night time sleeping arrangements - 2 dogs
This is a question for down the road, as Wilson is only 14 weeks and is crated in our bedroom at night and when we go out. Our 9 year old Golden Ivy has a dog bed in our room as well, but recently has been opting to sleep downstairs as Wilson's early morning grousing (when he's "up" but not truly needing to come out of the crate) seems to bother her.
I'm wondering what bedtime setup other people with multiple dogs have (for those whose dogs don't sleep on the human bed)? I don't think Wilson will be in the crate long term, so we'd be looking at 2 dog beds in our bedroom. Does that work fine for most folk, or does one dog tend to bother another? During the day they sometimes nap together but there is a lot of moving about and repositioning, etc. Does that get to be a bit much at 3:00 am, or do they find a rhythm? Too many nighttime shenanigans will lead to grumpy humans in the am.
