    My god, what happened to ppl respectfully agreeing to disagree? Why has everyone seemingly lost being civil & just basic human decency when disagreeing w/fellow humans?? I suspect, much like art/music/driver-ed, they’re no longer teaching civics classes. Look, I get it: we’re passionate abt dogs. Mine gets in bed and sleeps w/us. So while I may not agree 100% w/OP, there’s a respectful way of saying so.

    Even though their Loyal, Loving, Protector, Member of the Family & the Man’s Best Friend. They are still an animal & should be treated like one with Respect, Loving & Devotion as it Deserves! 😉🙂😃

    Sleeping in the bed is where I draw the line. The dog may sleep in my room in his dog bed. But he may not sleep in my bed. Only way is if it’s a miniature or small dog then maybe. Otherwise no. Our dogs never sleep in our beds growing up.

    Apparently, my vet was not included in the poll. When our dog was a puppy, he cried constantly at night. She recommended letting him sleep with us. That was 12 years ago and problem solved.

    The article promises a medical answer but provided no medical/scientific evidence of any danger in sleeping with your pet! Wasted read for me!

    Most of this BS. If these diseases are that easily transmitted then having your dog in your house period is a huge risk. My dogs are family and will always sleep wherever they want. p.s., behavior problems start when you don’t set boundaries early. If you make yourself the alpha you’re still the alpha even in bed. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    A human doctor is not qualified to speak on dogs. My veterinarian of 30+ years experience and certified veterinary behaviorist both say there’s no harm in our dog sleeping in the bed. That’s who I’ll listen to and recommend folks listen to their own veterinarian instead. Many of the points in this article are utterly ridiculous, like getting heartworms from your dog. People should figure out what’s best for their individual situation. Also, if you are going to say there’s evidence you should cite it in text, considering that you are not an expert in the field and therefore can’t simply profess it to be so.

    Disgusting! Call it what you want but at the end of the day you have a filthy animal in your bed. You people are sick. Gross.

    You could make the same arguments against letting another human sleep in your bed. And humans spread venereal diseases.

      Hahaha good one. You’re comparing yourself to a dog. Dog probably smarter then.

    We have had our dogs in our beds for almost 50 years and never had any problems. Didn’t no there would be any problems.

    You know there is always some so called experts out there to tell you want you should and shouldn’t do its called control people. Out little Yorkie has always slept with us since she was 3 months old and she is a perfect well behaved little girl so don’t tell me what I should or shouldn’t do with my dog and how to raise her. So people take my advice do what makes you and your pet happy 😊

      Since my divorce…7 years ago…I have allowed my rescue dogs to sleep with me. Prefer them over a man any day of the week.

      This is an article full of misinformation. One being a human certainly cannot contract heartworm from a canine! Poorly written and researched!

    I have owned a dog and she never slept in my bed. In my opinion it’s just nasty and dirty.

    My dog sleeps in my bed, but I have a large rug that he goes to. Now sometimes he will put his paws on my side. I’ll say go to spot “I point and he does it. My dog is very smart because when I stare at me so I say NO NO and he will go in his cage and not look at me.

    Sleeping in the same bed as a dog that is heartworm positive does not spread heartworms. Mosquitos spread heartworms. What other mistakes are in this article?
