The Dangers of Sleeping With Dogs

Is it dangerous for dogs to sleep with us? Every now and again this debate rears its canine head, and we’ve seen it floating around our blogosphere travels lately. So let’s open up the great dog sleeping with human debate, shall we? The danger of sleeping with dogs in our household are but one: That we wake up chilly at 3 am because Dexter has all the covers.

Let sleeping dogs lie, so the saying goes, as many dog moms and dads attest that the best night’s sleep is produced when a dog is lying by their side, pillow to pillow, tail to tush, snout to sheet. According to a survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, almost half of dogs sleep with their owners in their owner’s beds.

Dogs are creatures of habit, so if a dog enjoys roaming into his kennel at night, why not allow him the comfort and “den-like” ritual of hunkering down into his favorite nighttime spot. Many of us, self included, prefer the soothing rhythms of a dog slumbering by our side, nestled in for a good night’s sleep.  For the first two years of his life, my dog, Dexter, used my pillow for his own. This, for me, is quite the norm and many a pet parent would nod in agreement.

Dangers of Sleeping with Dogs

Adversely, there is a school of thought, and recently some more scientifically proven studies, revealing that sleeping with a dog might not be good for our health. From the “why’d you put a pin in my balloon” side of things, pet dander may instigate or trigger human allergies. Further, what Fido walks on outside is what Fido brings into the house and onto the bed linens.  Diseases that can be transmitted between pets and people, aka “zoonotic,” do exist, but this is in the bedroom as well as any other room in the house.

Dogs who shift during sleep can cause disruptions in human sleep, making it harder to ensure a solid night’s rest. The risk of rolling on Rover or the dog falling off the bed is also of consideration from the “no don’t do it” school of thought.  From the pages of “dominance and pack structure” behaviorists, there is a widely-held belief that the leader of the pack should be the only one allowed on the bed to maintain order, structure, and hierarchy.

Phooey I say. If you enjoy having a dog (or more) sleep with you and his or her presence does not compromise one’s health, pile on the pooches.

A friend of Fidose, Terry Casillas of Gulfport, Mississippi, says that she has been sleeping with dogs almost her whole adult life. As the founder of Tired Dog Rescue, she loves the comforting feeling of have a pack of dogs sleeping on her bed. At any given time, at least seven dogs can be found slumbering next to her.

If our recent sleeping dog photo contest is any indication, our pets are sharing their beds, homes, hearts, and everything else with us.

The emotional effects of having a dog in our lives are immeasurable, as study after study reveals.  In fact, the Center for Disease Control reports that pets can help to lower our blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and diminish feelings of loneliness. After a long day, many of us find solace in retreating to our beds and having our pooches snuggle next to us.

So Should You Sleep with Dogs? Here Are the Realities:

Allergies or Asthma/Dog Allergy

I had an allergist tell me many years ago that I am allergic to dogs based on allergy skin testing. He told me to literally “get rid of my dog.” Um, I have a tattoo that says “My Heart Beats Dog” and I trademarked that saying. I wonder how many people he tells to nix the pet. Makes my skin crawl and blood boil. If your life is at risk due to an allergy, perhaps the dog getting a new loving home is best in some cases…not for everyone and certainly not for me. I would sooner live in a HEPA filter than not share my life with a dog.

That said, if your allergies are severe or you have asthma that is induced by pet saliva or dander, then by all means have the dog sleep in another room. Invest in a high quality HEPA Allergen Remover that removes dust, hair, and germs from the air. I have one in the office and it is fantastic. We just change the filters twice a year and keep it clean. It also helps my dog’s allergies, too.

Snoring or Bed Hog

My dog is a Cocker but loves to sleep like this, and sometimes he likes to sleep on his own dog bed. He mostly uses that when we are watching television or when he wants to bury his doggie bone.

Sleeping dogs

He is  bed hog and has the cutest snore.

“Why do you tell me to stop when I snore but you think it’s cute when the dog does it?” This is a common question from my spouse.

Well, the dog snores are peaceful to me. BOL What can I say?

I’ve had readers over the years tell me that their dog steals the covers and keeps them awake at night. If you have such insomnia that your dog might be an extra factor in preventing a solid night’s sleep, then I guess you should consider having the dog sleep elsewhere on the world’s most posh dog bed.

