    Default Sleepy Time

    Tess is crated during the day while everyone is at work and school but at night we can't decide to crate her or let sleep with us. Our yorkie Leroy used to sleep with us until he was potty train all night now he sleeps with our boys. I just hate crated Tess at night but I want to do whats best. Any ideas? She has sleep at night with us before and wakes us up to let her out so not to worry about that. Just worried if its a good idea!

    I think it is up to you where Tess sleeps. I used to let my Bulldogs sleep on their own bed in my room but the snoring would keep me awake or wake me up and I need a good nights sleep! My boys sleep in "their" room which they share with the washer/dryer! They each have a crate but usually choose to snuggle each other. We have a pet door so they let themselves out to go potty!

    I have to say that I'm not a big fan of crating. So how many hours she would be in the crate versus out of it?

    We crate at night & during the day. We have tried both & Penny does so much better in her crate. When she gets tired she gets incredibly restless (jumping on & off out bed, etc). We have found it best to crate at night. Really it's whatever you are comfortable with. Either way, she will be asleep, so you don't need to feel bad about her sleeping in the crate vs in the bed with you.

    Gio sleeps on my bed. When we first adopted him we kept him in his crate the first few nights until one night both me and Gio fell asleep on the couch watching TV together, and since then he is right next to me every night!

    I have to say it took me a few nights to get used to his snoring but I don't even notice it anymore! Try having her sleep with you one night and see if both you and Tess sleep okay.

    both Sebastian and Oliver sleep in our bed. They don't snore loud so that's awesome and they hardly ever so that's not an issue either. Remy will more than likely join them on the bed with us, good thing we have a king size!!!!
