Default Sleeping arrangements

Where does everyone's chi's sleep? We are being severely told off by our friends who are dog owners for letting arnie sleep on the bed with us! Pros: he snuggles in and I have a constant hot water bottle and I love snuggling with him. Cons: I constantly worry I'm going to squish him in my sleep, for a little dog he takes up ALOT of room!

I've read loads pro sleeping on the bed and against sleeping on the bed. Just wondered what everyone else did

At night in our house Jaxx sleeps in the living room in his chair unless he is cold then he will go to his crate on his own.
If we take a nap in the daytime Jaxx gets to go to bed with us. I put him on top of the sheet but under a blanket. I do this for a couple reasons. First Jaxx loves to be cuddled under blankets and second, it makes it super easy to move Jaxx if I need to and it makes it harder for me to roll over on him since he is weighing down the sheet from the top.
We tried letting Jaxx sleep with us at night when we first got him but it didn't work for us. The only reason it didn't work for us is because we move around a lot at night and Jaxx was getting woke up a lot which he didn't like.
I love taking a nap with Jaxx though in the daytime because he is so warm and loves to cuddle.

Max sleeps in his crate in our living room. In a way I would like him to sleep with us but we would never sleep properly as we would be too worried about squashing him! We usually watch tv in bed before we go to sleep and we let Max in bed with us then but when it's sleep time he has to his own bed.

Ike sleeps in bed with us, at first I was afraid he will get squished, he likes to snuggle right up against my back , under the covers,to go to sleep. Our pug sleeps with us also and in the morning, Ike is usually up against her, on her blanket, I put on the bed. So I guess if I move around too much he gets out from under the cover and lays with Sadie (pug). Our Fox terrier sleeps in her crate or on the couch, she never liked sleeping with us.

Rolo sleeps in his cage in the kitchen in his squashy bed but to be honest id love to have him in bed with me. Im on my own 4 nights a week as hubby works at night so would be nice but I'm a bit wary about starting it! He's still a bit prone to having a sneaky wee/poo indoors (Rolo not hubby! Ha!) and I'm not entirely sure i trust him. I just have a feeling if I start it he will be there for the rest of his life! He's happy to stay in his cage so I don't want to spoil things.

Bella sleeps in her crate in the corner of our bedroom, she seems very happy there, she knows we are there and I love to hear her little snoring noises.

My dogs sleep with me on my bed. There's just me and I have a queen size bed. so its not really a problem. I know Taz used to sleep in a crate before i got him but I asked the previous owner if I should take his crate for him I don't use a crate for Charlie never have he absolutly hated it when I first got him if I put him in one he would scream non stop till I let him out. She said that she didn't think Taz would want to be in a crate if Charlie wasn't in one as well. So Taz no longer has a crate he seems to be very happy sleeping on the bed with Charlie and I I guess if I was still with my hubby it would be differernt but I don't mind them sleeping with me if it makes them happy. When Charlie was younger he used to like sleeping under the covers but now I guess he gets to warm so he usually sleeps at the bottom of the bed on his own side and Taz sleeps about half way up the bed on the same side as Charlie.They are far enough away from me that I won't rollover on them so it not a problem at all

Honey used to sleep in bed with me, but she started to be soo fidgety in bed, constantly up and down, so for both our sakes, I started crating her. She loves her crate, never wants to get out! x
