I know that many people sleep with their dogs and occasionally I may bring him in the bed in the morning after his early morning walk to go back to sleep for a little bit but how many of you actually sleep with your fur babies? I am so afraid I’m going to roll over on him or hurt him or flip him off the bed or something. I feel like he’s so fragile any unintentional quick movement could be dangerous for him. He loves to sleep on my hip if I’m on my side or if I’m on my back he’s on my belly. Am I exaggerating? This is now after our early morning walk. He’s on my belly and there’s a pillow on my left under the blanket.

I have been sleeping with our "Fur Babies" for a very long time. Both our Chrissy (Malt) and one of our Cats (Toodles) sleep with me and have not had any issues at all. Our little Laci (tiny Yorkie) sleeps in her Crate at night where she actually lets us know that she wants to go to bed.

Nani sleeps with us. She has been since she was about 4 months old. She likes to cuddle up right next me to sleep and when she needs to stretch out she just moves away. I have not had any issues and she sleeps between us, not on the edge of the bed.

Very cute picture!
Abella has been sleeping with me since she turned 1 year old. She is my favorite bed buddy - She snuggles right next to my pillow on a little blankie! Having her in bed next to me & listening to her breathing helps me sleep on my many rough sleepless nights - She is definitely my therapy dog. I guess I should add she isn't a teeny tiny maltese and weighs in at 7 lbs. Maltese are not as fragile as some may think.

I love sleeping with my dogs. Zooey sleeps on a pillow next to me. She is a cobby 8 lb. girl, so I've never worried about rolling on her. If i had a puppy Malt or a tiny Malt, I'd probably put them in a crate next to me on the bed or nightstand.

Hi! I sleep with my baby Cody on my pillow in my arms every night although long time ago I used to worry he would fall off on my hard wood floor and get hurt. I bought a bed bumper. Google bed bumper it attaches to the mattress like a inch or taller so in case the puppy rolls to close you will have a bumper on the mattress. It helped me because I would wake up at times and he would roll over and the bumper held him up. You won’t even notice it! It’s thin. I actually have it on one side of the bed too.

I sleep with Whisper, but I think if you're worried about it, you won't be getting good sleep. Subconscioiusly you'll be thinking about rolling on the pup. Do what you're most comfortable with. That's the best choice for both of you, imho.

Omgosh, I think I’m the only one who doesn’t allow their dogs to sleep in their bed. I used to with my prior maltese but as they aged they leaked urine, so I opted against it with my 3 girls now. Well...actually, I let Suki sleep with me but I hate admitting that out loud, lol.
I would worry more of them falling off, then rolling on top of them, imo.
