used to sleep on my bed before the dog came along.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1456570929.562876.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1456571020.507209.jpg

No way! I am a huge animal lover, our pets sleep inside...but pets on furniture is so gross to me. It's not allowed here (and our house doesn't smell of dog...dog and dog bed gets washed weekly and we have no carpet, plus no pets on furniture), there's nothing to get 'smelly,' except the dog bed...so once the smell of dog doesn't wash out it gets replaced).

Nope. My dog used to be an outside dog. But last year or so she sleeps on a mat inside. only on the bed when she's been washed! Lol. And never for sleep.
I don't like it.