Sex Life

Bottom line, if the dog interferes with your love life, then temporarily you can consider having the dog in another room. Some folks don’t like the dog “watching.” If we are being totally honest, I knew someone who had a dog that would pee whenever she had sex in the bedroom. I would joke that she must have gotten lucky when I saw the carpet cleaner at her house.

Aggressive Dogs

If a dog becomes territorial towards you or the bed, then this might not be the best situation for all parties. I read an article where a child was running towards the bed when a dog was on it. The dog snarled and lunged at the child. He was normally a loving pooch, but the bed became his “domain.” To the dog, this is a normal behavior but it cannot happen.

Famed dog trainer and behaviorist, Victoria Stilwell advises that making “off the bed” a game and using pets and treats as rewards for being on the floor/their own bed is key here. The dog gets no attention on the bed, only the floor. Never scold the dog. If the dog jumps back up, simply instruct them “off” and make it positive when they do. Never yell or scold or hit a dog.

Danger of Crushing Your Dog

If you have a tiny dog or one that likes to burrow under things, then he or she can be in danger in your bed. People can roll on a pet or a child with harmful or deadly consequences. In this case, I’d advise reconsidering allowing the dog on the bed.

And if it isn’t clear by now, this long-time dog mom, dog lover of the highest order, and writer/blogger is pro dog in the bed.

You will find a ton of articles about why dogs should not sleep with you due to alpha status, etc. Bleach and phooey. Do what works for you and is safe for all parties involved. I can tell you that when a dog dies, that empty spot on the bed is larger than life. You’ll look back someday and wish that dog was there to fill it.

  1. Rebekah says

    I am not opposed to dogs sleeping with people, but none of mine sleep with me. It is their choice. They are all very hot natured, and overheat after only a few minutes of cuddling.

    • Joe Pons says

      Yes i do let my dog sleep with me and will not let her sleep anywhere but with me she a beagle love her

  2. Linda Szymoniak says

    I have five Treeing Walker Coonhounds. My senior girl sleeps on an orthopedic bed in my daughter’s room, but the other four sleep on my bed. When I’m out of town and don’t have my dogs sleeping with me, I have the hardest time sleeping. In my case, I don’t even have to keep a blanket on my bed, most nights. I just use a sheet. I have a living, breathing, furry blanket of dogs. They all sleep pushed up against me, so they keep me nice and warm in winter and make me need to have a fan blowing over the bed in the heat of summer. I can’t even imagine NOT having my pups sharing my bed (although I wish I had a queen sized at times).

  3. Katherine says

    My Bostons sleep with me. One starts the night on top of my legs, head on my feet. He wanders elsewhere on the bed throughout the night and returns to his original spot shortly before the alarm goes off. The other starts and stays tucked up under one arm. If I’m on my side, he curls up and pushes himself as close as he can to me. He likes to be spooned. I miss them when I travel for work. No matter the temperature in the room or how many blankets I pile on, I can never get warm or settled enough. I always sleep well with my boys’ soft snores as night music.

  4. Larrielle says

    Since Bentley was a pup he’s been sleeping in bed with me. I never thought otherwise for him not too. It’s actually the moments when he jumps off the bed to sleep in other parts of the house that makes me wonder “why doesn’t he want to sleep with me?”. It’s a comforting feeling knowing that I have the love of my life by my side.

  5. Christina Berry says

    I will be the first to admit that I don’t sleep well with Nike. She’s big and restless and most of the time she crowds me right out of the bed. But on the other hand, when she isn’t in bed with me, I can’t sleep because she’s not there. Lol. There’s no making me happy. 🙂

  6. Woof Woof Mama says

    Daisy sleeps in our bed just about every night. It’s a king size bed but she usually hogs atleast half of it, so we do keep a dog bed in the room so we can send her there if we get too hot or need some alone time LOL!

