Both of my boys sleep where ever they want. They both have crates, and will sometimes hang out in them during the day or at night.

Gonzo USUALLY sleeps in his crate or on his bed. Fozzie USUALLY opts for the big bed. C: Fozzie has had the freedom since he was about 6 months old, and he has yet to destroy anything or potty at night.

Bodhi doesn't have a crate.
"Dogs are our link to paradise. They do not know jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing wasn't boring, it was peace."

Bodhi is the opposite of ignorance, the insight into reality which destroys mental afflictions and brings peace.

Phoebe sleeps where ever she feels like it, downstairs, upstairs........whatever. She has never used a crate.

Orson sleeps in our room and always has. He's NEVER slept in his crate over night. I wish I could take credit and tell you how, but he just LOVES his sleep..........even as a 4 month old pup when he went to bed he SLEPT. Never roamed the house or even the bedroom, LOL

Meg sleeps in my bedroom with me, with the door closed (because I can't stand any light/noise, not because she can't be trusted). She almost always sleeps on the bed with me; once or twice she's gotten up during the night to sleep on the floor.

It's easiest for me to have the dog in bed with me. I'm a light enough sleeper that if they get up and jump off the bed, I'm awake instantly and can supervise.

Both dogs sleep in my room. Millie usually sleeps in her bed that's up against mine, and sometimes gets on the bed with me in the morning before I'm all the way up.
Lucy is alternated between her crate and my bed depending on her behavior. I love having her in bed with me. She doesn't care if I roll over on her or if she's in the weirdest twisted position. She's so funny.

My dogs sleep in their own bed.

Joey has slept with me in my bed since about a week after we got him. It only took a week to figure out that he could hold it through the night or that he would wake me up if he needed to go out which was pretty good for a pup not even 3 months old yet. Roxie gets to sleep in bed with us because she doesn't really do well in a crate, especially if Joey is out of his crate at the time.

Kharma is MUCH happier since I got rid of that horrible, firm mattress and got the latex one, lol! Even if there isn't quite as much room on a queen as there was a king. We have it worked out: she waits until I get in bed and claim the middle and she jumps up and usually sleeps on my left. Sometimes she curls up in a ball near the foot of the bed and sometimes she stretches out beside me with her head on the pillow. I've waked up to find her hanging over the head of the bed looking out the front window a few times, too.

Bimmer is always on duty. His choice is to sleep on some pillows on the floor at the foot of the bed, facing the door. If there's too much activity in the neighborhood, he'll go camp out on the living room couch where he can watch more effectively.

The only thing resembling a crate I've ever owned is a cat cage - bought when we moved from California - and then really only used to keep the cat's litter box in on the trip. Gulliver travelled most of the way laying across the back of the seat.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. ~Buddha

Stupid is the most notoriously incurable and contagious disease known to mankind. If you find yourself in close proximity to someone infected with stupid, walk away as soon as said infection is noted.

There are few things more nauseating than pure obedience. ~ Kvothe

Mine all have a choice, but always end up sleeping with me. 2 of mine I've had since they were pups, they slept in their crates (in my room) during house training. After they were house trained they were allowed to sleep on the bed with me. My 3rd is a rescue who took to sleeping in a warm, cozy bed almost immediately. Took her about 2 nights to realize that it was ok for her to crash with me.
