Hi just wondering where does your chihuahua sleep? When we first got Bruiser he had alot of health problems so he slept in the bed with us to start with (which I know yes is not ideal ! lol) anyway he then learnt to sleep on the floor in his own little bed beside me. Then when we got my partner's dog Ozzy (Shar-pei) they both sleep downstairs now in crates. Just wondered what everyone else does?

Thanks x

Both my girls sleep next to my bed in a crate.
They are such good girls, not a peep out of them, i only have to get up once during the night for pee time now.

wow that is good although Bruiser doesnt wake at all during the night to go for a pee he will wait until I get up which is great, unless my three year old little boy Marshall wakes up and starts shouting then Bruiser will want my attention too lol

i know she shouldnt but lexi has always slept in my bed, usually above the pillow which is apparantly a sign of domineering, but she always goes downstairs after everyone is settled in bed then comes back up after she has nosed around downstairs, not sure why, whether she is making sure no one is down there i dont know x

Mine always sleep in their own beds downstairs. But my daughter was unwell this week and snuck them both up to her bed on two nights running.

The pups now howl at night ever since - wanting to go upstairs to her bed.

How come it takes forever to teach them good habits - and then those you don't want them learning they learn like greased lightening!! Brats!!

madison used to sleep in her pen downstairs - then she started causing lots of issues (barking, etc) at night, so now she's in our bed. Not probably how it "should" be, but honestly we enjoy having her there and I feel less guilty about leaving her in her pen during the day when we're at work.

It's also probably why she creates such a rukus when we try and do anything without her....oh well!

Tabitha and Jerry sleep in their crates which sit next to each other in the Family Room. When he was an only dog, he slept in crate in my room. But he is noisy at night and I wasn't getting any sleep! Now, the two of them are very quiet in their matching crates. They get really excited when I announce, "time for night-nights"! Each wants to be the first to get tucked in...

In bed with people !! Even at the sitter, he sleeps in bed with her as well. He causes no problem at all. I wake up early and set hi down to go out to his piddle.

He has several bed that he sleeps in during the day but if I am in bed he comes running over.

Both of our boys sleep right in our bed with us. They always sleep thru the entire night, not a peep! Only snoring.

oh dear thats not good hey!!

Bruiser seems to like his crate and it is a safe place for him to stay in too when we nip out to take the kids to school and nursery etc, although I try and take him most places I cant take him everywhere

Nugget sleeps in the bed with me. He's usually very quiet, except for maybe some occasional scratching, or the rare bad dream. But I put up with it, because he never takes issue with my tossing and turning.

He's like a living, breathing teddy bear. ;-)