  7. Andrea Lee Roundfield says

    Our middle pup little boy always sleeps with us, cuddling with whomever my need it most. The eldest and youngest girl pups sleep wherever the want, but most often end up with us. Our sleep patternsd an allergies are ok

  8. Dolly the Doxie says

    We admitted how I started sleeping with the Lady for a blog post. Sleeping with one dog is a lot less dangerous than sleeping with 3 cats. Trust us on this. Love Dolly

  9. Christine Hoy says

    I was diagnosed with severe allergies 7 years ago, and pets are high on my list of causes. I’ve had pets all my life and even worked at a Veterinary Hospital for almost 20 years. It’s quite upsetting to now be allergic to my favorite thing in the whole world. But, I had an anaphylactic reaction and it scared the heck out of me. My allergist suggested allergy shots and cutting down my antigen load, I told him from day one that the pets weren’t going anywhere, so we agreed they weren’t allowed in the bedroom. We also have large dogs and I’m not sure that I’d be able to sleep with them in the bed with us. He also suggested that no clothing/shoes worn outside should come into the bedroom. This helps keep the antigens down in the room where I sleep. So the dogs don’t sleep on the bed, and the cats aren’t supposed to either. But when we lost our cat a year ago, his brother (not littermates, but they grew up together from the age of 8 months) was so heartbroken that he walked around the house howling for 3 months. He’s now been diagnosed with kidney failure, so you can bet he’s sleeping in bed with us for however long he has. Are my allergies flaring up? – Yes. is it worth it? Yes! I think if a person has well behaved dogs, they don’t have allergies to those dogs, the dogs are young enough not to hurt themselves getting up & down off the bed, and their sleep patterns aren’t disrupted by the pets – let the dogs sleep with them. To each his own.

    • Carol Bryant says

      You know what is interesting? I had an allergist tell me I was allergic to dogs and I should “get rid of them.” I um, got rid of the allergist, on the right meds and now I cuddle with a Cocker to the max. Rock on, Christine.

  10. M. K. Clinton says

    Bentley sleeps on his bed next to ours and Pierre sleeps in his kennel. Bentley is not allowed on the bed because I’m afraid he would fall and it is too high for him to get up and down on his own. Since Bassets are prone to spinal injuries, I don’t let him up there. He only recently became allowed on the couch. I’m a bit overprotective. Pierre would sleep in our bed but that wouldn’t be fair. We used to sleep with two huge German Shepherds every night, so I’m not opposed to the idea! I actually miss it.

    • Victoria Ricciuti says

      I have a little maltese and when I got her at 8 weeks the vet told me to be careful with her jumping because their little bones are like chicken bones and break very easily. I looked on Amazon for foam steps that come up to the top of my bed which is very high. She is free to run up and down them whenever she wants. They aren’t very expensive. I bought the one with 5 steps and it comes with a washable cover. I tried the cage the first night I brought her home. I put her in the cage on a soft pad I put in and shut the light off. She whimpered for a few minutes and I immediately picked her up and put her in bed with me and my husband and 7 yrs. later she is on our bed and we love it. She snores a little too…….

  11. Sand Spring Chesapeakes says

    Oh yes all the animals are on the bed. It used to be 4 big chesapeakes but now that norman passed it is now 3 chessies with a cat that took Normans place. Not much room for us but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  12. Emma says

    Bailie sleeps in bed with Mom, I sleep in my own bed next to Mom’s bed, and Katie prefers to sleep downstairs. Mom says sleeping with Bailie is so easy, but it is the cats that wake her up all night and early in the morning, not the dog.

  13. Amelia Hughes says

    Awwww! Tater (being our only dog kid) does not sleep in our bed…and Wubbikins has staked her claim as the bed sleeper…he really likes to sleep the day and night away in the special bed we had custom made that looks out over the window to the street…because you never know if that UPS man is coming at 2am! LOL!

  14. Playful Kitty says

    Adorable photos! I agree with you – having a pet in bed with you is worth the risk. There are risks involved with everything if you think about it. If you drink too much water, you could drown. We still think of drinking water as a good thing. If my kitties want to cuddle me in bed, I’m going to allow it 🙂

  15. slimdoggy says

    Sally and Tino both slept in bed with us – well Tino about 50% of the time. Becca, Jack and Maggie have never attempted to, so they just don’t. Haven’t invited them up either…Jack’s too big of a lunk.

  16. Sharon S. says

    It’s wonderful to have your cat or dog snuggle up with you at night. I’m glad to know it’s good for my health too. About half of the pictures of my pets has them lounging in my bed.

