"While a furry friend in the bedroom can aid in a better night's rest, researchers warned that allowing a dog on your bed will have the opposite effect, according to their findings."

So are they contradicting their own findings?

After a second cup of coffee I saw that the study was about having the dog in the same room  but not on the bed.

Good luck getting your average dog owner to train the dog to not bark at every farking thing that walks past the house, much less stay off the bed

I had a calico cat named Serenity who would lay on me at night when I got into bed, and then would leave once she knew I was asleep.

/Named in honor of my late mother-in-law who was a recovering alcoholic.

Word is she's a total biatch, subby.

"So....she's a dog."

I've known several dogs that would wait till you were asleep, then jump up on the bed with you.

Dogs younger than 6 months help you sleep.

Hahahahaha- no

2 words. Puppy. Bladders.

No dog here yet, but the cat sleeps with me a lot. Haven't really notice a major difference yet.

Molly loves sleeping in the bed.  When she was a puppy I tried to teach her to sleep on her bed and not in the bed with us, didn't work.  She would wait until we fell asleep and then slowly get on the foot of the bed and sleep.  I gave up after a week.  Wifey has taught her the joys of sleeping under the covers. That does get annoying sometimes

kdawg7736: No dog here yet, but the cat sleeps with me a lot. Haven't really notice a major difference yet.

Since adopting Guybrush and LeChuck, the former of whom considers my bed his favorite napping location, I have observed a significant difference in the amount of cat hair on my bedsheets.

My dog (pekingese) acts like he can't quite jump up on the bed and makes me give him a hand to get up there. (for the most part he's content sleeping on his own bed a few feet away, but every once in a while gets "needy.")

But, I've caught him up on the bed when I know I sure didn't lift him up there and neither did anyone else. He's like a kid acting like he can't do something in an effort to get you to do it for him.

My son's biatch on the other hand (border collie) makes no bones about how effortlessly she can get up on the bed and she sleeps with her "boy" (my 16 yr old son) and has done so routinely since we rescued her from the pound 4 yrs ago.  If she wants to sleep in my room, like when there's a thunderstorm, she actually crawls under the bed to her "safe place."

My last dog was a morning dog.  I suppose most are, but she wanted to start her day 4 to 4:30 a.m.  If I fed her and got her outside to pee/poop, I would generally be allowed to go back to bed until 8 so long as she had access to look out the front window which meant not being in my bedroom.

I am reading this article with my puppy on the bed and we are both amused.

With infinite time, and infinite treats, and an immortal dog you can probably train a dog to stay off the bed for as long as you are looking at them. The minute you nod off, the dog will hop in the bed.

A dog that does not help you sleep well. At all.
