    Default Sleeping under covers

    Can anyone tell me if it is okay to let Gracie sleep under the covers, when there isn't a lot of air circulating under there? It may sound crazy, but I don't want her to get overheated and have problems breathing, like in the heat.

    Default Sleeping under the covers

    Gracie loves to sleep under the bed covers, but I'm afraid she'll overheat, so I make her come out after awhile. Is it possible for her to overheat, as if she's in the sun?

    I would say she could overheat and not worth taking the risk.

    That's a good question.

    I'm thinking about it right now and just from logical reasoning I'm thinking of these things:
    1.) If the bulldog is by himself under the covers (no extra body heat from somebody else) it's probably okay because then he can take out the covers if he gets hot.
    2.) If it's the middle of summer, probably not a good idea.
    3.) If I'm hot under the covers, then it would definitely be too hot for the dog.
    4.) Is he choosing to go under the covers, or did I put it on him?

    That said... I'm not sure what the answer is...

    My dogs sleep in their crates with the door open. If they get too hot, they would move. In winter, I put a blanket on the wire crate to cover 3 sides and the top because their crates are right next to the ginormous cold window. But, I've never had a dog sleep under the covers... even when they sleep on my bed.

    I'd be interested in some more responses to this thread...

    So strange..Banks has recently started doing this and we have no idea why... She did overheat one night and we since have started pulling her out and not letting her under. even stranger she only does it at bedtime not during they day or during naps

    Matilda does this too! She always tries to burrow under the covers with me. I make her at least put her face out, I'm worried about her breathing. I usually just pull her back out until she gives up hahaha

    Thanks so much for everyone's reply. I think I'll keep her on the covers instead. Have a peaceful and Bullie snoring night

    Since my dog's name is Bullie, I use bully for general use.

    Otis loves to get under the covers. He will go down to the bottom of the bed at our feet. I tell my husband as long as he is snoring I guess he is alright.