  17. BoingyDog says

    Great post! I actually think the biggest danger is building anxiety in a dog, or a dog beginning to look at their owner as a resource that they must protect. Some dogs are more prone to anxiety or guarding but there’s potential in every dog. I only allow Kayo to come up on the couch from time to time when I invite her. She’s otherwise nestled in her own bed right next to mine. Just about daily I’ll go hang with her on her bed and give her a nice long massage, especially after our major exercise for the day. But she’s a working dog and prone to anxiety so sleeping with me daily would make her very unhappy in the long run.

  18. Nancy Height says

    Max sleeps with us every night. We have a king size bed but He has to sleep right up next to me. By morning I have been pushed all the way to the edge of the bed. Patches will come on the bed but only stays for a short time then jumps down and curls up in his bed that is right by my side of the bed. Maggie also prefers to sleep in her bed by my bed.

  19. Mary Z says

    I just got a new bed after about 100 years and could have been happy with a full but no, got to have room for the kitties to stretch out on! (if I had doggies, it would be the same) I don’t know what I would do if I had no warm, affectionate little body(ies) to feel leaning up against me. I actually think it’s some sort of primal human thing going back to when the tribe (including furry ones) slept in a “dog pile” (cats sort of pile, too) to keep cozy and feel safe.

  20. Carla Fontaine says

    I had 3 Gordon setters. Jake always slept right next to me with his head on my pillow. Dusty ended up at the foot of the bed! Lucy had bad hips that would still jump up! I lost my dogs in a divorce.. and miss sleeping with them every night. I still have my cat but it’s not quite the same

  21. Jodi says

    Oh yes. Both my dogs sleep in the bed with us and that is their choice. They are free to roam wherever they please at night (except right now Sampson is recovering from surgery so he’s limited.) I don’t sleep well if my puppy isn’t snuggled against me. :0

  22. Karen Goodman says

    My dog Milo has slept with me from the first night I brought him home. It’s just me and him, so he gets the other pillow. We have our little routine…it’s actually funny how similar his sleeping preference it so my own preference when sleeping with someone. We both think cuddling is fine for a few minutes, but then he gets up, turns him self around and faces way from me and lays back down with a bit of space between us. He’s doing exactly the same thing I’ve done with every guy who has shared my bed.

    Every foster dog (other than the 2 baby puppies who where my first fosters), join us in bed too. Every dog has different preferences. One wanted to crawl under the covers and sleep by my feet. Another would start in the bed but jump down and sleep on the floor after a few minutes. Luckily, being a dog owner means I won’t ever have to sleep alone again.

  23. Felissa says

    We’ve never had a dog in our home that hasnt slept in the bed with us. At this point in time we have 3 in bed at once and twice that many cats LOL!

  24. Karen says

    Milo slept in his crate during the puppy and adolescent days. Now that he is a mature adult, he gets more privileges. I love having him snuggle with me. He sleeps with me every night, now, except for the nights when my son scoops Milo up and carries him off to sleep with him!

  25. A Spaniel's Tail says

    I think there should be an article for dogs – “The dangers of sleeping with Hoomans”. 🙂


  26. Jackie Allum says

    We have 6 dogs in our house. 2 sleep on the bed with us, 2 sleep in their own beds in our bedroom and 2 hate being upstairs so sleep in their own crates in the living room. When my Mum lived with us she used to have them all on her bed apart from our little fur boy (who we recently lost – RIP Biscuit) who used to sleep with us while we watched TV in bed, then when the light went out would make his own way to his dog bed with his duvet in tow. After she moved out we gave them a week to find their own feet and where they wanted to sleep at night. We listened to them and how they felt. Works well for us.

    Pea (our little Cocker puppy) started out sleeping on my head at night and have moved down the bed, cuddling round the back of his dad’s legs now so he’s found his place. The eldest (15 years old Shelby) sleeps under a blanket right at the bottom. Neither interfere with our sleep so we’re happy, plus we do get the odd puppy lick on the nose to wake us up sometimes which is super cute. But I think that you should just let them find their own places, it makes them happy and in turn makes it less stressful for us.

