I am all for dogs in bed. My super dog, Lupo, slept between my legs, under the covers. I call them my "bowlegged years" because he was a Lab/Golden mix and not particularly petite. I never understood how he handled the heat and lack of oxygen but he did. When my Golden Fenris came along my wife believed in no dogs on the furniture, so, he never slept in bed. He was WAY too hot anyways; the few times we snuggled in bed he left pretty quick. Now we're up to Bagheera and I'm trying to sneak him back into being a dog with furniture privileges. He sneaks up on the couch once in a while and often nobody insists he get off.
It's all up to you and the dog. He may decide not to, even if allowed. Or he may be your bed partner for life.
