If you have a dog, you probably sleep with it or have done so on occasion. It's also possible that you've been criticized for it, been told it's unhygienic or that you might catch something from it. You may even hide from that annoying friend or your mother that you and your beloved furry friend take some great naps together.
Is it bad to sleep with my dog?
Not at first, as long as you maintain a series of precautions. We assume that your furry one is up to date with his vaccinations and that you maintain minimum hygiene habits. But there is no such thing as zero risk, so it is best to weigh the pros and cons of sharing a bed with your pet.
What are the advantages of sleeping with my dog?
The first, and most obvious, is that it is a real pleasure. The pleasant and peaceful sensation of listening to his calm breathing (and even his sighs) while he sleeps is incomparable.
The bond that is created between you and your dog when you share a bed is indescribable, unparalleled.The bond between you and your dog when you share a bed is indescribable, incomparable, and those emotional ties that unite you become, if possible, much stronger.

Sleeping with your pet reduces stress and anxiety. After a hard day's work, this is the best way to relax and forget about everyday problems.
But it's not all advantages... what about the cons?

And if, even though you try to keep everything under control, there is also the risk that he can infect us with a parasite or flea. parasite or flea... it's a dog.

If you have a partner, the best thing for your intimacy is not exactly to have a furry intruder watching your every move.
So... what is the best solution?
Don't worry, it's okay if from time to time your dog jumps on the bed and you are unable to say no to him. Your dog loves sleeping with you, and you love sleeping with him. That's just the way it is. But sometimes, for a thousand reasons (lack of space in the bed, lack of intimacy, heat...) you prefer that he is not there all the time.
In that case, you must set the rules and teach him to get off when you ask him to.
A good solution is for him to have his own little bed, if you want it close to yours, where he also feels comfortable and safe. A bed appropriate to its size and characteristics, which will provide a good quality rest.