  27. Misty says

    My doggie loves to sleep in my bed, but unfortunately I am not very good company for her. Lol. She will usually start out in the bed. Then when I start tossing and turning she jumps down and sleeps on her favorite pillow on the floor. Sometimes she will climb back into bed after ive fallen asleep again, sometimes not. But if I ever go to the bathroom she always jumps into the bed and takes over my blanket and pillow.

  28. Jonathan says

    Love my two dogs they sleep with us every night and even though they make it more difficult for us to cuddle I wouldn’t want them anywhere else although it seems since we moved in together they both betrayed their original parents my boy cuddles her all night and her girl tends to get a bit too possessive over me, lol nowadays we playfully fight our way through our little dogpile to eachother.

  29. Miyah says

    My 4yo Yorkie likes to sleep on the bed or couch. He is always laying at the foot of the bed or by my legs. The only time he doesn’t sleep with me is if I’m bothering him (he looks so adorable when he sleeps so I just HAVE to pet him). If he’s not laying on the bed he’s laying on the covers that hang off of the bed. He is just the cutest 😊

  30. Smitti says

    My chiweenie pup Liam is about the size of a kitten and he’s always been a huge cuddler/burrower. He head to bed at the same time every night . He comes prodding at the covers until I lift the blanket and then curls into a ball against my stomach. It’s very soothing and he has never interrupted my sleep. I love it

  31. Cindy says

    😲😲😲😲😲😲 WHAT!?!? You mean there’s home’s in the U.S.A. THAT DOG’S DON’T SLEEP WITH THEIR DOG PARENT’S!!!??!?

    WOW!!!! I have a poodle that is almost 10 years old I got her a puppy and she has ALWAYS slept with me. I couldn’t imagine being her dog parent any other way.


  32. Anonymous says

    We’ve had our little guy since he was a puppy. As a pup, he always slept in his crate. These days he’s free to roam at night. Currently he’s curled up in bed with me, at bedtime for my daughters he stayed with the eldest until she fell asleep, then cuddled the toddler until she was out, then alternately cuddled my husband and I in the living room until we decided to go to bed. He’ll eventually make his way to the couch, his own bed, and back in with one of the girls throughout the night. He seems to be very restless at night, possibly a light sleeper. Maybe he’s speeding his love evenly, or he’s just too much of a lazy bum during the day!

  33. Manda says

    My partner and I have a dachshund his name is Rudy, he’s 21 years old!!! He can’t see but loves his Barkbox! He unfortunately cannot sleep with us anymore. He can’t see to get up our steps to the bed, but he’s happily snuggled in his bed by our bed. Now we do have a dachshund/ jack russell Pepper Ann, and Mollie who we don’t really know what she is lol. They sleep with us nightly and learned fast how to use the steps. I lost my dachshund Henry last year, he jumped off our bed and broke his back 😞😞 so I bought steps for the others …. Hard lesson to learn.

  34. Irene says

    my boyfriend and I have two toy poodles. One is a few years younger than the other and he is always in our bed. Every night he chooses to cuddle with my boyfriend or me (if I’m lucky😉) The other, is about 10 years old now. He sometimes will come up on the bed if we call him but he doesn’t stay for long. He has a bed under ours where he spends most of his time and sleeps. The weird thing is though, when my boyfriend is away, he’s up on the bed most of the day and the whole night with me and the other pooch. I can’t figure out why he does this. I don’t mind it. Lucky me, right? 😊

  35. Rachel says

    our 99lb GSD loves to sleep on top of me but leaves all room for my husband! Thank god she only sleeps on the bed for a few hours and then gets down and goes on her own bed. During the day she comes upstairs and sleeps in the middle of the bed but is never aggressive about getting down or it being her bed. I can just come in and take a nap with her and she could care less. I say do what you feel is comfortable for both you and your furry love. That is what we do when it comes to our children right? My furry love is my child and I treat her that way.

