Stopping Duke from Sleeping Our Bed?
Our wonderful rescue boy Duke is a very sweet, affectionate, fun doggie. When he first came to us as a foster he would sleep all night on his dog bed on the floor next to our bed. Connor would spend some time on our bed, but ultimately get down and sleep on his own dog bed. Somehow over time Duke now wants to only sleep on our bed and no matter how many times I put him back on the floor he jumps right back up on our bed - which is no small fete considering he's a tripawd.
I love cuddling with Duke, but most nights it gets to be a bit too crowded for comfortable sleep. What can we do to re-train Duke to sleep on his own bed? I would love some ideas.
