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!
