Guinness is on the bed everynight. He curls up on the pillow next to me.
Kenzie is still in her crate. I sort of like the idea of having room in the bed! I did try to let her sleep up on the bed once a week or so ago but she just wouldn't settle down. As soon as I kicked her off and put her in her crate she immediately settled and crashed. I think she thinks of the crate as her room.
I do let her up every morning for about 1/2 hour while I'm waking up.

She's not allowed in the bedroom and it works for us.

Chaya might come up for a cuddle at the beginning of the night if she's 're not too sleepy, then hop off after 30 minutes or so. Laika doesn't even bother....both of them love sleeping on our hardwood floor, winter or summer. Laika always comes up in the morning after DH leaves, and Chaya will sometimes join us if I sleep in.

We switched to a king size bed, got "pet stairs", give treats in bed - no amount of bribery can make our girls stay in bed all night with us

Summer slept on the bed with me every night since I got her. The first couple of weeks I kept a squeaky toy on the bed so when she woke up and played with it I knew it was time to take her out.

Now, Summer has only one rule. NEVER,NEVER, EVER get on her side of the bed or you will get a stink eye and 75 pounds of dog dropping down on top of you.

Our 3 sleep in their beds in the living room. 2 of them normally in the same bed together. We keep our bedroom door shut. We like it quiet and dark. Dogs move around so much at night. We do let them sleep with us when in a tent. But with lots of bears here, it's for everyone's safety.

Jacks has the pillow where he lounges around my head so his face can be right next to mine. Bertie has my feet area. <- Not a big bed, but plenty of room.
