My dogs sleep in their crates at night time and are very happy. Most of the time around 10PM All I have to do is close the doors cause they are already in them sleeping. Any time I can't find them, they are usally happily in their crate chewing their treats. If they get in trouble they go to their crates without my telling them to.
My dogs love their crates! ITS THEIR BEDROOM.
Now if I leave and they are loose in house they nap on my bed! and when they hear me come in the house they act all innocent and come get me, leaving their fur in my bed! But hey they deserve a human bed sometimes to let them think they get away with it,I love them.
They sleep in their little beds next to ours. They would most diffently sleep with us if we would let them. Tina sleeps in on Saturdays with my husband. Mandy only sleeps with us when it thunders and storms, which she is so afraid of. Max sleeps in the recliner or on the couch and sometimes in his bed.
the dogs either sleep with us or my son. it is so cute when they sleep with him because he is completely surrounded by them and sometimes half his body or his legs are draped over them and they dont move a muscle.
the smallest one a small mixed breed sleeps in my bed usually on a pillow or she takes the blanket and curles up in it. and the other on a hound mix sleeps on the bed with me or on her bed is the corner.
