Does Your Dachshund Sleep In Bed With You? We Show You The Pros And Cons Of Sleeping With Them

Before owning my first dog, I saw movies about dogs and all those amazing stuffs they did as owner and pet. For example: To have a dog sleeping in bed with me. However, at home dogs were not allowed in beds.

Now that I have grown, I have my house and my rules. In addition, I have four beautiful dogs.

In the last years, attitudes such as bed-sharing with dogs have changed. That is funny because most of my friends know that I prefer to sleep with my dogs rather than my boyfriend.

In spite of time has changed there are still some people that do not accept their dogs to sleep with them. On the other hand, there are many that spend every night with a dog.

How many people sleep with their dogs?

A survey that was done by AKC has shown that 45% of people sleep with their dogs. Moreover, a Harris Poll conducted in 2012 showed even a higher result. This is not new for humans, stone age men, used to sleep with their dogs in order to feel protected and warm their dogs when winter arrived. Some other studies have demonstrated that these four legged friends were not just hunting friends, they also were valued for their qualities of warming.
