What's up with that? I just read in a book that under NO circumstances can a Great Dane sleep with a human! What is up with that? Somebody help. I don't understand and the book didn't tell. I've always let my animals sleep in our bed. They feel more comfortable and secure. I don't know what to think anymore.
What book was that? The best information your gonna get is from long time Dane owners like on the sites I gave you. You cannot believe everything you read. The only reason I did not always let my danes sleep with me is that there was not enough room for me and 4 other danes in my bed. Lol. And it was just to hard to choose one and make them take turns. So they all got comfy dog beds and either slept there or on the couch. Steph
Maybe they just say that because great danes are prone to dominant behavior anyway. I don't know if that is true, I know nothing about them, really. But I have read over and over again that the worst thing you can do is have your dog sleep with you. Many trainers say "whatever you do, don't do it!!!"
My dog sleeps with me, though. I guess I just can't be taught!!!!!
Sure the dane can sleep with you, up until it pushes your butt off onto the floor! I was thinking of possible crushing issues myself, small human, large dog across its chest, and danes often snore and drool. Have to change the sheets a lot I'd think
Well, that is one cutie pie. You could always buy bunk beds and let him sleep in the bottom bunk, that way he wouldn't roll off and smush you. Sleeping on the top bunk maybe he woud think you are alpha.
first off i love your puppy he is beautiful. second my silky terrier always sleeps with me. even though she only weighs 10 pounds she always tries to take up the whole bed. she tries to sleep right in the middle of the bed.
I believe that the sleeping on the bed thing is a training issue and not strictly related to Danes. I have heard that allowing a dog to sleep in your bed puts them on the same level as you so to speak. Dominance,pack leader theory. My Great Dane loves to be on the bed- but boy is he a bed hog!!!
