Research has shown that slightly less than one-half of all pet owners share their bed or bedroom with their pet.

Even so, you have likely been told by at least one well-meaning person that your dog should sleep on the floor, in his crate, or in his own bed.

The study found that canine pets sleeping in bed with their owners was not harmful- humans and dogs sleep well together and neither causes significant disruption to the other's sleep patterns. Both dogs and their owners maintained a high sleep efficiency when sleeping in the same room, although humans tended to sleep slightly worse when their dogs were on the bed.

The puppy does not have to sleep on your bed, but we want our dogs to learn to be part of our family. Your dog will be more comfortable, and you will have a better relationship with your dog if your dog is included and sleeps nearby.

However, I'd like to suggest a compromise in the interest of marital harmony: Have your pup sleep in a crate in your bedroom at night. He’ll be comfortable, close and confined in a way your wife may find more acceptable. And chances are good that as your new puppy becomes bonded to you and your wife, he’ll end up on the bed in the end anyway.

Some dogs may choose to sleep in another room entirely, even if you keep your bedroom door open. Others may stay as close to you as possible. Usually due to temperature changes, some dogs will choose to lie on the cold floor of the bathroom or by the entrance. Dogs allowed on the furniture may gravitate to the couch at night.

One way to encourage your dog to sleep in your bed is to let them sleep in your room if they aren't already. Over time, lure them onto the bed with a tasty treat or two. The key is to create a positive association with the bed. You can also do this by feeding them a meal next to your bed or placing some of their favorite toys on top.

Many essential oils, such as eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil, cinnamon, citrus, peppermint, pine, wintergreen, and ylang ylang are straight up toxic to pets. These are toxic whether they are applied to the skin, used in diffusers or licked up in the case of a spill.
Rawhide bones and other edible chews can pose a choking and blockage risk. In fact, this is a much bigger risk than contamination or digestive irritation. If your dog swallows large pieces of rawhide, the rawhide can get stuck in the esophagus or other parts of the digestive tract.
Cat food tends to be high in fat, calories and protein which means it's not ideal for dogs. Dogs with sensitive stomachs may suffer gastrointestinal upset, sickness and diarrhoea after eating cat food.

Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.

Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.

Why Aren't Pork Bones Safe for Dogs? Pork bones, whether raw or cooked, are likely to splinter and crack when your dog chews on them. Your dog might attempt to swallow small pieces of the pork bone, which could lead to choking, intestinal blockages, or damage to the esophagus or intestines.
