Default Who lets their BIG dogs sleep on the bed?

I "let" Mitsu sleep on my bed last night. She woke up in the early, early, early morning crying. I though she might have to go to the washroom so I took her outside, she went and I put her back in her kennel.

Again, she started crying, which is not normal for her. So I thought she might be hungry, gave her some food and while she was eating I went to the bathroom.

After I went into my room to check on Teagan, and guess who was lying on my bed? Yup, Mitsu.

Although, I have to give her the benefit of the doubt. I think her toe was causing her alot of discomfort and she could not get comfortable. Dogs seem to want to be with their owners when in pain. It took her like 10 minutes to actually stop crying and settle down on my bed, then she was out for the rest of the night.

But I am NOT making this a habit, Im debating wether or not I should put her kennel in my room when we move in the new house. Or let her sleep on the bed once in a while or even train her to sleep on a dog bed at the foot of the bed or somthing ha ha.

So what do you do people of large dogs?

I have Hannah (70 pounds), Kaylee (80 pounds) and Traveler (38 pounds) in bed with me at night The only rule I have and really enforce is they are not allowed to get off the bed or I will beat them

Shamoo, 40 lbs sleeps with me. That is it. Arnold used to sleep with me but he likes to sleep on me and I like my space.

My dogs aren't even allowed in my bedroom (it's our "clean" room, Eric has allergies) unless I'm weighing them on our scale. So nope, no dogs in my bed!

Finn (42lbs) has shared the bed before when Matt's away for the night. But... he usually winds up retreating to his cozy bedroom crate.

Rumor doesn't sleep with me. I don't usually even like her sleeping in my bedroom at all. She kicks and tosses and turns and grumbles too much when she's on the bed. When she sleeps on the floor, she gets up and lets herself in and out of the bedroom way too often. If she would just lay there and sleep I wouldn't mind, but she's always up and moving.

Classic used to sleep with me but apparently the couch is more comfortable and less kicky now. Zuma is itty-bitty so she doesn't count, but yes she sleeps on the bed every night.
