Start by spending the first few months with your new dog sleeping in his crate, bed, or designated area.

This will teach him that at night, you go to your bed and he goes to his bed.

During the day, don't allow your dog to be on your bed, let alone sleep there.

The bed should be a human only zone – no dogs allowed.
