How many different places does your dog sleep in one night?
For those of you that do not crate your dogs at night:
My SO wanted me to ask this question. Do your dogs move around at night and sleep in different locations?
In a typical evening both dogs will stay with me. If I'm working in the office they are asleep under the computer table. If I am watching television they are in the family room with me either under or behind my chair.
When I go to bed Bob will go into the kitchen and settle down on the cool tile floor. Sometimes, in the middle of the night Jeff will find Bob sleeping in the master bedroom bathroom. And by the time Jeff wakes up in the morning Bob is in Jeff's bed, sleeping at the foot of the bed.
Natasha may stay in the kitchen with Bob for a few minutes or she will go into Jeff's bedroom and stretch out on 'her' side of the bed. At some point during the night she moves to the family room sofa. But by morning, she is always in Jeff's bed, usually sleeping at the head of the bed.
Because I have allergies, they never sleep in my bedroom or bed ... although in the morning they wait outside my bedroom for me to make an appearance.
SO.... in a normal night our dogs will sleep in at least 3 different locations throughout the house.

Mine pretty much stay in the room Im in until its bed time, then they go to the bedroom and stay there all night.

Mine alternate between the bed and the floor when they get too warm. Dillon tends to sleep in one spot all night on the bed... Sam is usually the one who goes back and forth.

Well, Emma usually starts with our bed, if she feels too hot she moves on the floor or near the bed where she has a bed set up for her, but she always sleeps nearby. Last night she left the bed to cool off a bit but she returned and brought the only ball with a bell inside she has. Needless to say I thought I had got rid of that ball the night before (same drill) but I kept hearing the bell each time one of us moved. So I knew she must be in bed, too.

Lucy alternates between the bed and the floor too. She prefers to sleep in the bed unless she's hot, but she doesn't like for either of us to move at all. Honestly, the bed's not big enough for two adults and a grown golden (we only have a full sized bed). However, we do get comfy and cozy at times.
Mine sleep in two places. They both start out on the wood floor next to my side of the bed.
Gunner stays there most of the night. I have to feel my way over him when I go to the bathroom. : )
Selka eventually goes in the den , right next to our room, and sleeps spread out , on the couch.
Sometimes, Gunner goes in the living room and sleeps on the couch. He barks at times when he sees a shadow or hears any noise outside. Then by morning he's back by my side of the bed.
When Dad leaves for work, they let me know it's time to EAT!
Kylee just sleeps on the floor in our bedroom on my wife's side of the bed. She may shuffle back and forth 4 or 5 feet but always on that side. Which I'm always suprised as she is very much a daddy's girl.
In winter they both sleep on the bed all night long. In warmer weather they both start in the bed then sleep on the floor til the alarms goes off then they jump back on the bed for belly rubs.
starts in her bed ends up on my feet. Then gets under the covers with me, then if I have company will sleep in between whoever is with me. Sometimes that's the end of it and you wake up with the dog in between you head on the pillow, but sometimes if she's unhappy moxie gets back up and goes to sleep with one of my roommates. where she does the same type of movements. She likes to get to everyone.

With three dogs I did not fill in the poll as all are different.
Keeper - she will move from her dog bed to the cool wod floor and back during the night.
Lucy - She stays in one place on the rug on my wife's side of the bed.
Oriana - There is NO spot in the room she does not use during the night. Our bed, Keeper's bed, Lucy's bed, wood floor, carpet and of course various spots in "our" bed.