  36. Jessica Myers says

    I have a Weiner jack I’ve had her for 6 yrs she is literally my other half my best friend I take her everywhere I can and if I can’t I don’t stay gone long and she loves me the same she has always slept with me she fills my loneliness I don’t know what I’d do without her but I feel it’s perfectly fine to sleep with our dogs if that’s what they want

  37. Donna Hudson says

    I am not a dog lover. I am an animal lover don’t get me wrong. I started dating my now husband 6 years ago. He has a black lab. She was 7 at the time. He also has a golendoodle ( golden retriever/ poodle) that’s 3 months at the time. We moved very quickly, fell in love and I moved in. I travel a lot for my work. Well there two Alpha females shred, salivate and roll all around ONLY on MY side of the bed. They tear the sheets when it’s time for their nails to be groomed pee, and poop and hair is everywhere!! Again only on mom’s side of the bed. They are now 11 and 5 and it still hasn’t stopped. Do you guys think my hubby sleeps with them when mom’s away on business? He swears he would never ever do this.., any suggestions? I’m sorry, I’m not sharing my bed with my new husband with dogs. Nope!

    • Carol Bryant says

      Okay so for suggestions, are you asking what you can do to keep the dogs off the bed or???? Let me know and I can help!

  38. Rich says

    I have a huge crate for my boxer/black mouth cur mix. When I go to bed she either follows me up to my bed or she’ll stay on the couch most of the night and show up in my bed early in the morning. If I’m upstairs in my office at night and go to bed I’ll sometimes find my doggah already comfortable in the middle of all my pillows.

  39. Barbara Mayes says

    I got a mini dachshund a year ago and he has slept with me ever since. I can’t imagine him not being by my side every night. I change the sheets every week because of all the dog hair, but I do so with a smile on my face.

  40. Sharon Gilbert says

    Schooner & Skipper sleep with us every night. Our dogs before Schooner & Skipper slept in bed with us, They keep me warm in the winter. Skipper love to sleep under the cover. Schooner like to sleep in-between us with his head on a pillow and covered up. I love sleeping with my husband and dogs!

  41. Janice says

    I am one of those unlucky that is allergic to cat and certain dog fur/hair. However even though I suffer from dog danger and dust the dogs bring in extra, I just wash my sheeting and blankets more often and sweep our floors more often and cough with the mood hits me. My pets I have (not limited to most dogs) are standard, long haired, red and white dachshunds. My girl dachshund, Ginger, loves to sleep on my pillow, up as far as she can. My male dachshund, Poppy, loves to sleep at your feet under all the covers but with an escape hole ready to take off with the slightest noise. The also have kennels in the house to get away from the noise and household with they are tired.
    I think my biggest and best idea came from when they were puppies and wanted me all the time; I put them in the kennels (separate) and covered them like you do a bird. They slept a lot better until too big for their cages. They are each 16-18 lbs. Not what I call little.

  42. Sam says

    My boxer jumps in the bed toward the morning hours. I also have a Boston that loves to sleep wedge between my legs and a yorkie that will be right up by my face. They go to their crates at night. They sleep with me often but they tend to go from sprawling all over the bed to being wedge where I can move. The are my babies so bed, couch, chair nothing is off limits, they know know who the pack leader is, I bark and bite ( just kidding) the hands that feed them all those good treats. Oh and I am a transplant patient so wipe their paws and no worries, we live in a world full of germs, fur babies are no greater risk that the shopping cart in the grocery store or the door handle in the public restroom. Same principles!

  43. Charles H says

    I have two dogs, both kinda on the small side. One of them, Honey, is a rat terrier and the other, Chico, is her son with a jack russell. Honey is fairly sedate while Chico is’insecure’ is the best I can put it. I have no problem with Honey being in bed with me, but Chico has a problem with getting over-excited whenever he is allowed in bed and has to wear a wrap to keep my bed dry. He does a lot better now whenever he’s on our laps or on the couch, but still has a problem with the bed. I feel bad letting Honey up onto the bed when I have to tell Chico no, but even when he does have the wrap on he’s a big wiggle-worm so I have no chance to sleep with him. He can stay up while I’m watching TV or playing video games, but that’s the best I can do for him. Sad…

  44. Linda says

    I got my first dog, a Dachshund mix, after my husband passed away. She burrows under the covers with me every night and my cat snuggles with me on the other side. It’s comforting and makes me smile. The only drawback is having to get the dog hair off the sheets every morning!

  45. Cindy says

    My dog sleeps with me every night would not have it any other way. She is half chuwawa and half rat terrier a little dog. I have never rolled on her thank God. I know she is there. Love of my life.
