10 Reasons Why Your Dog Shouldn't Sleep With You

Dogs have different sleep patterns than humans, often waking up to alert you to perceived threats, which can lead to interruptions in your sleep.

1. Broken Sleep

A third party (your dog) in bed can inhibit intimacy and disturb your partner's sleep, especially if they have allergies or a fear of dogs.

2.Damaging Relationships

Dogs can bring dirt, mud, urine, feces, and shed fur into your bed, potentially affecting your bed linen.

3. Hygiene

Loose fur and dander left on bed linen can trigger allergies, making it uncomfortable for you or your partner.

4. Allergies

Dogs can carry fleas, roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms, mites, and ticks, which can be transmitted to you through close contact in bed.

5. Parasites

Dogs can transmit diseases like ringworm, Lyme disease, salmonellosis, leptospirosis, and toxoplasmosis to humans during sleep.

6. Zoonotic Diseases

Rolling onto your dog or surprising it in your sleep can lead to injuries for both you and your pet.

7. Risk of Injury

Dogs may become reliant on sleeping with you, leading to separation anxiety and issues when you need to sleep apart.

8. Developing Codependency

Allowing your dog to sleep on your bed can lead to territorial and dominance issues.

9. Blurring Dominance Boundaries

Dogs don't understand nuance, so if you let them sleep on your bed, they may expect access to other furniture, potentially causing problems in various settings.
