What Kind of Sleeper is Your Dog?

I saw an ad in a catalog recently about the different kinds of dog beds.  Never realized that dogs had individualized sleep preferences, so I’m taking a very informal poll.  Please leave a comment below as your answer.

Does your dog like to sleep:

a.  securely enclosed in a bed, with a raised edge on all sides

b. leaning against a back support, similar to a couch

c. sprawled out in all directions

d. burrowed under a cover

To get you started, here’s the skinny on my dogs:

First of all, you should know that my dogs don’t believe in dog beds, or rather they think my bed is theirs. 

Kayla likes the support.  She generally leans against the footboard of my sleigh bed, often resting her head on the top of it. 

Cooper is a sprawler.  He seems to think he needs to take up as much surface area as possible. 

Penny is a burrower.  She’s either under the covers or under the bed entirely. 

Maggie can sleep anywhere.  I can’t say she has an actual preference.

So, what about your dogs? 

I look forward to hearing from you!

Good day, and good dog!

  1. My dog’s preference varies on the temperature, her mood, and where/if the sun is hitting in the house. When she was really sick she sprawled out in the closet, before I go to bed but she’s tired she curls up in some s-shape in the floor. If it suits her she will rest her head on something (the arm of the chair, a shoe, my leg, her friend, a pellow, etc.) I often get out of the shower in the morning and find her not only on the bed but on the pellows (she’s too big for one). I just saw her drag a blanket out of the blanket chest on the landing to sleep on up there. The other day she took up the entire backseat of my friend’s car so her dog had to climb out from under and then over her to get into the front seat. She’s weird.
