Default How big a dog do you let sleep with you?

I have seen quite a few posts where people say that their dogs share their bed at night. I am wondering if these all mostly small dogs? Smokey is about 40 pounds, and I can't envision her rolling around on top of my bed at night while I do my usual tossing and turning during the evening.

I normally have medium sized dogs. But I'd let any size dog sleep with me.

Missy, my German Sheperd is welcome to sleep with me, and she often does. Actually when I wake up I often find that both her and Maddie are in the bed...
Missy's maybe around70lbs, and Maddie's about 25

Bailey CGC .:. Shetland Sheepdog .:. 6 y/o

My 20lb dog sleeps with me, my 75lb dog would sleep with me, but there's no room! She sleeps on the floor next to the bed on her blanket.

For me 20lbs would be the max. The bed already seems like a sandbox already when they put just their front paws on it... plus it's too small for two people already

All 70lbs of Boone makes his way onto the bed occasionally. Luckily he gets to hot and chooses his crate most nights.

I have no idea how much Bo weight, but she is small lab size.

I am a wriggler in bed, and she has found out where to sleep so she doesn't get knocked (right next to me!)..

I don't like dogs of any size to sleep in my bed. I an an extremely active sleeper, and I hate rolling over furry lumps in the night.

My great dane sleeps with me, and she weighs about 130-ish pounds. It's not the most comfortable thing in the world, but if I toss or turn to much, she'll get down and go sleep in her bed. Oh, and my 23 pound cat usually sleeps with me also. On my chest.
