The French Bulldog puppy in this video wants his bed back. His name is Pixel. At this filming he is only 10 weeks old. But what strength he has already! When the family won’t listen to him when he wants his bed back, Pixel used all his 10-weeks-old might to pull the doggie bed (with the cat inside) hoping this will prompt the cat to get out of his bed.
Should you share your bed with your dog?
It is wonderful that today there are such comfy beds for dogs that they are unwilling to share them. And even though some dogs have their own doggie beds, they never use them because they prefer to sleep in their owners’ bed. Laura Hedden in Vetz Insight wrote about the topic of whether to share your bed with your pet. She suggests that you make a decision first, then carries out that decision starting Day 1. Retraining a habit can take a lot more effort, if it’s even successful.
If you have not yet brought home a dog or a cat, Laura’s advice is to not allow your pet in bed. She shares several reasons. One has to do with possible allergies. Just like humans, our pets shed skin cells everyday. You can be sleeping on the very particles that cause your allergy. Another reason is some dogs snore, and they change position while they sleep, just like us. If you are a light sleeper, the snoring and their tossing and turning can disrupt you from having a restful sleep.
Some really snuggly dogs like to fling their body across you when they sleep. If it’s a large dog, you can’t really move or change position. That can cause you discomfort in your sleep. Again, not the most restful sleep. And you have to deal with this night after night. If your dog is accustomed to sleeping in your bed, and then you change your mind, you are going to have a lot of convincing to do. You can read more about this topic here. Enjoy watching Pixel trying to reclaim his bed.
